We grow 175 acres of sugar beet, producing around 5,000 tonnes annually.​


'Beta vulgaris' is a crop commercially grown for the production of sugar.


The sugar is produced via photosynthesis in the leafs, and stored in the conical, white fleshy root.


Although around 75% of the root is water, the sugar is contained within the dry matter.


Good quality beet contains a sugar content of around 20% of it's total mass.​


Drilling takes place in early spring, with harvest between September and December.


​We currently grow the following varieties; Hornet, Haydn and SY Muse.
