GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY
The ultimate agritech start-up combination of collaborative working space & workshop facilities with access to 491 hectares of farmland right on your doorstep.
HARNHILL MANOR FARM
With 491 hectares (1,200 acres) of managed farming systems including conventional and organic, Harnhill Manor Farm offers members the opportunity to conduct their own research and access existing physical and financial data.
This forms a vast field laboratory where businesses can scale up, undertake research and test products. Several projects are currently being undertaken on the topic of reduced cultivation and improvements in soil organic matter and fertility by growing a number of alternative crop species.
