Welcome to the farm
A E Nesbitt Farms Ltd owns the the 405 hectare North Standen Estate which lies on the West Berkshire/Wiltshire border and falls within the North Wessex Downs area of outstanding natural beauty.
The farmland has registered organic status under Soil Association Licence Number G2436. The main farming activities focussed on are beef cattle and organic crops.
The farm runs two herds of native British cattle under the herd pre-fix “Cleland”, being polled Herefords and British Whites, as well as a flock of Wiltshire Horn sheep. All the animals are pure pedigree examples of their breed.
Arable activities at the farm generally consist of barley, oats and beans grown in rotation and destined for organic brewing, porridge and animal feed customers.
Our policy is to farm in an environmentally friendly way. We try to encourage the proliferation of wildlife and biodiversity alongside our farming activities, as much as we can.
We support the aims of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust and keep small numbers of rare or minority breeds such as Hebridean Sheep, Berkshire pigs, Sebastopol geese and Buff Orpington chickens – as well as our British White cattle and Wiltshire Horn sheep.Discover the farm
