East Suffolk Produce Seed

Our seed business is comprised of James Foskett Farms, Home Farm Nacton and Greenwell Farms who are producing 200 Ha’s of certified seed between them. The seed growing area in East Suffolk allows us to specialise in producing aged seed that will emerge faster producing a commercial advantage for the customer in the following ware crop.

We are advocates of selling by the re-plantable hectare which will give you the exact amount of seed to fit your field and work with you to tailor the seed rate for your market requirements.

We also work with other trusted partners to ensure we can provide all the seed varieties that our customers require.

All own grown stocks are virus tested post burn down by NIAB-CUF and we have now started growing on selected seed stocks under glass and can show customers their stock to give extra reassurance that stocks are growing normally.

Our current varieties are as follows:

Chipping: Agria, Sagitta, Miranda, Maris Piper
Ware: Marfona, Estima, Desiree, Maris Piper, King Edward
Salads: Maris Peer, Charlotte, Baby Lou, Belana

Other varieties can be grown on request, please speak to Charlie Trembath or James Wrinch on 01394 420512

We can also provide just in time delivery of our own grown stocks which is of benefit to growers who do not have their own seed storage.
