Incorporating a range of different farming systems, our farms demonstrate a mix of enterprises run on a commercial basis.

The University farms are based at two locations in close proximity to the campus. Coates Manor Farm and Harnhill Manor Farm total 491 hectares in size (1,200 acres), and offer very different farming systems. There is also an equine enterprise providing a stabling and livery facility at Fossehill Farm. All the enterprises are run on a commercial basis, and our students benefit through access to their physical and financial data.Coates Manor Farm is predominantly arable cropped, with some pasture land supporting the equine activity.

We currently grow feed and milling wheat, oilseed rape and spring malting barley.
