Spital farm has been in the Moore family since
the 1930's. Originally used for vegetable production, it now
concentrates on potato production with the addition of a packing
plant. The light soil of the Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire
area allows us to grow potatoes
with good skin quality for the fresh produce market.
The farm has 4 irrigation licences allowing us
to irrigate about 60 hectares of potatoes a year and so
producing a quality crop. With water being a very important
input the irrigation is closely managed to ensure that the crop
has the water that it requires without any water being wasted,
or causing erosion of the soil.
