Hurleyford Farm has been in the Burfitt family for over 90 years. Chris Burfitt moved to Hurley in 1926 and bought the farm when the Danesfield and Medmenham Estates were split up. In those days it consisted of 120 acres of grass mainly for dairying. Over the years the farm was gradually expanded by the future generations of the family until it reached approx 500 acres which are made up of arable and grass producing wheat, barley, oats, beans, sheep and cattle.
Throughout the summer cattle and sheep can be seen in the fields surrounding Hurley village and at Easter and again in the autumn baby lambs can also be seen gambolling about. We also have a small suckler herd producing young calves for fattening. A further 180 calves are bought in for rearing to beef throughout the year.
