Forest Larder Limited was founded in early 2019 by Christopher Sai Eccles.
The mission of this company is to produce household consumables from perennial polyculture installations. The company’s first site was acquired in Spring 2019 and is situated in the Mendip Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, North Somerset.
Once, and likely again, I was told that Forest Larder was a waste of my education; that it was not worth pursuing. The belief that farming is a lesser task has been pervasive since the Industrial Revolution. This perspective fails to appreciate how much learning is required to turn back the clock on our species’ domination of the Earth’s land and seas. Farming has not been solved, our agricultural activities have come at great environmental cost, the future of our planet depends on the determination of our generation to harmonise humanity and nature.
Isolated systems do not exist, the Earth experiences every act in time, isolated mindsets are the problem.Christopher Sai
