When John Sykes Rymer founded JSR Farms Ltd in 1958, he established some important business principles. He set out a simple formula that has continued to provide a focus for the group’s activities and growth - people, pigs, peas and potatoes. Leading people at the forefront of sustainable food production whilst being dedicated to modern farm practices that respect the environment and animals are bred to be fit for the farm and for the fork.
Operating and maintaining land extensively throughout East Yorkshire, JSR farms around 4100 hectares (10100 acres) of arable crop production within a 20 mile radius of the home farm at Southburn.
The JSR Group includes two operational companies:
JSR Genetics Ltd a highly successful international pig genetics company and JSR Farms Ltd an integrated arable farming business that demonstrates sustainable farming.
JSR Farms continue to align the needs of the producer, consumer and the environment with skilled people who know and understand John Rymer’s core values. These three core values to this day, are very much part of our philosophy and form the basis of our dedication to being leaders at the forefront of sustainable food production.
