We lease land on our four rural estates for the purpose of farming. Our farming tenancies total approximately 30,000 hectares.

After a lease is agreed, we continue to work with our tenants to improve productivity in their farming businesses, while enhancing biodiversity in the area.

Our success relies on partnership working and a strong landlord-tenant relationship.

How we contribute

Our business:

  • Supports tenant farmers (with tenancies ) to strengthen, grow and diversify their businesses
  • Invests to repair and improve farm buildings and infrastructure
  • Helps young farmers get a foot on the farming ladder by encouraging new entrants and next generation tenants
  • Collaborates with Moredun Research Institute to improve farms biosecurity and promote understanding of livestock diseases and animal welfare
