Delicious salad crops, grown in Kent.

Today's technology meets traditional horticultural expertise at Thanet Earth. Our site is home to four vast greenhouses. Inside them we grow tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers; our crops destined for the shelves of some of Britain's biggest retailers.

Each greenhouse is a power station too, generating electricity for the National Grid. We keep our plants warm by making use of the waste heat from our cutting edge Combined Heat & Power technology which also provides us with the extra CO2 our plants need to grow to their potential. This means that our produce doesn't just taste delicious, it has a very low carbon footprint too. So to the consumer, you get delicious crops, grown and packed in Kent, from a grower with an excellent environmental record.
