This vast estate occupies 20,000 acres on the Norfolk/Suffolk borders. Around half the area is unfer cultivation with both vegetables and cereals.

Owned by the Guiness family since 1894, the present incumbent - the 4th Earl of Iveagh - is an enthusiastic partner cultivating some 1,200 acres of potatoes and an equal amount of onions, together with 500 acres of both carrots and parsnips for Alfred G. Pearce.

Primco groups market 450,000 tons of vegetables per year. They grow approx 180,000 tons grown in differents areas such as Normandy. South West of France, Spain and Portugal.

Carrots are available 11 months per year from early May till late March, early April. Spring season starts in May and ends at the end of July. It is during this period that carrots are exported to Alfred G. Pearce.

Crops are processed direct from the field, along with growing partners within a state of the art, purpose-built Processing Centre.

Varieties Grown

We currently grow Nairobi, Florida and Leguna varieties of carrots. We are constantly working towards finding commercial varieties that give better colour and taste, and are continually involved in variety testing session and seed open days. Within the last year we have grown a large acreage of 'Florida' variety to give better colour and taste.
