Farming

Corhampton Lane Farm is 600 acres (242ha) and has been in the Hall family since 1954. There is approximately 50 acres (20ha) of woodland and the rest is in arable cropping. Our main crops are Autumn sown wheat and oilseed rape, spring sown barley and perennial rye grass. Most of the crops are grown for seed and processed into a bag for our seed merchant customers in our own seed cleaning plant.

We contract farm a further 600 acres, in similar seed cropping for neighbouring farmers. This brings the total area harvested each year to about 1150 acres (465ha). We use a John Deere combine and tractors, and a Shelbourne Reynolds stripper header for the ryegrass seed. Most cultivations are done with Kverneland and Vaderstad tools and seed drill and the crops are sprayed and fertilised with a Knight trailed sprayer.

Conservation is also a priority on the farm with some of the woodland classified as semi-natural ancient woodland. The chalk soils produce an abundance of wild flowers on the field boundaries. 10km of permissive access tracks around field edges allow walkers, cyclists, and horse riders to enjoy the beautiful countryside and views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight.
