Welcome to Abbey Farming

Abbey Farming is our family business and as a working arable farm (with over 1,000 acres), our primary business is growing food and energy crops. Alongside we open the farm for educational visits and also offer a beautiful countryside setting as a wedding reception venue.

Abbey Farm

  • The Nelstrop family home for nearly 20 years
  • Site of the remains of Kirkstead Abbey
  • The farm buildings are built, in part, from Abbey stone,
  • Buildings on the farm for nearly 900 years ( 875 years ago in 1139) when Kirkstead Abbey was “colonised” by monks from Fountains Abbey in North Yorkshire

Abbey Farm is open exclusively to private groups.  We pride ourselves on being able to share our farming knowledge, the countryside and the environment with our visitors.
