NFU president Minette Batters joined 100 guests on a tour of the Longford Estate in Wiltshire. The event raised £1,295 for R.A.B.I and the Addington Fund.
Longford Estate is home to the 16th century Longford Castle and has belonged to the Earls of Radnor since 1765. Much of the land is used for arable crops, as well as grazing cattle, pigs and sheep.
The tour was organised by the Wiltshire committee and estate manager David Cantry. Four tractors with trailers took guests around the 17,000 acre estate. Members of the estate’s staff gave talks about their roles and areas of expertise, including livestock, forestry, gamekeeping, arable and fisheries.
