Caroline Keeling, chief executive took the floor next to talk about the commercial side of the business, plans for growth and the level of overseas business.
The tour then moved on to the apple orchard, where head apple grower Brendan O'Sullivan spoke in-depth about the different varieties of apples grown on the farm and the science behind the growing process.
Guests also visited the pepper glasshouse to see the plants developing, and were taken through the growing process by head pepper grower, Jarleth Kingston.
