WELCOME TO THE FARM

The Arable side of the business produces Winter Wheat, Spring Wheat, Oil Seed Rape, Beans, Barley and Sugar Beet. The cereals are all sold through merchants for Animal feed/Milling and the Sugar Beet is grown on contract for British Sugar to be turned into Silver Spoon sugar. Potatoes have been grown continuously on the farm up until 2021 when the decision was taken to cease production for other business interests. The potato area is now let to a neighboring grower so the crop rotation benefits of potatoes are still available.
