Rural business opportunities

Cambridgeshire County Council’s Farms Estate extends to over 33,000 acres of farmland across the county and has more than 160 tenants. The Estate is the largest public sector estate in England and Wales.

The Estate provides a means of entry into farming as well as opportunities for existing rural businesses on the Estate to grow and expand. Alongside this, the Estate offers its tenants an increasingly rare opportunity to develop their career in farming. The farms and other businesses add to the diversity of rural communities in Cambridgeshire, help improve social wellbeing by allowing public access to open spaces, as well as contributing to the local economy.
