A diverse farming business and property portfolio
The Farm at Bosbury and Millend Farm at Castle Frome are located to the north of the market town of Ledbury and to the west of the Malvern Hills.
Manor Farm is located over the border in Worcestershire. It is situated alongside the River Teme and the River Severn to the south of Worcester in the historic village of Powick, the site of the English Civil War’s Battle of Worcester.
At the heart of the community
Hawkins Estate employs many full time local people plus seasonal staff during peak times. Our impact in the local community and economy goes much further through our long standing relationships with trusted partners – tradesmen, suppliers and technical consultants; from agronomists to architects and contractor to builders merchants.
The Estate is committed to the sustainability of the communities that occupy and surround the estate. We work with local schools and colleges oﬀering apprenticeships and work experience for young people.
All of our people share a common purpose and respect for the land which provides our living. We are all only too aware of the natural beauty of the countryside in which we work and strive to ensure that we work the land sustainably and sensitively, enhancing both biodiversity and landscape where we can.
The estate is home to families living in properties which date back to the 16th century. Other buildings include recent high-quality conversions carried out by the estate to create much-needed decent rural housing, ensuring that the area and its community remains sustainable for generations to come.
Long term sustainability
Whilst tending our rolling orchards and distinctive hop fields, raising our pedigree Bosbury Hereford cattle, and maintaining and enhancing our historic rural properties, respect for the land is always at the heart of it.
As custodians of this wonderful landscape, we aim to build upon its secure foundations and prepare it for the benefit of the next generation and all those who follow on after.
