Lavenham and Great Livermere is managed by Martin Bowers, who prides himself on growing a diverse range of crops including wheat, oilseed rape, barley, rye, peas, potatoes and sugar beet. Sugar beet is a significant crop for Martin and is grown directly for the sugar beet factory in Bury St Edmunds.
Martin is a large contractor in the surrounding area and has successfully grown the contract management part of his operation.
Lavenham boasts some 50 residential and commercial properties which are looked after by a dedicated maintenance team.
