About Brigg Monitor Farm

  • Gander Farms has been a monitor farm since June 2017
  • Total farm area: 615 ha combinable crops and 32 ha permanent pasture. 
  • Arable rotation is normally peas or oilseed rape, followed by either spring wheat or maize

Colin Chappell farms with his family at Gander Farm near Brigg, Lincolnshire. The lowland mixed arable and beef unit has 615 ha combinable crops and 32 ha permanent pasture. Colin’s arable rotation is normally peas or oilseed rape, followed by two wheats. 

He recently replaced his second wheats either with spring wheat due to black-grass pressure, or maize on lighter land for a local AD plant.

During the three years of the programme Colin hopes to look at succession, joint venture farming and how his farm can survive in a post-EU Britain.
