WE’RE TRYING

At Haygrove, we’ve been growing berries, cherries and organics for over 20 years. Alongside this, we also design, manufacture and supply field scale commercial poly tunnels, substrate systems and associated infrastructure to many of the best growers of high value crops the world over.

BY GROWERS, FOR GROWERS

We supply high quality, all year round berries, cherries and organics to leading retailers. Our model is to maximise the synergies of being both a grower and an equipment developer. Today we have fruit farms in the UK, South Africa, Portugal and China, and we sell our growing systems in over 40 countries worldwide.

Our Approach

We are working towards providing tangible case study evidence of a connection between financial performance and engagement with the other two bottom lines - people and planet. We wish to be at the front of a gathering wave of organisations that collectively contribute to a new definition of the word 'business'.
