West Sussex Herb Production

Innovative use of agronomic technology

Using the natural benefits of the locations & the different climatic zones, our professional farming team employ technology in innovative ways in conjunction with sound agronomic principles to challenge yield norms whilst going above and beyond customer expectations.

Creating an ideal climate at our farming locations

Our chosen farming locations create an ideal climate for the production of fresh produce in a sustainable rotation. The mix of high light levels and soil types, from water retentive brick earths to free draining loamy sands, gives us flexibility of establishment windows to ensure consistency of supply. We are able to farm a range of culinary herbs in both UK & Spain which has three different climatic zones, therefore giving us the choice to plant what we want, and when we need it.

Developing sustainable growing systems

We have invested in a large number of projects and facilities to protect and enhance our estate.

We aim to bring sustainable growing systems with a long term view of the land.

We use compost, cover cropping, crop rotation, reduced tillage, reed beds for filtering waste water and reservoirs to store and recycle water which is then used for irrigation & wild flower mixes for local pollinators.
