Ramsbury Estate

Ramsbury Estates is made up of 19,000 acres across North East Wiltshire, West Berkshire and North Hampshire. The diversification of the estate over the last 20 years has led to award-winning produce from the 7,000 acres of farm land – including craft ales, single estate spirits and Black Gold rapeseed oil. The Ramsbury ethos is simple, nothing goes to waste. Each operation works smoothly and efficiently, intertwining with one another either by producing complementary products or providing the raw materials used to create them. As much as can be done on the estate itself is, so that there is complete traceability and the very most out of the process as possible is achieved whilst reducing the impact on the environment surrounding us. It is this ethos that has led to the creation of conservation and educational free trips for local schools and colleges to inspire future generations.
