A long but productive day on the farm. Our team did a great job as always!
Liquid fertiliser and Sky News
We’ve been collecting liquid fertiliser from Great Yarmouth. Sky News were filming so Andy has been caught on camera….again.
Busy busy day for Tom
Tom’s been to check the water is now moving – he’s delighted! Not a bad job in the warm of January. Thanks, Tom for your hard work, you did a brilliant job!
Improvements for The Irwin Centre
As we want to provide a great experience for both our employees and visitors arriving at the farm, we decided on some updates. New hedges and trees are being planted on the new Irwin Centre drive. The view will be amazing, especially over spring and summer. We are also working on our new car park and now the tarmac is being laid. Huge thanks to all of you involved in these works.

Crane sighting at Scotland Farm – never a dull day
Bearing gone on the main elevator at Scotland Farm today. Not to worry, the team are on the case with a big crane!
Our dusty mustard harvest is now complete
It’s been a dusty mustard harvest but today it’s now complete. Think of us when you are eating your next Coleman’s mustard serving and enjoy knowing where your food comes from. Our Managing Director James took this footage live from the field just before we finished…

Great feedback on our open day from NFU members
What a fantastic day we had on Monday 24th June, welcoming around 140 people from the Cambridge branch of the NFU (National Farmers Union) to Scotland Farm.
We’d invited the NFU members to come along and learn about the forward-thinking and innovative sustainable farming methods we use at P.X. Farms, and there was particular interest in our use of CTF (controlled traffic farming), the grain storage operation and our investment in state-of-the-art new equipment.
We had some great feedback on the day and afterwards, like these fantastic comments on Twitter:
I’ve had a fantastic and informative tour and talk from the @Pxfarms @PXFarmsHaulage team. Certainly the highest attention to detail and most forward thinking agribusiness I’ve ever visited. pic.twitter.com/K0MvYdcrAL

Thanks @Pxfarms for a very interesting and informative evening . Looking around your grain storage operation and hearing how you make your control traffic farming work. pic.twitter.com/swM3EU1Qwk

It’s always great to be able to share our passion for embracing new ways of farming, and we look forward to hosting similar events in the future.
Drilling white mustard for Coleman’s in Lincolnshire. Last block to drill. Hoping the weather stays with us this week. Plenty of moisture to get it away. When the sun is out it’s a pleasure being in the fields.
Cultivating in front of the beet drill
The conditions are wonderful this year for cultivating and drilling sugar beet. I’ve never known a spring like this in the beginning of March. I’m cultivating in front and simon is drilling sugar beet behind. We completed 80 ha (200 acres) yesterday. Very satisfying day. The sun came out. Wet today so tomorrow looks to be better.
