The Estate has around 6,260 acres which are farmed ‘in-hand’ by the Euston Farms, on which they grow wheat, barley, oilseed rape, beans and sugar beet. The land is also used for free-range pig and poultry farming and potato, carrot and parsnip production by agreement with other producers.
We are particularly proud of the ‘Suffolk Trinity’; our own Grafton herd of Red Poll cattle, along with Suffolk Punch horses (bred by Lady Euston - mother of the current Duke) and the Suffolk sheep, which can all be seen on Estate grassland.
Farm management has been described as ‘traditional meets modern’ where commercial farming dovetails with conservation measures. The whole of our farming enterprise is part of five separate Higher Level Stewardship Schemes. In March 2016, Euston Farms was awarded the accolade of 'Greenest Farming Business' in the Creating the Greenest County Awards.
In conjunction with the Estate, Strutt and Parker Farms operate a 2.5MW gas to grid Anaerobic Digestion Plant producing gas to fuel over 5,000 homes.
Euston enjoys a special relationship with Barnham CEVC Primary School, situated in the neighbouring village of Barnham:
