Study Tour to Euston Estate, Norfolk.
Associate member Andrew Blenkiron hosted a wonderful day visit to The Euston Estate where he is Estate’s Director. After coffee in the House, Andrew took us on an extensive tour of the 6,200 acre estate where as well as the AD Unit we saw the in-hand farming growing cereals, sugar beet and a wide range of vegetable crops inconjunction with a local grower/packer. Irrigation of the very light land areas is key and since arriving five years ago, Andrew has doubled the quantity of water storage by designing and obtaining planning for new reservoirs. Also responsible for 1500acres woodland.
