Farmers cooperative Dornington in Sussex is taking over the Coopers rock after it was sold to the local authorities.
The cooperative was founded in the 1920s and operates a small business.
However, due to a series of events, the cooperative has been taken over by the local authority, which has taken control of the property and is making it a public park.
The cooperative is expected to start working on the land next month.
According to the Cooper rock Trust, the new owners have committed to “supporting a cooperative farming and community engagement programme” and are looking to expand to other areas in the county.
Cooper Rock is known for being a favourite spot for farmers and is often used as a gathering place for locals.
Its proximity to the Coombs and Eastleigh rivers and the neighbouring village of Dorn, also known as Dornbury, have been popular with the locals.
In a statement, the trust said: “The cooperative is excited about being given the opportunity to continue the work it started in Dornham in the 1930s and to be given the support of the local community and government.
It is a great opportunity to work together with other cooperatives to support farmers, coopers and rural communities in the future.”
Dornbury is home to a large number of coopers.
The name comes from the town’s farm and it has a reputation as a farm-to-table food destination.
The farm has a long history and is thought to have been established in the 18th century.
