EJ Barker & Sons is a family-owned partnership based at Lodge Farm, in North Suffolk, focusing primarily on the production of high-quality arable crops for a range of markets as well as growing grass as a cash crop. David’s family have been growing grass for seed for over three generations, more than 60 years. For David, grass is a valuable two-year break crop among the wheat, barley, beans and oilseed rape. It has boosted farm profitability, soil health and wildlife, and it is as important to the farm now as it was in 1961. Brothers David and Roy Barker have passed on their skill and enthusiasm for growing the crop to their sons, Patrick and Brian respectively – The Barker Boys!
