Farming & Conservation

Sundorne Castle Estate operates its own innovative arable enterprise over 1500 acres, and supports a number of additional tenant farms.

It is principally an arable farm growing a combination of oilseed rape, milling wheat, malting barley, potatoes, maize and rye to assured standards.

It is at the forefront of emerging technology in employing GPS yield mapping data, soil sampling, airborne gLAI images and various practical trials to reduce the requirement for intensive land working and inputs whilst producing crops to a high standard.

It has a strong environmental pedigree and is actively engaged in its own conservation policy as well as national and international initiatives to improve biodiversity.

The Estate employs conservation habitats along boundaries and water courses and retains undisturbed ancient woodland in an effort to protect the natural environment and biodiversity for the future.
