UK: Royal opening at Standhill Farm

20th September was a big day for Jim Shanks and his family, as the Princess Royal officially opened their 16,000 square metre state-of-the-art tomato nursery in the Scottish Borders.

The opening ceremony was a happy and informal occasion as well as a great opportunity for the staff at Standhill Farm, their families, local children and the official party, to meet the Princess.

The nursery, a turnkey project designed and built by CMW and Certhon, was planted on January 13th 2017, and in production with premium varieties Sweetelle and Annamay on 27th March.
