Jubilee Farm's story

Jubilee is a Christian creation care organisation. We define 'creation care' as environmental and agricultural stewardship that incorporates fairness and flourishing, welfare and wellbeing.

We practice and promote care farming, community-supported agriculture (CSA), and conservation education and engagement, with people of all backgrounds and beliefs at Jubilee Farm, Northern Ireland's first community-owned farm.

Our award-winning agricultural and environmental work benefits volunteers, refugees and asylum seekers, adults with learning difficulties, churches, and communities.

Between August 2018 and January 2019 we raised £309,020 to purchase and equip the first community-owned farm in Northern Ireland! This included £184,020 in community share capital, £115,000 in peer-to-peer loans and a £10,000 grant.

As well as producing wonderful food, our 13.5 acres of fields, woodland and river frontage are the perfect setting for families, churches, schools and other groups to reconnect with food, farming and nature.

Useful learnings from Jubilee Farm

Our advice for others would be to have a vision, research and visit similar projects, involve people, and be resilient.
