The in-hand farm provides a significant amount of the agricultural business on the Estate but there are also a number of tenanted farms that have been at the heart of the Estate for many years.
The tenant farms run a wide range of agricultural businesses from a pedigree Charolais herd at Newhouse of Glamis to vodka made from potatoes at Hatton of Ogilvy Farm and the Market Garden at Plans of Thornton.
This diversity of exciting business ventures combined with traditional Angus farming practices makes the Glamis community one of the most dynamic and vibrant in Scotland. For more information have a look at the following websites:
The in-hand farming operation prides itself on a diverse approach to modern agriculture across 4,270 acres of the Estate. Crops of wheat, barley, oats and oil seed rape are harvested each year and there is a herd of commercial cattle including traditional Scottish Highland Cows and Luing cattle. As part of the Common Agricultural Policy the Estate follows all of the greening guidelines and more, with Ecological Focus Areas providing wildlife corridors around the Estate.
“I was at Glamis with a team in june, my first simulated day! We were met by our host Willy who gave a warm welcome and we spent a day shooting 5 very different and varied drives of very challenging targets in stunning scenery! Lunch in the castle was delicious and the hospitality was above and beyond!! A return visit is definately in order for next year!”
