Quality of our Products
We pride ourselves on the quality of our peas: our plant population and seed rate is carefully pre-determined to maximise the yield; our peas are grown on fine silt soils which allow fast drainage to prevent water logging and rotation times are optimised to minimise any soil borne diseases.
We undertake many fully traceable separate quality checks from seed selection to transportation. Peas are graded in accordance with our customers specifications, and tendarometer readings in line with Processors and Growers Research Organisation (PGRO) standardisation.
