Kingston Maurward Farm
Kingston Maurward Farm provides a valuable teaching resource for our various land-based courses whilst also running as a commercial mixed farming operation, providing financial returns to the college.
The Farm is fully farm assured for the dairy, crops (ACCS), beef and sheep (FABBL) managed by SAl Global, which qualifies us to use the Red Tractor Logo on our produce.
