People who want to grow their own fruit and vegetables but cannot afford to buy land are being offered the chance to become part time farmers by the National Trust under a “super allotments” scheme running at stately homes and other Trust properties.

Venues for the new organic farms so far include Killerton estate in Devon, where livestock such as chickens and cattle are also offered, Hatchlands Park near Guildford and the Wimpole estate in Cambridgeshire.
