The Estate currently manages an in-hand farm of 8,900 acres both of lowland pasture and upland grazing. We are always looking to continuously develop our farming enterprise and hope to gain our organic accreditation by 2021. We are committed to the highest standards of animal welfare and husbandry. The Estate currently manages a flock of 600 North Country Cheviot sheep and may look to diversify this further at a later stage.

We operate an extensive pasture based production system where grazing livestock are an integral and essential habitat management resource whilst also providing us with a long-term sustainable approach to our farming enterprise.

Should you wish to know more about our farming enterprise please contact the Estate Office.
