Passion, Respect & Excellence
We believe our family run, farming focussed business has prospered over the last 80 years as a direct result of these three watchwords that stand as pillars of our operation and that help set us apart. It’s our relentless drive for passion, respect and excellence that has allowed us and the generations before us to grow and flourish into the business we are today.
As part of the Mercer Farming Group we share our values across all of our commercial and charitable endeavours.
Protecting our Land
We continuously strive to improve our soil; growing a wide selection of crops, to give a balanced rotation to the farm, and utilising the manure from our animals as a natural fertiliser to reduce the need for synthetic fertiliser.
Respecting our Animals
Our animals enjoy the best possible welfare. We ensure access to lots of space, both inside and outside, which helps them express natural behaviours and to live happy and contented lives.
By planting grass margins and field corners with wild bird seed, pollen and nectar mixes, we actively encourage a wider diversity of plants, insects, birds and mammals across the farm. We plant new hedges and manage existing ones to help protect the wildlife around us, throughout the year.
Supporting our Communities
We are focussed on successfully growing our family business and committed to making a positive impact on the communities where we live and work. Not only through what we produce but what we give back through our charitable activities.
Improving our Climate
We actively plan for carbon sequestration across our woodlands, grasslands and soil. And we endeavour to waste nothing, from the wheat we grow being incorporated into our animals’ diet, and the straw we use to bed them up.
