We grow potatoes (for crisps), wheat (for biscuits & bread), barley (for whiskey) and oil seed rape (for rapeseed oil, fuel and animal feed). The majority of the farming on the Estate is conducted “in hand” by our own team of skilled agricultural workers.
The Estate is managed as environmentally sensitive as possible whilst running a commercial farming operation. Bee & bird friendly set-aside strips of wild flowers and brassicas are planted. Two kilometres of new native hedging have recently been completed. The Estate aims to begin a significant broadleaf woodland planting programme in 2020.
We were pleased to be chosen as KP Food’s Potato Grower of the Year in 2019. The Estate was No.1 out of over 50 other growers in the UK.
