Tommy tomatoes...

When I travel to and from work, through the early part of the year, the skyline is marked by steam rising from the sugar beet factory at Wissington as it processes the year's beet harvest. I now know that next to the factory is a site called Cornerways, which is the UK's largest tomato growing greenhouse.
The site has now won an award for its work.

I may try to get in touch and see whether I can visit as it would make a good local case study for food production, and sustainable industries.

Here's some more information about the factory and how it uses the waste heat and carbon dioxide from the factory next door...
