About County Farms
Cambridgeshire's Farms Estate comprises 13,400ha and has 197 farm tenants. In England and Wales there are over 3,100 tenants on 111,000ha of local authority land. The Cambridgeshire estate is the largest.
The Estate provides significant financial returns for the council, generating £5 million in rent each year and more than £51 million has been raised through the sale of surplus property since 1993. The money raised is used to pay for council services and to keep council tax low.
The Estate is important as the first rung on the ladder for new entrants to farming and 100 new entrants have joined the Estate since 2000.
As well as financial benefits the Estate has been used to open public access to the countryside with miles of new bridleways and footpaths, to improve the landscape with new woods and hedges and to protect biodiversity and archaeology.
The County Farms estate supports many jobs in rural Cambridgeshire and provides opportunities for young people to start farming.
