We grow and handle 50,000 tonnes of sugar beet in Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire delivering to Wissington and Bury St Edmunds on contract to British Sugar. Utilising our own machinery and management expertise to maximise return, create rotation and benefit the soil.
Rectory Farm house renovations continue with a new roof, new insulation for modern living. Upgrading the house to today’s building standard from the Victorian period has meant the walls are being stripped back the floors removed for new insulation installed. Modern electrics and plumbing and the roof area and walls insulated. John and his team are busy improving all areas. The objective is for the House to be fit for purpose for the next 50 years. New windows to be installed and the garden transformed to suit the property. Modern heating will be installed last. I’m looking forward to the property starting to look better. The new roof will be a great start. Once we have the property water tight we can make a good start on the new floors and plaster .
Great job chaps, our sugar beet is lifted and the fields have been drilled with Wheat behind.
Enjoy your well earned Christmas break and see you in the new year.
Making use of the frost to keep the machinery moving and running clean. The beet harvester is lifting the sugar beet in clean conditions and the cultivator and drill is following up behind making a beautiful job. The boys are collecting the sugar beet as it’s lifted and delivering to the factory. Great job team.
