Farm management

Farmland and smallholdings within Surrey County Council's rural estate are managed by our Property Services team with economic and environmental sustainability key considerations. All these properties are currently fully let, but if you want to find out more, please contact Benjamin Whitaker by emailing or by calling him on 0208 541 8510.

Some farms which form part of the County Council's Countryside Estate have been transferred to Surrey Wildlife Trust, who are responsible for day to day management. They can be contacted on 01483 795440.

If you are a horse owner and have questions specific to horse keeping in Surrey, please see the Horse Pasture Advice web pages, which include advisory notes on topics ranging from trees and hedges to creating exercise areas. This Surrey County Council project provides online advice for horse and pony owners on practical ways to manage paddocks for maximum benefit to the animals as well as to the landscape and environment. Please note our advisory notes are not updated.
