Farming and Agriculture
Farming and agriculture is the foundation of South Ormsby Estate’s local economy, with a wide range of crops, livestock and farming businesses in the area.
As South Ormsby Estate works to create a brighter future for the local area by supporting the growth of a modern and dynamic rural economy, agriculture and agribusiness is a fundamental part of our vision.
To meet future challenges, fluctuations in the British economy and price volatility, the Estate is supporting innovation and diversification of existing agricultural business and creating an environment where farms and rural businesses can flourish.
Through its farming businesses, including Massingberd-Mundy Lincoln Red Beef, the Estate is playing a key role in supporting traditional rural business. The Estate also supports other growers and producers by creating a better economic and trading environment and by offering support and training initiatives.
Sharing best practice and agricultural diversification are important parts of creating a sustainable and profitable environment as is the development of field-to-table business models.
Agriculture plays an important role in protecting the area’s natural beauty, character, heritage and biodiversity and this is supported by an Estate-wide biodiversity plan and conservation activity.
