Since the original 400-acre Plumpton College farm was bought back in 1919, Plumpton College has certainly seen a lot of changes. Now farming around 2,500 acres in conjunction with several landlords, our outstanding estate has grown to become one of the leading centers for land-based education in the UK.
We now have a dairy herd of 260 cows, 1,000 sheep, and 130 sows, in addition to up to 65 horses and a wide range of animals and livestock in our excellent animal care center. On the horticultural side, our site has been developed to include greenhouses and our excellent practical workshop facilities. One of our most recent exciting additions has been our superb commercial winery – enabling you to study unique courses in first-class facilities.
