About the Edgley Family at Kensham Farm
Kensham Farms is a family farming partnership that was started by Bryan and Alison Edgley soon after they married in 1955. At that time it was a standard mixed farm covering just over 100 acres.
In the 1960s the main enterprises at Kensham Farm were milk production from a herd of Friesian cows, egg production (selling eggs both wholesale and retail) and production of grain for use in home milled and mixed poultry and cattle feeds.
The dairy cows were sold in 1971 and egg production ceased in 1992. Bryan and Alison's youngest son Charlie joined the partnership in 1985 and has greatly expanded the arable cropping side of the business. Charlie runs the farm on a day-to-day basis and enjoys supporting Arsenal and playing in goal for the Marlow Dukes.
Bryan and Alison's eldest grandson Alex started working on the farm full time in 2013 having graduated from Aberystwyth University with a degree in International Relations and completing a few ski seasons in the USA. Alex is increasingly responsible for the farm diversification (riding trails and let workshops) and is Chairman of the South Bucks & Middlesex branch of the NFU.
Charlie's son Angus graduated from Plumpton Agricultural College in Summer 2018 and is keen to learn all aspects of good crop husbandry and farming. If he isn't in a tractor Angus can often be found beating on local shoots or at an electronica gig or festival.
