Seed crop production

Seed crops are field grown, in the open, using specialist machinery and drawing on years of experience. Each species requires a different approach to growing and harvest, and at present we grow up to 200 species on over 150 acres, divided between Limes Farm in Norfolk and Manor Farm at Bath.

Harvesting of the crop is by hand, purpose built machines, or by combine harvesters, and the seed is then dried and cleaned using seed cleaning machinery.
