The Estate has a tradition of farming going back to the Norman Conquest, and quite possibly beyond! These days we work with a small band of dedicated farmers and families to continue to produce food and animal feed on the estate. This ranges from high quality milling wheat, right through to pork and lamb production. The majority of the approximately 1800 acres of land on Spains Hall Estate is managed for arable crops such as wheat, barley and oil-seed rape.
The people who farm the land are a mix of families who have been part of the Estate for many generations, and more recently local farming businesses. They are all integral to our way of life and the health of a rural Estate.
