John Chinn, the managing partner of Cobrey Farms commented, "This has been a very important advancement, not just for our business but for UK asparagus production overall. I would like to thank Hargreaves Plants for their help in development of this project. The product we are harvesting is much fresher than the imported spears found on the shelves at present, and as a result, the consumer is provided with a better eating experience. The product is being sold by leading M & S stores throughout the UK."

However, Mr Chinn is having success with the techniques he has pioneered to extend the season for homegrown spears, inspired by those used with strawberries. 'Every pack of British asparagus we can grow means one less flown in from Peru,' he says.

John Chinn, partner at Cobrey and Coleraine Farms, said his company has been to meetings and answered questions from concerned residents. The site does not need planning permission for caravans, as long as they go at the end or the season.

"We have been going through the democratic process of applying for planning permission, but, until we get this approved, we cannot landscape the site to make it attractive," he said.
"There are a lot or people who are happy with what we do, but some have understandable concerns," said Mr Chinn.

History [cached]

Cobrey Farms is a family partnership of Mr John Chinn and his wife Mrs Gay Chinn and their son Henry.

John Chinn is the managing partner in the business that is primarily involved in arable farming.
His son, Bill, bought the farm in 1957 and had built the business up to 182ha (450 acres) of owner occupied farm under the partnership name of Cobrey Farms, by 1975 when his son, John, came home to the farm from Nottingham University. As the acreage expanded, potato quota was purchased, sugar beet was introduced in 1978, onions in 1983 and carrots in 1996.
