Given the extent of the land holding, farming is one of the most significant activities, with over 2,000 acres being farmed in-hand.
This is done in conjunction with Farmcare under a standard rotational crop cycle of wheat, barley and rape, with the addition of a rotation of fallow, potatoes and vining peas.
EEL also manage approximately 800 acres of grassland, predominately for sheep, cattle and horses.
There is also two long term agricultural tenant with whom the Estate enjoys a good working relationship.
There is a small herd of Highland Cattle grazing in the parkland, and horse liveries are also offered here on a monthly basis. See the Contact Us page.
