Farm Visits with E-Foods

During April, we had a visit from two members of the E-Foods team. With local produce at the heart of our company we decided to take them a tour of some of the local farms we get our produce from.

Our first stop was at Rimmer’s Potatoes in Tarleton, Lancashire. This is a small family run farm which specialises in the growing of fine quality potatoes.

We then went and visit Baxter’s High Brow Produce in Banks, Southport. The farm is run by David Baxter, his wife and son. Who are hard at work seven days a week, all year round to ensure the best produce is available.

We then took a trip to Ormskirk to visit Smithy Mushrooms. They have been supplying exotic mushrooms for over twenty years and have built themselves a reputation for reliability and consistency.

Our fourth and final stop was just down the road to Molyneux Kale Company. Here Chris Molyneux and his team produce a range of specialist kales and brassicas. In fact, Molyneux are the only year-round producers of kale in the UK.

Check out our video below for a quick look at how the day went:

A great day visiting some of the local farmers who supply us with our friends from E-Foods and Elior. A big thanks to Rimmers Potatoes, Baxter's High Brow Produce, Smithy Mushrooms & Molyneux Kale Company for their excellent hospitality!
