BE continues to be involved in the drive to save College Farm

Monday, March 06, 2017

In March 2016 the £1.4m farm facility at West Somerset College appeared about to close when the Bridgwater College Trust decided that it was no longer sustainable.  

Since then BE has worked alongside other groups and individuals to persuade the Trust to fund the farm until August 2017 enabling current students to finish their education.  

BE continues to work with the trust and other organisations to try to find a viable business plan going forward to save the farm.  

Richard Webber of BE said "The college farm has been a valuable resource keeping local youngsters on Exmoor to continue their education.  It is important to everyone that Exmoor continues to attract local talent and keeps a vibrant business community going in this rural area".
