About Leckford Estate

Leckford Estate is a diverse commercial business, spanning property, food production and farming, retail and leisure activities.

Leckford provides a fun day out for the whole family, with shops, a nursery, cafés, a water garden, and fishing and golfing facilities. 

The Estate History

Leckford Estate was purchased as a private estate by John Spedan Lewis in 1929; a visionary retailer with extensive knowledge of botany, entomology and aquatic life.

Spedan invested into the estate heavily during his lifetime, particularly in housing, farming mechanisation, partner welfare and the environment. 

Farming at Leckford

Supplying Waitrose & Partners supermarkets and our own farm shop with Leckford produce, farming has been at the heart of the Estate since 1929.

We have been farming the 2,800-acre estate for over 90 years and are proud to be the Waitrose & Partners Farm. We are the only UK retailer owned farm producing fresh local produce.
