Veg Growing Business Opportunity in Pembrokeshire.

An opportunity has arisen for a grower to take on an established vegetable farming business in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

The current owner has successfully grown potatoes and other field vegetables for nearly 25 years, but is looking to take a step back and find someone with the passion and drive to take the business forwards.

Around 13 hectares of land near Haverfordwest is available for horticultural crop rotation on an open-field scale. As the land is organic-registered with the Soil Association, the successful farmer or grower who takes over would be entitled to apply for funding from the Welsh Government’s Glastir Organic scheme, providing they are willing to sign up to the five-year terms required by the programme. The land is currently under production with a view to renting from the current growing season. Produce able to be grown on the land ranges from early potatoes, peas, broad and runner beans, and lettuce during summer, with swedes, cauliflowers, cabbages, parsnips, carrots, leeks, and sprouts in the winter.

A five-year tenancy would be available for the suitable candidate, and the package would include full use of the farm’s equipment and machinery, a building and office, two polytunnels ready to be set up, and a poultry house for around 300 laying hens. Although there is no onsite accommodation currently available at the farm, the landowner would be willing to consider allowing temporary accommodation on site.
