About E.C Drummond

About E.C Drummond

 

The Drummond family have been farming in Herefordshire Since 1956. Eric Drummond senior, who had previously farmed in Scotland, came to The Homme in Ross-on-Wye with its 90 hectare’s of mixed farming which included potatoes, cereal crops and blackcurrants whilst also rearing sheep and cattle.

Over the last 50 years the business has continued to grow, to what it is today. Whilst some of the crops have changed we are still based at the same farm and a family business.

Today the business is based around Poultry Production, Soft Fruit Growing, Arable and Potato Enterprises.

Protecting our countryside

The countryside in which the various divisions of E.C Drummond farm and operate is important to Eric and his family, especially Homme farm in Ross-on-Wye which is also the Drummond family’s home. The family is sensitive to the impact that the business operations have on the surrounding landscape and are therefore passionate about rural conservation, environmental and wildlife protection issues which play a major part in the company’s strategic and tactical business decision planning processes. A number of farms managed by E C Drummond are in ELS or HLS agreements.

The business ‘Its a family thing’

E.C Drummond is at its heart, and always has been, a family business. Two of Eric’s sons, Ben and Sam are now back on the farm. Today, Eric, Ben and Sam manage and oversee the partnership’s day to day operations and, together with a dedicated management team, continue to take the business from strength to strength.
