Continuity of management is essential to protect the interests of the owners in the common land. Currently Ray leases the Working farm from Gracefarm Inc. Society which manages the common land on behalf of lot owners. The initial lease is for a term of 6years (3X2) commenced on 1st June 2008

The rules for Gracefarm Inc. require that the productive land is leased to a farmer sympathetic to the concept and common ownership. Find out more: Down load the management agreement

Income: Gracefarm Inc. earns rent income from leasing the farm land and rent from the cottage. Gracefarm is also registered with the emissions trading scheme and earns credits from  some of the  covenanted bush which was re vegetated in native trees by us during the last 6 years. This is a permanent carbon sink.  There are some maintenance and administrations costs and the  net income is distributed back to lot owners. The return to the each lot owner for the year to 31st March 2013 was $1850 while Gracefarm Inc. Society also retained some for reserves. Gracefarm incorporated audited annual accounts are available on request
