Today we farm 1,500 acres of vegetable and flower crops, some common and some less so. Our celeriac brand, 'The Ugly One' is a familiar sight in the UK market place. We're dedicated to providing customers with the very highest specification produce backed up by a total traceability system and continuity of supply.
We like to think of ourselves as a pro-active, environmentally conscious and well-invested farm business keen to take up new challenges.
We have worked hard to achieve accreditation from the following bodies, assuring our customers that the highest standards are being achieved and maintained.
Water Management Project
Jack Buck Farms have been fortunate to receive a Water Resource Management Grant. The aim of this project is to increase the available water storage capacity at Jack Buck Farms by installing a new 27,000m3 reservoir and install a new distribution main and pump house to pump the water around a 204 acre land block, so that crops can be irrigated.
We take our environmental and social responsibilities seriously. It is our policy to continually improve our farming practices and be sensitive to our environment and ecosystem.
We endeavour to farm in a sustainable, responsible and sympathetic way without jeopardising productivity. We apply a crop rotation principal throughout our farming operation. It is hugely important to provide every crop with the best possible field conditions to maximise yield and quality potential.
We are members of LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) and over the past 18 years we have planted 6,000m of hedging and 5 acres of trees which is unusual on an intensive arable marsh farm. The farm is in the environmental Entry Level Scheme where 41 acres of our land are managed for the benefit of wildlife, flora and fauna which comprises of quieter parts of the farm sown with grasses, wild bird seed mixtures and wild flowering plants rich in nectar.
We are enthusiastic in saving resources as well and we have installed photovoltaic panels to generate electricity and we have invested in the latest computer controlled coldstore equipment to reduce our electricity consumption. We are also selecting the most fuel efficient tractors and machinery to reduce our use of diesel in the fields and we are saving and reusing the water from our building roofs.
