About Us

Ribble Farm Fare, based in Longridge, Lancashire, is a family run business specialising in fruit and vegetables. Roger and Richard Coulston successfully run the business, along with their fully committed management team and 150 strong workforce.

Roger is in charge of the day-to-day running of the business, which includes dealing with existing and new clients. Richard runs the night shift and deals with the logistics of the business.

Roger and Richard’s father David Coulston, selling potatoes door-to-door, founded the business in 1964.

We pride ourselves in working with a customer’s individual needs, should it be bespoke products, invoicing or delivery times.

Our hands-on, flexible approach, has played a large part in our success today.

Our Ethos

Over the years we have built up a reputation of offering a service which is second to none whilst providing all of our customers with excellent quality produce at competitive prices. Wherever possible we endeavour to buy locally grown produce, from Lancashire and the surrounding areas, enabling us to support British farmers.

Our service to you

At Ribble Farm Fare we believe customer service is as important as the quality and freshness of our produce. We offer a friendly and reliable service to supply all your daily requirements.


Here at Ribble Farm Fare we take pride in what we do—that’s why we seek the proper accreditation for our hard work.

Our Producers

The majority of our products are sourced locally; Potatoes, Brasicas and all root Vegetables are grown on farms covering the Lancashire and Cheshire areas. Milk and local Cheeses are produced from cows grazing the fields and fells around the Longridge area.

Eggs are supplied either Lion stamped or Free Range and are produced from locally farmed chickens. All Yoghurts are manufactured from local farms surrounding our business. Like every Fruit and Vegetable business when the weather doesn’t permit us to buy locally we source produce a little further a field.
