Speaker: Oliver Scott, from Bradford Estates
Over 900 years after the family’s first land grants in the area, Bradford Estates now takes responsibility for approximately 12,000 acres on the Shropshire and Staffordshire borders. We continuously invest in our land and property with the future in mind. Guided by our heritage, knowledge and a commitment to doing things the right way, we develop sustainable practices across farming, forestry and placemaking.
Oliver was brought on board to set up the in hand farming operation in February 2021. As Farm Manager, Oliver drives the strategic vision to create a market leading agri-business.
Farming estates runs in the blood, and began for Oliver in the Pewsey vale, on a farm his father managed. Initially studying Farm & Farm Management at Lackham College, Oliver continued on to study AgriFood Marketing at Harper Adams University after some local work for farms and contractors as well as a stint in Australia and New Zealand. His latest roles were at Holkham Estate and then Thelveton Estate in South Norfolk before joining Bradford Estates in 2021
