Farming as usual


The Coop Group have announced the sale of their farming subsidiary, Farmcare Ltd, to The Wellcome Trust. Farmcare are farming tenants of HICO and run their Kent fruit farming operations from Highland Court Farm near Canterbury, Kent.

Farmcare’s sale to such a long term investment company means that it will be business as usual for the farm workers as they approach the busy apple harvest season; ending months of speculation as to their future employers.
