About STRUTT & PARKER ( FARMS LTD)
Today the business manages some 20,000 acres of farmland across 5 farms. Our farms grow a wide range of crops including wheat, sugar beet, oilseed rape, potatoes, linseed, oats, barley, lucerne and rye. In addition, through joint venture activities, we are involved in farming land near Ramsey in Cambs, and managing sheep in Norfolk. While supplying all markets, our focus has been to cultivate premium crops predominantly for human consumption. Hence continued investment in our business has enabled us to grow crops to a very high standard, meeting the requirements set by the UK food manufacturers.
We have a strong commitment to our local community and environment. Not only do we provide employment for 85 employees, of which 34 are full time, we have invested heavily in converting redundant farm buildings to provide industry and employment to other sectors of the rural community. We have also stimulated rural tourism by constructing holiday cottages.
In making a commitment to the environment, we are strong supporters of national country stewardship schemes (ELS/HLS). Agriculture is very vulnerable to climate change, and we believe in a strong future whereby farmers are well placed to implement sustainable agricultural practices that help adapt to and mitigate climate change while benefitting rural and urban populations. We already grow crops (such as wheat and sugar beet) that can be processed into biodiesel and replace the need for fossil fuels.
S&P Farms provides housing for around 125 families in the vicinity of our farms.
