Quadring Fen sunflower grower J B Robinson and Sons is being profiled at the Great Yorkshire Show this week.

The business, run by father and son team Richard and Henry Robinson, has been supplying M&S stores around the country for ten years with sunflowers for bouquets and floral arrangements, through flower supplier Finlays.

The family-run farm is to be highlighted as an example of best practice at the show from today until Thursday as part of M&S’s commitment to creating an ethical and sustainable supply chain.

The farm was chosen because of its sustainable practices, which include the use of beehives to help pollinate flowers, as well as its own bore hole to irrigate crops.
