Following news that Lodge Farm, owned by the University and farmed under contract by students of Riseholme had been put up for sale, the University has confirmed the sale of the farm is for it to remain as a working arable farm.

 

A University of Lincoln spokesman said: “We have continued to make clear our ambitions to invest heavily at our Riseholme Campus in new educational facilities to support agri-tech, science, heritage and sport.

 

Masterplan

 

"Views from the local community have been used to shape our Riseholme Masterplan which has been open for public consultation.

 

"The University is committed to supporting our county’s agriculture and food manufacturing industries through education, training and world-class research, and our Riseholme Campus remains an important part of that effort.

 

"It is important to remember that a significant investment of public money has been made to enable Bishop Burton College to relocate to its new, state-of-the-art Showground site where it continues to deliver high-quality land-based further education for the benefit of the county."

 

The University recently announced its latest agri-tech research funding awards of £2.6 million, which illustrates some of the work it is doing to support innovation in agriculture regionally and nationally.
