The farmland at Woodhead sits at an altitude of approximately 140 – 150 metres above average sea level. The land is classified by the James Hutton Institute as predominantly Class 3.2, this indicates the land is capable of producing a moderate range of crops including high yields of barley, oats and grass. Other uses may include potatoes and forage crops. This classification is typical of the area.
Fields 3 and 4 are currently in permanent grass with hay cut during the summer months and sheep seasonally grazing it during the winter months, these two fields would also be capable of being cropped. The fences at Fields 3 and 4 are stockproof. Water is accessible in all of the fields. The land is gently sloping and easily worked.

Woodhead Farm was originally part of Monymusk Estate and Sir Arthur Grant rebuilt the farmhouse for his wife in a style in keeping with her native Cotswolds in 1889. Infact it is believed that it was a prototype for the design used in rebuilding the estate’s model village of Monymusk.
