County farms and smallholdings

The County Farms and Smallholdings estate holds a significant presence in Warwickshire’s rural communities, extending to over 2,000 hectares (5,000 acres), including forty-eight fully equipped farms. The County offers a range of part-time starter holdings, progression holdings, full-time farms, and other properties ancillary to the estate. It provides support to new entrants in the Warwickshire tenant farming sector by offering a foothold on the farming ladder, and providing an opportunity for people without significant resources to become tenants of farms and smallholdings to start careers in agriculture, horticulture and rural enterprises. The County Farms estate supports many jobs in rural Warwickshire and provides opportunities for young people to start farming.
