In 1983 The Gradidge family, who had been dairy farming for generations, moved from the Hampshire / Wiltshire borders to the Hampshire / West Sussex borders and fulfilled Grandad Gerald’s dream of becoming an arable farmer.
Michael farmed Holme Farm alongside his father Gerald for roughly 30 years. He now works with his son Chris and daughter Heather who are continuing the family business.
Situated on the Hampshire & West Sussex border and bordering Stansted Park.
Holme Farm itself is approximately 160 acres comprising of roughly:
20 acres of managed woodland
140 acres of grassland and arable/temporary grassland
50 acres is owned by the neighbouring Stansted Estate and used for hay production.
The woodland is managed for wildlife and a sustainable source of firewood.
The grassland is used for grazing of horses and sheep, along with hay production.
The farmyard is home to a DIY and part/assisted livery which is run by Heather.
We have a small holiday let ideally located for walking holidays or for accommodation when attending events at Stansted.
