At Grosvenor Farms we produce high-quality, nutritious, milk and cereal grains, adopting sustainable practices that benefit animal welfare and enhance the environment.
From our award-winning commercial farm within Grosvenor’s Eaton Estate in Cheshire, we produce over 35 million litres of fresh milk a year – enough for half a million people every day – and grow 2,200 hectares of forage and grains for food production and animal feed.
Our ambition is to be the UK’s leading producer of milk and cereal grains, farming sustainably to become a net zero carbon operation by 2030, building on our average 30% carbon reduction achieved in our dairy activities since 2014.
We aim to produce foods which enhance human health, adopting approaches that can help improve the environment (we manage approximately 12% of our land to support greater biodiversity and restore natural habitats) and which advance a fair and resilient food system so that better solutions can endure. We believe that doing so will enable our activities to deliver lasting commercial and social benefit, contributing to the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of our local communities and beyond.
We are part of Wheatsheaf Group, Grosvenor’s international investment arm in food and agriculture which enables us to access innovative technologies and knowledge to help us operate at the forefront of our industry.
As part of Grosvenor, we share in the heritage of an organisation which has been involved in farming and agriculture on the Eaton Estate – home to the Duke of Westminster, since the 1400s.
Informed by the latest scientific research and technologies, we have continued this tradition, developing an award winning and commercially successful farm which is improving efficiency and productivity in UK agriculture without compromising food safety, animal welfare and environmental best practice.
We are a values-led business where integrity, respect and trust underpin everything we do as we strive to uphold the highest standards of conduct in all our operations.
