DryDrayton Estate and South Cambridgeshire
At the heart of Dry Drayton Estate is Scotland Farm. Owned by the Peck family since 1950 and occupying some 840 acres of South Cambridgeshire, the farm is contracted out to PX Farms Limited, which is owned and run by James Peck. PX Farms, based at Scotland Farm provides farm management, agricultural contracting, grain storage and grain haulage services to other farms, land owners and grain merchants in the region.
A South Cambridgeshire location with close proximity to Cambridge and good road communications has aided the development of the Dry Drayton Estate business from its agricultural heritage into commercial property. Whilst diversification has been important, the company has had the confidence to invest in equipment and facilities which are enabling it to proper as the demand for food crops continues to grow.
“The Dry Drayton Estate is rooted in South Cambridgeshire. There is no better location to develop a modern agricultural business.” Adrian Peck
