Blacks of Bacton comprises two family owned companies headquartered at Bacton and operating across various farm sites mostly in the Mid-Suffolk area.  Our business is predominantly farming but we also control and lease a portfolio of both commercial and residential properties.  The family have been farming from the same base at Bacton for over a century.   The main holding company, David Black & Son Ltd., has existed for more than 60 years.

Our core business is a mix of arable farming and pig rearing, with a high level of recycling of resources.  Wheat and oilseed rape grown on the farm are processed externally, and some of their produce (animal feed and straw) provides essential raw materials for the pig rearing operation which, in turn provides nutrients and organic matter in the form of muck for crop production.

As well as farming on our own account we have a number of clients who we farm for.  Our arable rotation includes, wheat, barley, sugar beet, oilseed rape, environmental margins and cover crops.  Bacton Pigs Ltd., a subsidiary, keeps a small sow herd and rears the progeny and other weaners for a major processor supplying the UK market.  All our products support the British Red Tractor Assurance Schemes; we are also registered with FWAG, the RSPCA Freedom Foods and GWCT.

Over the years, we have adapted our business to meet the changing rural economic, environmental and social demands and are committed to meeting the needs of our customers and clients.   As farming economics have become more challenged we have diversified some of our resources to non-farming businesses and now host a thriving business hub within our main yard at Red House Farm, Bacton.
