Food & farming

We are committed to supporting sustainably produced, local and seasonal food because it is better for the special places we look after, better for the environment and tastes better too.

Knowing where your dinner has come from is important, and our farmers pride themselves on producing quality local food. Many of our tenant farmers have shops selling tasty produce grown on our land. Run independently, these shops are often close to our houses, gardens and parks and can provide a tasty treat to take home from your day out.
