Farming

The company owns over 1,100 acres of farmland in the Weald of Kent

The majority of this land is rented out to neighbouring farmers

The top fruit orchards consist of Bramley, Cox, Russet and Braeburn apples, and conference pears. New varieties recently planted are Reubens and Cameo.

Main crops grown on the arable ground are wheat, barley, oil seed rape and winter beans

The strawberry sites consist of intensive “table top” systems, under tunnels

The grassland is used for cattle and sheep grazing, and hay cropping

Grassland next to the River Beult (SSSI) is managed with the aid of a grant via the countryside stewardship scheme. This is done on a low input regime, to help protect the area’s unique clay river valley environment

Our farm woodlands are managed and maintained to retain value, and a small scale felling and replanting programme is in operation

The whole farm is registered under the government’s Entry Level Stewardship Scheme (ELS) which allows a number of options for managing the land in an environmentally sensitive way

Cottage Rentals

Our residential units are continually being refurbished and improved to enable us to attract high quality tenants. The portfolio includes over 30 cottages and houses in the Weald of Kent; many of them let out on short-term leases.
