Bath Monitor Farm

Rob Addicott header

Rob Addicott is a Duchy of Cornwall tenant farming 478ha in Somerset, divided between his home farm, shared land with a neighbour, and contracted land. The farm grows winter wheat, barley and OSR for feed, as well as beans for human consumption, on a six-year rotation and shares all of his machinery with a neighbour. Rob manages an on-farm office complex together with his father, and also belongs to a benchmarking group in Somerset. Topics for discussion include reviewing the machinery complement in the light of the mix of soils types and managing the soil.
