About Snettisham Park FarmSnettisham Park , incorporating Park Farm, first opened to the public in 1986, and is a working Norfolk farm growing Wheat for animal feed, Malting Barley, Sugar Beet and Grass, grazed by our 400 ewe flock, our herd of red deer, and horses and ponies from our stables.
Through the year we interpret the farm to our visitors during the different seasons, enabling them to see lambs and deer calves being born, crops being sown and harvested, and enjoy the countryside and wildlife in our beautiful part of West Norfolk.
Crop informationDuring 2014 our Maris Otter winter barley yielded 2.2 tonnes/acre. This was destined for the maltings at Great Rybrough and then on to some of the smaller breweries like Woodfordes and Greene King to produce their excellent Wherry.
We successfully harvested our Barley for 2014. This crop yields about 6.8 tonnes/Ha (2.75T/acre).
The straw on this field was left in the swath and was baled up to be used for bedding for the calves and sheep.
Our Wheat yielded around 8.6 tonnes/Ha (3.5 T/acre).
