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 tour a 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 took in 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.
