  • Lamb – Bowland Farms, Lancashire
  • Carrots – Bob Wrights, Scarisbrick, Lancashire

Owned and farmed by Philip Wright and his son Stephen. A family business in Scarisbrick, Ormskirk passed down from Stephen’s Grandfather Robert. Carrots are the main crop of the farm along with cereal, wheat and barley. The farm grows and packs between 15,000 and 20,000 tonnes of carrots a year, supplying mainly fruit and vegetable wholesalers.

The Ascroft family have been farming the land around Holmes on the Lancashire plains since the beginning of the 20th century. Against the modern trend of monoculture (growing one crop only) we have chosen to stick to the traditional way of growing a variety
of crops in rotation to keep the goodness in the soil. With over five generations of farming heritage we are specialists in our field. Our aim is to produce excellent-quality fresh vegetables for the restaurant trade and consumer.

  • Onions – Golding Farms, Rufford, Lancashire
