Higher Newham Farm forms a unique partnership between Duchy College, the Cornwall Food Foundation and Living Villages south of Truro’s city centre. It seeks to contribute towards Cornwall’s future with a traditional village community based around learning, living and working the land.
The proposal combines an education based, community working farm with a place to eat, a holistic cook school and new exemplar homes as a sustainable village. The village will be set within a wider, enhanced landscape. This landscape forms 80% of the 21.22ha and has also been gifted to the local community via a charitable trust to preserve it in perpetuity.
