Farming Business

With over 90 years experience of farming in the south Lincolnshire fens, and many more years in the farming in the east midlands, the Leverton family strive to farm both the land they own and the land they rent with respect and in balance with wildlife and the environment.

Soil types vary from very black organic soils to sandy loam and a variety of crops are grown including wheat, oilseed rape, barley, dried peas, sugar beet and potatoes.

History

William Leverton brought his family to Dyke Fen, near Bourne, in the early part on the 20th century, after a long history of the family in the farming industry in the Boston and Spalding areas.

Following his death in 1930, his two eldest sons, William (Bill) and John Lewis (Jack), purchased the farm, which then amounted to 64.506 acres, and began farming as Leverton Brothers.
