Our top kitchen gardens

When it comes to self sufficiency, we're leading the way at many of our kitchen gardens. From keeping rare breed chickens to growing organic Georgian prickly cucumbers, the fully working kitchen gardens on our estates are great places to witness the ‘plot to plate’ revolution. Experience the good life and learn how easy, fun and interesting it is to grow your own produce.
