Symonds Hall Farm is a traditional family-owned mixed farm situated on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds, within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The farm was mentioned in the Domesday Book and was part of the Berkeley Estate until 1919. Its mix of farming activities (livestock and arable), varied landscape (Cotswold plateau and valley), diverse habitats (grassland, arable, woodland, hedgerows, ponds) and excellent accessibility by road make it an ideal location for educational visits. The majority of the 700-acre farm is grassland with other crops grown including: wheat; maize, and potatoes. The farm has around 550 cattle including a dairy herd of 220 cows.
