Value our Farmers and Food Producers – Pat Crawford reports.
Changes are happening at two of Kent’s leading farms, both of which are in the KHD distribution area. Marion and Jonathan Regan of Hugh Lowe Farms, renowned for production of absolutely top-quality strawberries, have acquired Laurence J. Betts, producers of super-premium salad crops. In an interview with Horticulture Week, Stephen Betts, who chaired L.J.B. for forty-five years, said “It has been an honour following in the footsteps of my father Stewart, and my grandfather, Laurence, to build on their foundations centred on growing top quality produce while using good farming practice and treating staff and customers with respect. We are delighted that my cousin, Marion, and her family are taking over LJ Betts and I wish them every success for future generations”.
We can all celebrate the fact that two very important farms continue in outstandingly safe hands.
