It's been a challenging few years to say the least. Like many others, we've been extremely busy exploring the unknown, adapting to re-written principles of growing and overcoming uncertainty.
Having had time to process and reflect upon the various changes implemented on site, we're delighted to be able to share our carbon emissions for 2022, where we managed to achieve and deliver sustainably grown premium tomatoes for our customers.
Green energy has played a key role in our transition away from the use of fossil fuels and is used to support and nurture our heat intensive crops. The majority of our electricity requirements are also met by renewable means.
📢 We just wanted to take a moment to share the most 🤩 amazing collection of wildlife 🦋 species that have been snapped 📸 across our nursery in the East Riding of Yorkshire by our incredibly 🦸♀️hard working team!🦸♂️ Whilst continuing to produce the most flavoursome tomatoes 🍅 for our customers within the UK 🇬🇧 of course! Which animals your favourite? 🤔.
This Sugardrop variety is hand harvested at the peak of ripeness when they are bursting with sweet flavour, classic aroma and juicy texture. Intensify their sweetness by roasting them, or simply enjoy them as snack.
What did you have for breakfast today? Jam on toast? Grilled tomatoes with your fry-up? Maybe fruit juice or a coffee?
It’s tempting to think bees just provide us with honey – but in fact they’re behind much of the food we eat, including most fruit and vegetables.
Bees are crucial to our economy – without them it would cost UK farmers £1.8 billion a year to pollinate our crops. In a world without bees, our food would cost a lot more to produce and our economy would suffer.
Did you know that tomatoes help burn fat? That’s just one of many amazing benefits that come from eating these delicious fruits. If you are on diet, now is the time to include tomatoes as part of your daily regime. Tomatoes encourage the production of the amino acid called Carnitine, which is reported to enhance the body’s fat burning ability to at least 30 percent, if not more.

Within the height of the season we employ up to two-hundred and fifty members of staff, keeping on a core level of key individuals throughout the year as we enter into our close down period. During this time the nurseries are tasked with carrying out all necessary works in preparation for the up coming season.
A variety of seasonal and full time positions are available from time to time throughout each year, positions which tend in high demand; Crop Workers, Harvesters, Line Workers, Machine Operators, Team Leaders, Engineers, Forklift / Vehicle Operators and Quality Controllers.
During the months of full production we aim to take on between 100-150 seasonal employees that will aid us in crop work, harvesting and line work. At times where production may be at it's peak we require additional support where the Company may utilise agencies to facilitate the needs of the business. Where this occurs, we actively check that the agencies we use are fully licensed with the Gangmasters Licensing Authority (GLA).
All of our full time employees have the opportunity to take advantage of incentives such as “The Bike to Work Scheme” and “The Child Care Scheme”. Individuals within Managerial positions are able to benefit further with offerings from “The Computing Scheme” which is facilitated through Yorkshire Grown Produce Ltd. … See MoreSee Less
