Environmental Stewardship

Alongside growing Potatoes and arable crops we also manage the areas around the fields to provide habitats for wildlife. 


With a total area 20 times the size of Carrow Road football pitch producing nectar rich flowers and an abundance of seeds, there's plenty of food for pollinators and other insects in the summer and for farmland birds during the winter months.

 

Arable Cropping

Our potatoes are grown in an 8 year rotation with other crops to make sure the land is in good condition to grow the best quality potatoes.  Other crops in our rotation include Wheat, Oilseed Rape, Spring Beans and Sugar Beet.

Water Management

We've invested in water storage reservoirs so that we can capture water during the winter when it's in plentiful supply and use it to irrigate our crops during the drier summer months.
