Our team control programming and crop production. By employing decision support tools such as disease forecasting models and pest trapping and inspecting crops regularly the agronomists can advise our farm on all aspects of crop production. These Integrated Crop Management (ICM) techniques provide the cultural and biological control methods that maximize quality and yields.
The crop managers inspect crops frequently and liaise with the farmer to ensure that crops are harvested in the peak of condition.
The harvesting of all crops is managed and controlled by a dedicated team of harvesting managers and operators.
Our dedicated farms assurance team works closely with our farmers to ensure strict crop production protocols are followed. These ensure crops are produced using environmentally sensitive methods whilst also guaranteeing food safety standards are maintained.
In a sector dominated by a handful of ultra-large grower-packers, one family farm in Lincolnshire is carving out a niche supplying brassica to multiple retailers and other markets, having invested heavily to increase production over the last 12 years.
P C Thorold Ltd of Gosberton, just north of Spalding is now unrecognisable from the 18 acre County Council smallholding taken on by Cecil and Jean Thorold in the 1940s. The couple began by living in a redundant tram while the first house was being built and production was typical of the many similar market gardens around Spalding at the time
We use our resources effectively to help deliver and meet our environmental targets. Integrated Farm Management helps us set our targets, monitor them and make sure we are running our farms like we want to and as we should do.
Sustainability, efficiency, profit and enjoyment are core elements of the processes we put in place.
We've built soil stores, planted acres of nectar-rich crops for bees, introduced owl boxes and planted over 800 metres of new hedging.
