The Royal Agricultural University is set in the heart of the Cotswold countryside and is recognised nationally and internationally as a leader in the delivery of education, research and consultancy in agriculture and the rural environment.
The University has farms based in two locations in close proximity to the University campus. Coates Manor Farm and Harnhill Manor Farm total 491 hectares in size, and offer very different farming system situations. These enterprises are run on a commercial basis. In addition, the University has access to dairy facilities at Kemble Farm and Leaze Farm. For more information click here.
The mix of enterprise across the farms includes sheep, outdoor pigs, horses and arable. These farms provide a field laboratory for students and staff and are a focus for research.
The farms have joined the Higher Level Stewardship Scheme and are committed to enhancing the environmental value of their holdings. Research and demonstration projects, often involving outside funding and other external organisations, are a continual part of our farms' business and educational programme.
