East Coast Growers Ltd
East Coast Growers farm 400ha over a 20 mile radius around the Norfolk Broads near Martham (10 miles from Great Yarmouth) and on the black Fens in the Feltwell area of Norfolk.
Utilising the Grade 1 silts available to us, we grow a range of baby leaves, Iceberg, Cos and Gem lettuces, Chinese leaf, celery, radish and a range of organic salads from May through to the end of October.
Our coastal climate provides an ideal environment in which to grow salad crops in the middle of the summer and enables us to extend the growing season through into November with a reduced frost risk.
Radish is grown on the black soils surrounding the Feltwell Site, with production beginning as early as mid-April through to the end of October. Because of its quick growing cycle, up to four crops per field can be achieved over the season. A mixture of standard red, purple and French Breakfast radish are grown for both the pre-pack and bunched radish market.
The farm is a member of LEAF and is also accredited to Gold standard Tesco Nurture, Field to Fork, Assured Produce and BRC.
We work closely with our Landlords to enhance and protect the environment within which we farm, and this includes protection of ELS features, hedgerows and wildlife habitats.
The farm also plays an active role in hosting local school visits and contributing to The Open Farm Sunday initiative.
