Last year the Council launched a review and inquiry into the future of the estate taking evidence from 39 witnesses and made recommendations for a new Cornwall Council’s Farms Strategy.

We are now consulting on the draft Cornwall Council’s Farms Strategy 2019 – 2039 which sets out our intentions for the Council Farms Estate. This strategy will be the framework for making a step change in the role and purpose of the estate enabling tenants to grow successful businesses which also deliver environmental growth, promote health and wellbeing and enhance the distinctive historic landscape of Cornwall.
