The farmland is divided into 9 fields which can all be run together. Two of the fields have public road frontage, which effectively forms the southern boundary.
The fields are a mixture of arable, pasture and rough grazing. There is an area of woodland in the north east corner which was planted in 1993 with a mixture of Scots Pine and Hybrid Larch. This is known as Shepherd's Croft Wood and it extends to 1.14 ha.
The farm rises from 230 metres to about 290 metres above sea level. The Macaulay Institute for Soil Research have classified the land as 4(2), which means that it is suitable primarily as grassland with short arable breaks.
The contract farmer is a nearby farmer who has invested in new fences and liming etc.
