We want the Wyre Forest to work better
its landscape and its livelihoods

The Wyre Forest is no wilderness. For centuries, people worked the land. And, by carefully managing the farms and forests, they created a special environment, rich in wildlife and plant species. 

At the Wyre Community Land Trust, we want to put this landscape back to work.

It’s not about turning back the clock. It’s about building a sustainable future – by nurturing the environment, offering great value local products, and making it more viable for more people to earn a living from the land.

BUY OUR PASTURE FED BEEF

One of the ways we manage the landscape is with our pedigree herd of Dexter cattle. So, we also have a steady supply of slow-grown, flavoursome beef, with its distinctive grass-fed marbling.

OUR STORY

We take our inspiration from the work of John Ruskin, the Victorian writer, art critic and conservationist, who loved the natural landscape and cared deeply about rural livelihoods.
Our home is at Ruskin Land, a piece of the Wyre Forest that was given to John Ruskin in the 1870s, and our landlord is the Guild of St George – a charity he set up to provide opportunities for working people to cultivate land and reconnect with nature.
