Burtley Farm comprises of 2,000 acres of land in Buckinghamshire. It is an organic beef farm at heart, but is also has a large forestry business, and a number of residential and commercial properties to let.
The Portman Burtley Farm is based in South Buckinghamshire and is home to a breeding herd of 200 cows expertly managed by Richard, the farm manager. Each cow produces one calf a year in the Spring. The calves stay with their mothers until they are nine months old, growing naturally on their rich milk followed by the organic pastures.
The farm is also home to 60 breeding ewes which extensively graze the grassland.
In addition, a small acreage of organic cereal crops are grown each year to provide a nutritious feed source to the cattle.
Burtley Farm has been in the Portman family for over 70 years, and we are extremely proud of the land and the cattle that the Farm team looks after. If you would like to visit the farm, or are interested in buying either cattle or beef please get in touch with us.
Burtley Farm has been an organic farm since 2005. Organic farming relies upon more natural forms of farming such as cultural pest control and and diverse crop rotation.
