Peter Squirrell

Suffolk

Target wheat yield: 12t/ha

Growing up on a small family farm in Suffolk, Peter and his family have diversified the operation to include a number of revenue streams. The largely arable enterprise grows cereals, OSR and sugar beet as well as running a horse livery yard, small bulk haulage business and more recently a traditionally reared, rare breed pork enterprise “Maypole Pork”. He also runs contract farms with two neighbors who have similar cropping and the addition of winter beans.

 

Peter has never been to New Zealand and is really looking forward to taking in the scenery. He is married with two children, and owns a Suffolk Punch mare which he has shown and bred.
