Innovating and investing for the future
At Pollybell we have a simple philosophy; take the oldest of principles, organic farming, and apply the most modern of methods. To deliver this we are continually investing in new technologies, for example; moisture systems that ensure our produce remains fresh when stored; camera guided hoes; an automatic transplanter and our latest piece of precision engineering - the world's first automated broccoli harvester.
All of this investment enhances the productivity and efficiency of our operations. It also helps us to maintain the wonderful benefits of farming organically as well as maximising the use of our natural resources.
Our next goal is to transform our vegetable harvesting techniques to improve our quality and reduce seasonal staffing peaks. So far we have moved to driverless rigs, automating the driving process and removing the need for additional labour.
We have made a significant investment in these innovative techniques - some of which are firsts for the UK - and we believe they are imperative to deliver constant and consistent improvements to our service.
