Bury Lane Farm is a cut flower and arable farm which sits within the EW Pepper organisation alongside retail, hospitality, soft play commercial property, residential property, sport, forestry, sustainable energy and bakery businesses.
The farm specialises in producing high end perennial crops such as Peonies, Agapanthus and Oriental Lilies for UK Supermarkets, as well as growing strawberries and asparagus for local retailers. It employs cutting edge technology such as a coir sterilisation facility and custom built LEDs to enable it to be the only UK producer of AYR Oriental Lilies and benefits from synergies with other departments within EW Pepper.
Diversification and expansion are core objectives and Bury Lane is seeking to form relationships with other members through trialling crops and products, or investing in brilliant new ideas. EW Pepper has a long history of innovation in agriculture, having played a leading role in the introduction of landrace pigs and the development of UK ornamentals. New Managing Director, Will Clayton, has a passion for both education and technology, and views intra-sector collaboration as essential for the future of UK horticulture and agriculture.
