Family Run Business

Ribble Farm Fare Ltd is a family run business based in Longridge, Lancashire. We are suppliers of fresh foods to the catering industry.

Initially started in 1964, by their father David Coulston, brothers, Roger and Richard Coulston now successfully run the business, along with their committed management team and strong workforce.

Together they have excelled into turning Ribble Farm Fare into the successful thriving business it is today.

We take pride in what we do

Here at Ribble Farm Fare, 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 distinct orange and green fleet allows for regular delivery. Based in the North West, our 80 strong fleet of vehicles cover an increasing area.

The product range and quality offered by Ribble Farm has always been first class, as has the relationship with their Sales Manager and the Proprietor, Roger. Our driver is always friendly and efficient, any quality issues that arise are sorted speedily with no fuss. We have worked closely with Ribble Farm on product development, keeping our menu’s innovative and forward thinking. I would have no hesitation recommending Ribble Farm Fare to any prospective catering outlet. They are a great local company where the customer definitely comes first.

I have used Ribble Farm for over 15 years here at Chester Racecourse and found them to be a very reliable supplier. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They will always go out of their way to help with unusual products that we ask for. Rodger & Pat are super stars. Great Company.
