Farming Policy

The farmed area has grown over the years and is now around 2,500 acres of which 700 are owned by the partnership and the balance is rented from or contract farmed for local landowners.

In 2013 a new purpose built graindryer and store was built at Kensham Farm, the Svegma graindryer installed by BDC Systems has the capacity to dry 46 tonnes per hour and is linked to new storage bunkers that hold 3,000 tonnes and a conveyor to the existing grainstores.

In 2019 we invested in a further 1,400 tonnes of storage capacity at Kensham Farm to make better use of the new graindrying facility.

Arable crops grown are predominantly milling wheat, with some winter barley and spring wheat, all sold exclusively through our farmer owned co-operative Openfield.

We are proud to share hosting Open Farm Sunday with our neighbours Laceys' Family Farm. We also host regular farm walks and visits from local Scout groups, charities, Berkshire College of Agriculture and Chiltern Arable Group.
