With over 90 years experience of farming in the south Lincolnshire fens, and many more years farming in the east midlands, the Leverton family strive to farm both the land the 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. As well as baling the home straw, straw is also bought in swath from other farms and baled to sell on to both farms in the west country and also to supply Sleaford power station.
Potatoes are a large focus of the farm and huge investments have been made in storage facilities, harvesting equipment, handling equipment and also irrigation equipment. This ensures that Leverton Brothers are working at the forefront of available technology to produce and store a crop which meets the high expectations of customers.
Whilst Leverton Brothers Ltd are not currently members of the countryside stewardship scheme, they are committed to farming in an environmentally friendly manner.
Alongside the four directors, three fulltime employees work on the farm with agency staff brought in during busy potato grading periods.
Leverton Brothers Ltd are assured through the Red Tractor Scheme for both combinable crops and sugar beet and also Fresh Produce.
