The announcement that Long Compton Abattoir (LCA) is to close in January 2024 is a devasting blow to the region.  Without a thriving local abattoir, our farm businesses, grazing work, rare breeds, direct sales, butcheries, landscape recovery projects, regenerative practices, and localised food system etc. all become less viable.  Animal welfare is at risk and food miles will increase.

A small team of local stakeholders are working hard to save Long Compton. We believe it is a viable business with an important role to play. Negotiations are underway and a farmer buy out via a new private company limited by shares is being considered.

The priority is to show that we can raise in excess of £3m, at pace. We are thus seeking expressions of interest from potential investors, big and small. If successful we can then progress to the next stage of negotiation.
