Farming

Luffness Mains is a leading arable farming business situated in the fertile countryside of East Lothian.  Over 1500 acres of Grade 1 or 2 land is farmed by Luffness Mains; it is productive and intensively cropped.  Our principal crop is the potato, we are passionate about the nation’s favourite vegetable and we are recognised as specialists in this area. Luffness Mains has been a leader in the potato growing industry for over 50 years.

Luffness Mains strives to be modern, innovative and creative; we are able to achieve this with the benefit of generations of farming experience, the expertise of our team members and the support from our partners. We offer young people oppurtunities to develop their careers and give them a chance to share their new ideas with us. 

Our philosophy is simple: we provide our customers with excellent produce, whilst maintaining a conscientious policy of pro-active environmental stewardship.  This is why we have been recognised with a LEAF Marque accreditation – the highest standard in the UK for the practice of Integrated Farming.

We are continually implementing new procedures to improve productivity, efficiency and the sustainable management of precious natural resources within our farm business.  Our staff are crucial to our business, they have been trained to deliver excellence and are enormously supportive in helping us to achieve our goals at Luffness Mains. 

All our partners are extremely important to us, we aim to deliver the quality of produce required, as well as a professional and friendly service, at all times.  This extends to the local community; we endeavour to increase the awareness and understanding of farming and the environment by providing an approachable setting to facilitate agricultural teaching and training. Our recent building project supported by an SRDP grant in 2010 includes a LEAF room which provides an excellent illustration and explanation of why and how we do things at Luffness Mains.
