New Food Community Enterprise Announced

Langley House Trust is delighted to be working with ‘Food Up Front: Elderfield’ – a not-for-profit community food enterprise that is utilising land at our Winchester project, Elderfield.

Incorporating food production, volunteering and training, the project will bring a number of benefits to people in the local area.

The project will also provide an opportunity for ex-offenders at Elderfield to develop new skills and gain voluntary experience as part of turning their lives around after prison.


“It’s great that Langley House Trust has made it possible for us to develop this enterprise at Elderfield, enabling us to provide the local area with fresh food and offer training and volunteering opportunities,” says Seb Mayfield, founder of of Food Up Front: Elderfield. “I visited Elderfield in 2014 when undertaking a piece of work for the Winchester Basics Bank on creating a more just local food system. When I found out that they had land available which had previously been used for a market garden, the potential was obvious.”

Work is underway at the site and ‘Food Up Front: Elderfield’ is keen to hear from people or organisations interested in the project. To get in contact, visit
