We have beef cattle and sheep. We grow barley which is used for beer production and animal feed, wheat for bread, fodder beet which feeds our cattle and sheep, maize and of course our pumpkins! Nothing goes to waste and each crop we grow leaves a legacy on the land to increase the fertility of soil and support our diverse farm needs.
Protecting our environment
For the better
Conservation and environmental impact is taken very seriously here at Lychpole. Sustainable farming underpins everything that we do. We have installed a borehole which supplies most of the farm’s water and planted large areas of wild flowers to attract bumble bees, declining insect populations and wild birds. There are also fallow areas which encourage rare birds, like the once almost extinct grey partridge, and wild hares. We also work closely with the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust and South Downs National Park.
