The rich sandy soils of the Greensand Ridge are ideal for onion and shallot growing and we have been growing onions for 30 years on these pastures. We are passionate about supplying great tasting onions and shallots in the most sustainable way.
We pride ourselves on being environmentally friendly and take great care of the land that we farm on. All of our fields are ringed by strips of uncultivated land, which are rich in wild flora and fauna, and encourage biodiversity.
We farm over 150 acres of shallots and still, to this day, neatly sow our shallots in lines which are planted exactly 40mm apart and 20mm deep by automated tractors controlled by GPS technology.
This combination of modern and traditional technologies allows us to farm in the most effective ways, saving energy and reducing waste whilst growing quality products.
