History of our Sponsorship

Primary Sponsors


“Founded in 1938, Hutchinsons is a leading crop production specialist and remains a family business providing advice, inputs and services to over one million hectares in the UK.

Our specialist horticultural team advises on all types of top and soft fruit, hops, vines, ornamentals and other horticultural crops, both protected and outdoor.

Providing expert agronomic knowledge helps our customers realise their full business potential – we offer full agronomy to specialist storage, production, precision technology and strategic planning advice. Also, guidance on nutrition, precision soil mapping and soil health, as well as our dedicated Produce Packaging division.

The Hutchinsons Enhanced Light Interception Orchard System (HELIOS) is unique research within the industry and explores how orchards can be improved to capture more sunlight to increase yield.”



We are a small family business that was set up in 1974 by Nick and Barbara Seymour. Over the years the business has slowly but steadily evolved from a ‘man with a van’ to a key part of the fruit and vine industry. We are proud to have now been in business for over forty years and have been Fendt tractor dealers for more than thirty years with the narrow 200 series being our speciality.

We design, manufacture and supply specialist equipment for the fruit, vineyard and hop industry; from machines to prepare the land for planting, right through production to storage, grading and packing of fruit into boxes for sale. Our bespoke design and build table-top strawberry sprayers lead the way in this sector of the spraying market. We also carry out sales and service of Winery and juice processing machinery as the UK distributor for Bucher Vaslin equipment.

We are proud to continually look to innovations and the latest machinery technology and with that are very pleased to be the UK Supplier of the ProbotIQ X-Pert autonomous driverless system as an add-on for Fendt Vario tractors. Increasing efficiency is key to moving forward for all of us.

This machine would work best on fruit wall systems but overall it improves efficiencies at harvest
