Farming Orton Grange in the 1960s
Orton Grange Farm

The farm on which the Orton Grange complex is located is a working dairy unit of over 400 acres.
We're currently milking around 180 cows. Here you can see some of our own calves which we believe will form a good basis for our future herd. We're also pursuing an exciting new venture to further enhance the herd. We've had embryos from high quality cows and bulls implanted into some of our heifers and they've turned out well.  And we're  constantly looking for ways to improve  what we do at Orton Grange.

And we also care about the environment. We have two wind turbines and all the shops and other facilities at Orton Grange are heated by our biomass system as we try to be as green as possible.

The Martin family came to Orton Grange in 1956. At top left you can see an old Massey Ferguson ploughing at Orton Grange in the 1960s. And over the years our philosophy has been the same: to produce quality milk in a way that is as environmentally friendly as possible.

We also believe we have a responsibility to look after farm buildings which are redundant for agricultural purposes. We've been working hard on that for the several  years, as you'll be able to see elsewhere on our website.
