Arable

Acres of quality

Our arable crops grow in a wide range of soil types from sandy loams to heavy clay spread over our land in Herefordshire and Worcestershire.  This variety enables us to grow a range of crops that includes wheat, barley, oil seed rape, and spring beans.  We are constantly trying to improve soil structure with the aid of cover cropping and rotations.

We have embraced the Countryside Stewardship and SFI schemes by planting bird and bee friendly flower mixes in more marginal soil types. We have also grassed down headlands adjacent to rivers and brooks and taken some field corners out of production to create corridors which enable wildlife to move across the countryside with greater ease.

We combine traditional methods with the cutting edge and have embraced technology in all our arable farming operations.  It has helped to increase yields and reduced the use of fertilisers.  Our John Deere tractor have GPS guidance installed which has reduced overlaps, gaps and soil compaction.

In running a successful commercial arable enterprise, our aim is to produce food in a responsible and sustainable way to benefit the health and wellbeing of both people and nature.
