Farming

We look after a large amount of farmland across the UK. We’re working with our farms and tenants to produce local and seasonal food in an environmentally sustainable way

Our tenants don't just provide great produce from the land. Steve and Natalie Harrison's family-run business in Wales supplies sustainably harvested and delicious ready-to-eat crab to local cafes and bars.

National Trust joins launch of Nature Friendly Farming Network  

Nature friendly farming policies not only produce affordable, healthy food, they look after local wildlife, help reduce the impacts of climate change and keep the soil healthy for generations. We are calling on the UK and devolved governments to give their support after Brexit.

Our views on food and farming 

We love sustainably produced, local and seasonal food because it's better for the special places we look after, better for the environment and tastes better too. Read about our views on food and farming.

Our landscapes

We value our landscape and as one of the UK’s largest landowners, keep our land accessible for future generations.
