New Hall Farm
Enjoy Learn Remember
New Hall Farm is a working farm, growing wheat, barley , oilseed rape, beans and grass. Environmental management has been a major part of our farming practice for the last 30 plus years. We have a small flock of sheep grazing some of the stewardship grassland. We pride ourselves in running what we consider a balanced farming system, producing a quality, affordable food staple whilst maintaining a thriving and diverse wildlife environment, supporting a number of red and amber list species.
Our visits provide an opportunity for students to get out in the fields and see what we do first hand. Use the visit to help illustrate what you are learning in school, and most importantly to generate questions.
