Plotgate Venture

Plotgate Venture is a co-operative exploring the appropriate use and development of the rural environment, to increase resilience in an uncertain world.

                                                      A Good life for all!
On 23 acres of land in Somerset, we are practising and playing with enlightened agricultural principles to create an abundant, minimal input food system that is able to meet our apetites, whilst enriching the ecological diversity of the land.

We see people as part of this ecology and wish to create a place where we can work and live lightly together, sharing our skills and resources to realise our aspiration of "A Good life for all."

Plotgate Venture is open to new members looking to participate in this process and discover their niche.


We hold regular, monthly work weekends which are a great opportunity to come and get stuck in and learn about what we're doing. Let us know if you'd like to join us by getting in touch via the Contact Us page.
