Moat Farm is located in and around the villages of Torworth and Barnby Moor in North Nottinghamshire, it is owned and managed by the Helliwell family who have been farming at Moat Farm since 1922 and previously in Yorkshire for many generations.

 

The farm is arable, growing a broad range of crops on our light sandy soils which we have the facility to irrigate.

We are as environmentally conscious in our farming as possible and although not organic, all of our land is managed using an environmentally friendly approach, our management opposes using any crop treatments which are not vital to eliminate pests and disease, and using as little manufactured nutrition as possible. We aim for the high quality end of the markets with crops such as Maris Otter malting barley for craft ales and whiskeys. Organic manure is used when available and our fertiliser is applied in liquid form using GPS controlled machinery for highly accurate application.

All rainwater from our building roofs is collected, filtered and used on the farm and all waste plastic, oil, steel and wood is recycled.

We are mindful of public health at all times and always apply common sense principles to our farming methods including supporting the reduction of 'food miles' and adopting green energy including a large solar array.
