The farm enterprize is traditionally run. 30 acres arable and 150 acres permanent & temparary grass. The soil types vary from sand to medium loam to clay silt on the grassland. The average field size is eight acres. This is small compared with other farms.

 

 

The grass is wash land. This means it goes under water most years when the river floods. Suckler  cows  and  calves graze  the fields in the summer  and  fattened inside during the winter months. The beef animals are eventually sold at Newark Livestock Market.

 

The arable land grows Wheat, Barley and Fodder Beet  which  are  all  feed  to  our  cattle.
