The Farm : Arable

The Arable

There are 360 ha of arable land where we grow wheat, oilseed rape, beans and maize.  In 2008, we joined with four other local farms to create NDR Arable LLP.  This partnership carries out the major arable operations across all three farms.  This allows us to enjoy economies of scale as we have the most modern machines to cover the ground quickly and efficiently.  The grain is then stored on the farm and sold throughout the winter and spring by the marketing group Openfields. Much of our wheat goes to Warburtons for bread.  We also transfer some of the feed wheat, beans and straw to the cattle venture.  The arable enterprise operates within the scope of various environmental schemes.  These include measures such as leaving field margins or cutting the hedges less frequently.
