Martin Large of the Biodynamic Land Trust spoke out about the Co-Operative’s plans for sale of their land to a single buyer that could even be a foreign investor. Rush Farm rightly gets a mention as a perfect example of how community ownership can flourish.

No accountability to members. Who will give the farm workers a voice and when will the coop members find their voice?”
