Clive is the fourth generation of the Martin family to farm at Whitegates Farm in the Fenlands near March. It is a 1600 acre farm of which 350 acres were converted to organic in 2006. Under the Holm Select brand Clive has created a niche in the market for his produce by specialising in a small number of gourmet vegetables and producing them to a very high standard. Holm Select is, for example, the largest producer of organic asparagus and globe artichokes in the UK. HolmSelect is also a LEAF marque certified farm (standing for Linking Environment and Farming), meaning it recognised for being managed in an environmental responsible and sustainable manner.
