Glebe House Estate is a family run business located in Godstone, Surrey, committed to providing high quality local produce whilst helping to preserve 2 particular rare breeds through a tailored breeding programme.

Our resident sows are Doris, Pickles and Ursula and we have experienced a number of successful litters to date as part of the breeding programme.

Fun fact – HRH The Princess Royal is Patron of the Gloucestershire Old Spots Pig Breeders’ Club.

Our Dexter programme currently comprises 3 cows, Hepzibar, Hermione and Gracie and their respective calves. They are registered to provide beef and enjoy a life of leisure with plenty of space to graze. We also have a bull, whose name is Mr Plum.

Fun fact – All cows require a passport which is unique to the UK.

Continuing our dedication to help preserve threatened species we also have 6 hives housing over 200,000 bees which produce honey of varying colour, texture and flavour depending on the season. Bees are great for the pollination of plants and vegetables, and the local source of honey can also benefit hay fever sufferers.

Fun Fact – A bees wing beats 190 times per second, that’s 11,400 times per minute.

Now onto the question that has plagued mankind for centuries: which came first, the chicken or the egg? Well in our case it was the chickens and they have proved a wonderful success with their efficient production of free-range eggs. Their noisy neighbours and competitors are our ducks which also produce delicious free-range eggs. Which are better? That is for you to decide. However, we can tell you first hand that in terms of noise our cockerel is the undisputed winner, which never fails to rouse the household at 4.30 in the morning!
We have also started a woodland conservation and development programme to encourage local wildlife wherein all fallen trees are cleared for the sale of logs. They are replaced with fresh saplings which will flourish in years to come. Trees currently being planted include hazel, willow and chestnut.
The cottage garden has been restored and seasonal vegetables will be available.

Christmas trees are also being grown for future sale.

We are now offering Hog Roasts and BBQs for small private parties and Weddings. We can cater for up to 150 people with options of our homemade Dexter beef burgers, homemade sausages as well as beef stews. All meat comes from our free range rare breed Dexter cattle and Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs bred and reared here in Godstone, Surrey.
