Law Farming covers 1,800 ha on the Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex borders over three main farms; Thrift Farm, Rectory Farm and Chrishall Grange. We also contract and share farm for others.
Arable crops cover 1,350 ha. They comprise cereals, sugar beet, forage rape, mustard for seed and stubble turnips as a catch crop on which to graze sheep. As the farming area has expanded, the policy has been to move to block cropping in order to simplify storage and field operations. Land is either farmed on a simple two year wheat/break rotation or three year wheat/barley/break rotation.
To promote soil fertility we grow a wide rotation of crops and carry a flock of 1,800 sheep. Many of our crops are grown for seed or are processed or milled locally.
In 2010, 2014 and 2016 the farm co hosted the Cereals Event and hosted the event at Chrishall Grange in 2018.
