What is Sullington Manor Farm?

Sullington Manor Farm is a traditional working beef and arable farm in South Downs National Park, West Sussex and we seek to share its resources for others to enjoy.

In order to improve the future resilience of our business and give the ancient buildings of the former farmyard a new lease of life we have diversified into hospitality and tourism – so more people can enjoy the beautiful Downland farm.

Sullington Manor Farm Ltd consists of 7.5 acres of ancient woodland, 142 acres of ancient uncultivated pasture, 75 acres is farmed as wheat, 56 acres of improved pasture and 206 acres of permanent grassland. The mixed farm has 250 grass-fed cattle. Our herd are cross breeds between Sussex, Simmental and Aberdeen Angus. Ours is a closed herd which means that calves are born here and many stay on the farm all their lives.

On the farm, we are engaged with multiple conservation schemes including High Level Stewardship and work with South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA) to manage our native flora and fauna correctly.

Our cattle on Sullington Manor Farm are grass fed, all year round. All the grass they are fed on whether fresh pasture, silage or hay is grown on the farm.

The cattle in our closed herd are cross breeds between Sussex, Simmental and Aberdeen Angus. Many stay on the farm all their lives.

Grass-fed meat is slow grown, in harmony with nature – the traditional way. Food miles – nil. The cattle hardly need to see a vet, they are hardy and content. Much research has been done on the far-reaching benefits to human health of pasture-fed meat which is high in levels of vitamins, nutrients and fatty acids which protect against heart disease and helps brain function.
