Acton House Farm is run by John Best and his family, it is an arable and beef farm and is 480 hectares in total.
The farm has been in the Best family for four generations, since John’s great Grandfather bought it in 1921. At that time it was primarily a pig and beef farm. Today, John and Simon (father and son) and three farm labourers run the farm. Over the years, there have been various breeds of beef cattle and sheep on the farm and we’ve grown various crops including linseed, lupins, rye and potatoes. John and Simon now focus on wheat, oats, oil seed rape and feed beans and have 50 Aberdeen Angus cattle and a green waste recycling system which uses municipal green waste to produce compost for use on our own land.
