Our rural arable & beef farm in beautiful Cambridgeshire


Our arable and beef farm has been producing the best of British crops and beef for four generations. William Warrener first came to Holly Lodge in 1948 and since then the farm has been run as a family partnership, moving down through 4 generations until most recently William’s Great Grand-daughter Emily joined the business. Holly Lodge Farm is split across four separated areas of land surrounding the main farm just outside Upton, Huntingdon.


Holly Lodge farm has traditionally grown a rotation of Winter Wheat, Oilseed Rape and Barley. However, recently we have explored different arable rotations including Oats and Beans. We are constantly evaluating our farming practices to keep up to date with our ever-changing industry. The future looks bright with a big focus on how we can farm in a more environmentally friendly way. Farming in an environmentally friendly manner is very important to all of us at Holly Lodge and the farm is already a part of management schemes that incorporate areas for wildlife to thrive. We want to drive our environmental focus forward over the coming years so we can farm at Holly Lodge for another 4 generations! Keep an eye on this page and our blog posts to find out more.


Geoff (third generation of the Warrener family) has a passion for his cattle and has produced top quality British and Continental breeds at Holly Lodge for over 30 years. Our cattle are fed on homegrown silage, British potatoes, and homegrown milled wheat whilst they are in their cosy yards over winter, and once out to grass in the summer months they graze on ancient pastures. Once fattened Geoff’s cattle are sold to retailers such as Morrison’s and Waitrose. We pride ourselves on producing happy cattle that have a great quality of life and first-class husbandry, as we believe that this provides our customers with the best quality end produce.

“Always happy to pop in to grab a coffee, cake and even ice cream especially made for my (any) dog. Always very friendly. frequently busy, though not too busy to always find time for a quick chat. Very popular with dog owners with their attached dog fields and fly ball competitions, along with cyclists and walkers.”
