We have 2 bases for our arable farming operation, Homme Farm, Ross on Wye and also Wootton St Lawrence in Hampshire.

Homme Farm

We grow arable crops across approx. 1000ha. This includes our own farm and various others that we manage or rent under differing agreements. The main crop within this is Potatoes and we specialise in growing chipping verities either on contract for the major processors or through other outlets for the chip shop trade.
We also grow other combinable crops like Wheat, Barley, and Oilseed Rape. The arable farm also undertakes the establishment tasks for the soft fruit enterprises.
