Killerton estate produce
With 20 farms, 50 acres of orchards and large areas of forest and woodland, Killerton estate is able to produce a range of sustainable, local products including meat, dairy, charcoal, firewood, flour, cider and apple juice.
Killerton was recognised for its high quality sparkling cider, apple juice, honey, and flour when it won three National Trust Fine Farm Produce Awards in 2018. One of the estate's tenant farms, Burrow Farm also won an award.
Killerton apple juice has a moreish sweet-sharp taste and is pressed using traditional West Country dessert apples grown in the Acland family’s orchards at Killerton. No chemicals are used and the orchards are a real haven for wildlife. Straight after harvesting, the juice is locally made for sale on the estate.
Stone milled flour
Clyston Mill is a traditional water mill at the heart of the Killerton Estate and nestled by the river Clyst. The mill is cared for by custodians Brian and Ursula Kirby who worked to reopen it as a visitor attraction and working mill in 2005. They volunteer their time to mill all the award winning flour, which is sold locally and used by the restaurant and café at Killerton.
Charcoal and firewood
Killerton’s charcoal and firewood logs are made by the Ranger team and assisted by a regular countryside volunteer group. The timber used to make the charcoal and logs is a product of our woodland management in Ashclyst Forest. All the timber is removed with careful attention to reduce disturbance to habitats, allowing the products to be truly sustainable and ‘fuel to the fire’ of habitat conservation at Killerton.
