Sherbourne House Farm is a small traditional family-run business of about 400 acres. The past 20 years have seen an increasing use of environmentally-friendly farming methods, including entry to the Countryside Stewardship Scheme in the early 1990's. Joining the Entry Level Scheme has led to enhanced management of hedges and ditches for the benefit of the abundant wildlife on the farm. Crops currently grown on the farm include winter wheat, winter barley, oilseed rape and winter beans. Other diversification on the farm includes 6500 free range laying chickens.
The permanent pasture in the riverside meadows is managed on a low intensity system and is grazed by a small flock of Suffolk cross sheep and Red Poll cows with their offspring. The seasonal grazing supports the naturally occurring eco-systems and promotes a multitude of flora and fauna.
