AC Hulme & Sons is a family run mixed farm which has been operating in East Kent since 1946; the company farms approximately 5,000 acres, supplying some of the UK's foremost retailers as well as local markets, farm shops and other outlets.
The Farms operate from three principle locations in Canterbury (Merton Farm), Hoaden (Hoaden Court) and Wingham (Brook Farm) and grow a diverse range of produce, including: fruit (apples, pears, cherries, apricots and plums); hops; arable; potatoes; and livestock (single suckle beef cattle and sheep) with a haulage business serving both the Farms and other local businesses across the South East.
Tom Hulme joined the family business 3 years ago full time and manages the fruit side of the business. The fruit enterprise extends to 150 hectares ( 360 acres) of which half is apples.
"We want you to be as passionate and as excited about our produce as we are"
Jonathan Parker, Managing Director
