ARABLE FARMING

Whilst the forestry is light sandstone, the arable ground is predominantly clay, and recently our focus has been on growing cereals, including Winter Wheat, Winter Oats, Spring Barley and Beans.

Under our Entry-Level and Higher-Level Environmental Stewardship scheme we trim our hedges only once every three years, and maintain untouched field corners, wild bird seed strips, and sow pollen & nectar mixes, to preserve a vital habitat for wildlife faced with the modern day pressures of urban expansion.
