As a well diversified farm we grow plenty of different crops as well as having some wonderful holiday lets in the old Victorian buildings on the estate www.whiteheronproperties.com and making our delicious fruit liqueurs at www.whiteherondrinks.co.uk.
The main part of our business is chickens which are grown for the supermarkets across the UK.
We also grow a variety of other crops with our largest being blackcurrants which as well as supplying our own brand Cassis at White Heron Drinks we have also been a supplier to Ribena for over 70 years.
Our apples are sent to Bulmers and Aspalls to make their delicious ciders. We have around 60 acres of apples producing around 1400 tonnes and this is from 18840 trees.
Our arable crops are grown in a joint venture with three neighbouring farmers. This is cost-effective and means that we never need worry specifically about when we plant, or when the combine arrives as we split the returns pro-rata across all three farms.
Excitingly in 2020, we also planted 30 acres of vines which we grow under contract to British winemaking company.
