Farm and Estate Management

Yattendon is in many ways a traditional farming estate. The Estate operates a large farm and also has two tenanted farms.

The Estate farm covers an area of 2,201 hectares (5,438 acres). The crops grown are Wheat, Barley, Oil Seed Rape, Maize and Lucerne. 

The land is also used to keep a herd of rare breed British White cattle.

We also rent additional arable land and undertake contract farming activities for local landowners. 

The two tenanted farms extend to 352 hectares (869 acres). Bower Farm, Aldworth has been farmed by the Walters family for over 100 years and Buckhold Hill Farm, Bradfield has been farmed by the Ward family for over 50 years.
