At present, the land is farmed as one unit.

However, due to the location and distribution of the farmhouses and buildings, the land could be farmed as a number of stand-alone units.

The land extends to approximately 366.03 hectares (882.54 acres) and enjoys good access from the public road network.
The current farming system is based on the fattening of cattle and growing of cereals, which are crimped and fed to the cattle.

In addition, some 1,400 ewe hoggs are over wintered.
