SINCE 1909

From newspaper editor to farmer.
Growing and innovating since 1909.


In 1909 William Naylor left his job as a newspaper editor and moved with his wife to Lincolnshire to work with his sister on her farm.

Soon after, his son Harold was born and together they created a business that to this day has never faltered, even through two world wars, from growing and supplying the very best produce.


I am extremely proud to be the fourth generation of my family to take the helm. I am often asked what I put this longevity and success down to… The truth is, I have inherited a love and passion for caring for the soil and working with nature. This, together with the way our business has adapted and changed with the times has ensured we have established and maintained a reputation I am sure would have made my great grandfather proud.

“It is proven that family businesses establish a great competitive advantage with their longer term and sustainable outlook and their ability to adapt.

I believe we have created an environment that is ‘family redefined’ where all are considered as family be they employees or customer. The resulting culture enables me to encourage and identify talent and skills in the business, investing in them early on to ensure that we harness new and innovative ideas and practises that ensure the business and those involved continue to grow.”

British farmers and growers are some of the most innovative in the world. It’s vital we continue to invest in more sustainable agronomy systems and technologies to ensure we maintain our globally high production standards.
