CJC LEE (Saxthorpe) Ltd

CJC Lee (Saxthorpe) Ltd is a family run and owned primarily agricultural business based in North Norfolk. With the family being able to trace back their farming roots in Norfolk since the mid nineteenth century.

The business became incorporated as a limited company in 1948 when Corbett James Cook Lee was in control. His great nephew Peter Seaman took over the role of Managing Director in 1969 and in 2015 his daughter Pixie Flather joined the business to continue the family involvement at CJC Lee.

Today the business farms 3500 acres set across 6 farms consisting of owned, rented and contract farmed land. Over the years the business has successfully diversified from its core agricultural heritage.
