A.W Jenkinson Farms
- A.W Jenkinson Farms
Located within the Eden Valley, the A.W. Jenkinson Farms set benchmark standards in bovine genetics, cattle, sheep and arable productivity.
Throughout the holdings, the policy is one of continued improvement of land, livestock and facilities, tempered by a recognition that A.W. Jenkinson Farms are stewards of the land. The farm comprises six formerly separate holdings now operated as a single, efficient unit.
Activities on the Farm are centred on bovine genetics and breeding cattle, as well as sheep, arable and shooting land. The Limousin breeding herd comprises females which calve down to the Farm’s high quality pedigree stock bulls. The Farm also holds around 2,500 ewes; these Texel/North Country Mule crosses produce in excess of 4,000 lambs per year.
The A.W. Jenkinson Farms arable land contributes almost the entire feed requirements of the Farm, as well as providing a marketable surplus. The Farm is entirely self-financed from within the Group. A high degree of investment in the latest machinery and farming innovations help drive maximum yield, whilst keeping use of agrochemicals to a cost-efficient, environmentally responsible minimum.
