Taking the best traditional and modern growing techniques to grow high quality, delicious tomatoes in the most environmentally friendly and sustainable way possible. Innovative and forward thinking in our business approach, APS also apply this to education and succession planning through apprenticeships and school college engagement. We take workshops to schools and colleges, as well as welcome them to sites for a more interactive learning experience.

Myself, I have been in the industry for 25 years, I find it particularly rewarding to work with students of all ages, and help them to realise how what they are learning can be applied directly to what we do on a daily basis, mainly across the STEM subjects.  Also educating and explaining as to where food comes from and all the areas of expertise applied along the way to achieve this.  I find this early education and awareness to be vital in securing future apprentices who know what industry they are coming into, and coming into it with purpose and vision.
