We have expanded our fruit growing business with the acquisition of eight new farms in Medway and Swale and the East Kent cold storage facility in Faversham. We now farm over 2,650 acres of orchards growing 12 varieties of apples and three varieties of pears.
Ross Goatham, Managing Director comments: “We have taken the opportunity to acquire several new sites which came onto the market this year and which are close to our existing farm sites. Over the last year, we have seen a significant interest from British consumers for British grown top fruit. We are continuously working with our partner growers and customers towards providing a secure and sustainable supply for the future. This will be done by securing more orchard sites and over time replanting on new and more efficient growing systems. By 2020 we will have planted in excess of 2 million new fruit trees.”
