Winchester Monitor Farm

Andy Bason And Ian Cammack _header

Ian Cammack together with his foreman Andy Bason runs a 722 ha arable farm on chalk downland near Winchester. The farm has 550 ha of combinable crops – wheat, barley, oilseed rape and beans, as well as keeping 70 breeding ewes producing Hampshire Downs cross lambs to sell to a local butcher. The farm receives rental income from ex dairy and piggery buildings converted to offices, a gym, storage and workshops. With woodchip boilers recently installed, Ian will soon be doing more woodland management than before. Off-farm work includes agricultural and non-agricultural maintenance.
