Farming Competitions

In 2008 the Estate was very successful in the local farm competitions as judged by the Royal South Bucks Agricultural Association and the Royal East Berks Agricultural Association.

The most notable of these was the Royal South Bucks Agricultural Association King's Cup, awarded for the best overall farm in the area - a very prestigious cup that was won on the first year of entering.
