History

Our history dates back to 1966 when Greens of Soham began to farm in the United Kingdom. In 2000, Spearhead was formed as a result of the merger of Greens of Soham and Farmwealth, owner of a leading Polish farm business which operated on former Polish state farms via long-term leases with low fixed rents, and also in the Czech Republic.

Since then, the Group has grown consistently and has received significant capital injections from respected investors.

In 2007 and 2008 Altima Partners invested in the Group, supporting its next phase of growth.

In July 2015, Paine Schwartz Partners, a leading private equity firm that focuses on complex investment opportunities in the fast growing, dynamic global food and agribusiness sectors, acquired Spearhead. Since the acquisition, we have benefited from Paine Schwartz’s expertise in the global agricultural market.
