Wainfleet Monitor Farm
About Wainfleet Monitor Farm
- Primrose Farm has been a Monitor Farm since June 2020
- The farm features arable cropping and contract spraying and combining
- Crops include: wheat, barley, oilseed rape, beans and peas
- Soils are clay and marshy, with siltier soils towards the south
Based 7 miles inland from Skegness, second-generation farmer Gary and his wife Debbie oversee 75 hectares of owned land, as well as some tenanted and contracted land. The pair juggle the dual roles of growing the business while bringing up a young family.
Gary and Debbie are interested collaboration, shared machinery and succession. They would like to explore ways to improve soil health and trial new cultivations to move away from an entirely plough-based system.
