Of the areas (approx. 316 ha) of the Hessian State Domain Frankenhausen, with an average soil score of 60 (range: 38-87 soil points), 207 ha of the total farm area are currently cultivated by the farm as arable land and 39 ha as grassland. More than 40 ha are exclusively available for field trials and another 24 ha are used as flowering and nature conservation areas for biotope networking.

The farm has extensive building capacities, which have been listed since summer 1998.

Since 1998 a dairy herd with about 100 cows of the endangered dual purpose breed "Deutsches Schwarzbuntes Niederungsrind" has been established on the domain. All the female offspring remain on the farm to supplement the herd or for fattening. Currently, four bulls complete the cattle herd.
In 2010, an old building was converted into a winter layer house for 700 laying hens. In summer, the chickens live in a self-developed mobile coop on arable forage land.
