In the 21st century, the estate maintains traditional values, yet has introduced modern methods and technology. With irrigation, one arable farm is now able to produce a wide variety of crops beyond a traditional rotation of wheat, barley, maize, oilseed rape and potatoes. Forestry is actively managed across the estate and supplies firewood for Bromesberrow Place and its residential properties. Former agricultural cottages and farm buildings have been renovated for commercial and residential tenants.
A herd of White Park cattle now graze the parkland, orchards and common ground on Chace End Hill. Aubrey’s Farm has been diversified to include a small business park, located next to junction 2 of the M50, and home to a variety of companies from construction to animal breeding, a broadband network builder to a leading supplier of motor industry performance upgrades and aluminium fabrication. Innovation has always been embraced on the estate and its businesses have been actively diversified over the past 30 years.
A dedicated team of 15 now work across the various enterprises. The Bromesberrow Estate Office is the administrative hub that supports the estate management, farming, commercial and residential rental properties, forestry, holiday lets as well as the main house and gardens.
