Manor Farm is currently being farmed by the second and third generation of the same family. Growing potatoes, cereals and sugar beet, the farm has also been part of a successful environmental scheme for the last 15 years, encouraging biodiversity and developing soil health across the farm.
Sisters, Clare and Louise, have both returned to join Paul and Kate Knapton on the family farm after working in London for nearly ten years.
We are now heading into winter after finishing cereal harvest earlier in the summer, a process we enjoyed showing many of our guests during that time. Potato harvest also went well with the stores now full. Our sugar beet has been harvested and will be processed into Silver Spoon sugar sold in British supermarkets. In a total contrast to last year we now have all cereals drilled up, putting down roots and hopefully growing well during the winter.
