Farm Walk 2019

On the evening of 3rd July the Estate hosted a farm walk in aid of RABI and the Addington Fund, with over a 100 people in attendance we were fortunate to have perfect weather for the event. Everyone took to tractors and trailers at the grain stores for a tour of the in-hand farm and guests were given talks by key members of the Estate team for their different areas of responsibility which included:

• Forestry
• Beef production
• Arable crops
• Game keeping
• River keeping
• Environmental stewardship

The tour itself included the beef herd with cows grazing with their calves at foot, stewardship margins and grassland, some small areas of woodland as well as a variety of arable crops. On return to the grain store guests were greeted with the aroma of hog roast for them to enjoy and an ice-cream van.

The event raised £1,300 which will all go towards assisting both charities in the great work they do.
