Farming

Packington Estate is made up of a number of different farms some of which are let and others which are managed and farmed in-hand. Historically the Estate had a diverse range of farming enterprises to include dairy herds and pig farms. Today the majority of the land is set for arable production, however there are still extensive areas of grassland that support beef and sheep farming.

At the heart of the Estate sits Packington Hall and Deer Park. The Deer Park is the home to some c.300 black fallow which roam the park freely and whilst enclosed are considered a wild herd.

The majority of the Estate is under ‘Countryside Stewardship’ which ensures that whilst the farms are managed commercially they are managed sensitively to ensure that wildlife habitats are created and enhanced that ensures that our valuable flora and fauna is able to flourish.
