Stockwood Community Benefit Society was set up in 2012 with support from the Biodynamic Land Trust (BDLT), to create a visionary community asset. A successful share offer in 2013 led to the purchase of the property in June 2014.
A further offer in 2016 allowed the purchase of the remainder of Rush Farm, and the development of successful renewable energy projects, and Stockwood now owns Rush Farm and Stockwood Business Park for community benefit in perpetuity.
Stockwood Community Benefit society runs Rush Farm and Stockwood Business park. Rush farm is a beautiful 180 acre mixed farm in Stockwood, Worcestershire. It is certified as biodynamic and organic. Stockwood Business Park is an ethically and sustainably-run business which contributes to the local, rural economy and provides local employment by renting offices and workshops to local businesses.

Rush Farm is working within the Higher Level Stewardship scheme to encourage wildlife by ensuring insects, birds and hares to live on the farm.
