Adrian Scripps began farming in 1960 on a traditional Weald of Kent Hop and Fruit Farm.

The philosophy was simple; produce quality, reinvest and expand.

Today, Adrian Scripps Ltd farms 750Ha across 5 specially selected sites across Kent.

This includes more than 400 Ha  of Apples, Pears and Blackcurrants making us one of the UK’s largest fruit growers.

To ensure consistent quality we have developed centralised storage and packing facilities at Moat Farm. They are equipped with state of the art grading facilities including the latest in robotic technology to ensure we maintain our high standards.

Combined with pioneering innovation in the orchard, from the development and advancement of the trellis system to increasing varietal development, Adrian Scripps Ltd continues to strive towards increased efficiency and quality.

Community

Our farms are based in the heart of rural Kent where we have been an intrinsic part of the local community for over half a century. We understand the long history of the relationship our business has, not only with our neighbours but also with the natural environment. Our fields and orchards provide habitat for a wide range of flora and fauna, as well as an amenity for local people, societies and clubs.

We are pleased to support a wide range community projects including refurbishment of village playgrounds, planting and enhancement of wildlife habitats. We have also invested in community shops, supported Britain in Bloom and of course are delighted to support many local sports teams, clubs and societies in the various parishes near and around our farms.
