A Whole Farm Approach

All crops are hand harvested daily for maximum freshness, delivered to the London wholesale markets that night and at the restaurants' kitchen the following morning.  Crops are grown in beds which are cultivated using a spader machine rather than a plough to preserve soil structure.  Careful rotation help maintain soil health and prevent build-up of pests and diseases.  Much precision is required in the planning to balance harvesting, growing and rotational requirements.  Regular nutrient testing is another example where attention to detail pays dividends, ensuring the correct use and placement of nitrogen fertilisers.
Disease and pest control is essential for quality so crops are walked and checked regularly by qualified consultants.  New technology is carefully incorporated to ensure that all resources - energy, water, nutrients and plant protection products are used only when needed.  Such developments include trickle tape irrigation, GPS soil mapping and band spraying.
