We grow around 900 acres of Parsnips, with a cropping season from mid July through to May. The majority of the Parsnip Crop grown by the business is marketed under the Frederick Hiam brand in the UK and increasingly into mainland Europe.
Parsnips are size graded to meet Customer requirements and packs range from 500 g prepacks , 5 kg Boxes , 10 kg Bags & 1 tonne Jumbo Bags for Processing or export.
Hydro-cooling and cold storage before dispatch is an important part of our process.
With peak demand for Parsnips being in the 3 weeks around Christmas the Harvest Teams are geared up to lift and cart 30% of our crop in this critical 3 weeks!
