About Legge Farms

Legge Farms was started by Bill's father Les in the 1940s when he rented an acre of land from the church. Originally a horseman looking after other farmers' horses, Les proved an innovator of his time when he bought one of the first self propelled drills and set up his own contracting business, drilling other peoples land with carrots, onions and sugar beet.

Up until this time such precision work had been carried out by horse drawn machines. With the money Les made contracting, he built up his own farm, renting and buying land.

When he had finished agricultural college in 1965, Bill joined his father on the farm and in 1973 took over the management of the farm. In the year 2000, the third generation of Legges became involved when Bill's son, Pete, joined the team.
