Travellers Rest Farm

Travellers Rest Farm

This 2000 acre farm has been in the same family since 1960. It is mostly arable, with a variety of crops such as wheat for bread and animal feed, barley for beer, oilseed rape for oil and beans for export. There are about 100 hectares of permanent grassland, all farmed without fertilizer, to encourage a diverse flora. Much is steep, and there is a block of meadow alongside the River Stour.   The grassland provides food for about 350 ewes and their lambs, as well as a herd of 26 beef suckler cows and their progeny. There are also 25 hectares of woodland, some mixed deciduous, some plantation, and an area where an outdoor woodland classroom is planned. The farm also boasts several interesting sets of traditional buildings.
