The NextGen Fruit Group had a very exciting and action packed interim trip on 19th May in Kent.

1st Visit –  Countrystyle Recycling, Ridham

2nd Visit – Nyetimber Vineyards, Thurnham

Nyetimber’s Head Viticulturalist, Ben Kantsler, hosted members at their Thurnham site. The visit will give fascinating insights into an industry leading brand within the English viticulture space and we are very grateful to have this opportunity.

We also had the privilege from Richard Smith, speaking on behalf of our committed Partners, Haynes, New Holland. Show casing the most recent in vineyard machinery and concept ideas for what is on the horizon.

3rd Visit – Clockhouse Farm, Coxheath

Our NextGen Chairman and Managing Director of Clockhouse Farm, Oli Pascall, opened the doors of this fascinating top, stone and soft fruit business which has seen significant growth in recent years. An insight into their various croups and growing techniques, from state of the part infrastructure.

Ending up on the lavender fields for an unbeatable view of the Weald of Kent, to enjoy some food and drink and the company of our members.
