About Rowe Farming
Rowe Farming has been trading in Helston, Cornwall since 1952.
Originally a mixed family farm growing potatoes, winter green veg and dairy the decision to focus primarily on potato production specialising in early quality crops was taken in 2001.
The Rowe family developed and perfected early and salad production in the unique environment in West Cornwall. Later the business expanded into fresh cut daffodils and daffodil bulb production. In 2012, Rowe Farming was acquired by Produce Investments. As part of the Produce Investments group this gave access to resources and expertise that continued to strengthen the business.
