Kelsey Farms is owned by Paul Kelsey who is the third generation 'Kelsey' to be farming on this land.
The day to day running of the business is managed by Paul and his business partner, Jon Rix.
"We are part of a new generation of growers whose focus is to produce high quality, high yielding crops taking all care and due diligence in respect of our customers, employees and the environment."
As part of our commitment to this process, we are members of the Red Tractor Farm Assurance scheme, Tescos Nurture (Gold), Marks & Spencers Field to Fork, LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming), the Waitrose Farm Assessment scheme, BRC (British Retail Consortium) packhouse audit and Ethical Trading scheme Sedex. Each of these schemes requires us to undergo whole farm audits, carried out by independent inspectors, covering health & safety, pesticide use, re use and recycling, energy efficiency, water use efficiency, pollution assessment and environmental and conservation performance. We also undertake an Ethical Trading Audit which looks at worker wellfare, wages and conditions.
Our pack house is BRC (British Retail Consortium, Grade A) compliant which ensures best practice through the post harvest packing stage.
We also have a refrigerated vending machine on site which allows us to sell our fruit in season to anyone passing by.
