Welcome to Burwash Manor
Farm. We hope that this website will give you
an idea of what our farm is like, and hopefully
it will encourage you to pay us a visit.
Burwash Manor Farm
is a working organic farm - a 400 acre, mixed
arable and livestock farm - and we also have an
HLS scheme in place, which means that DEFRA thinks
we are farming using the best methods of conservation
We have signposted
walks around the farm, which anyone can turn
up and do at anytime; we also organise educational
visits. During the year we host regular events
that are aimed at teaching everyone about the
traditional ways of the countryside, such as Open
Farm Sunday and Apple Day.
We have cereal variety trial plots on the farm,
where both new and established varieties are grown
for yield testing purposes. In addition, we regularly
have students conducting research on the farm
as part of their under/post graduate studies.
You'll also find plenty of other things to do
at Burwash Manor. We've converted some of our
old farm buildings to 15 shops, a day spa and
a tea room - if you'd like to know more about
them please visit www.burwashmanor.com.
Tossing and turning of grass to dry it out is called 'tedding'.
