Pudsey Yorkshire is a small market town which over the years has become a close and safe neighbourhood for many. Nestled in between the houses lies a small farm which consists of 80 acres of open farm land where magical things happen throughout the year.
Since 1867 the Tomlinson family have farmed this open landscape ensuring the finest quality produce is grown inline with mother nature. Over decades the farm has developed and now is the leading grower of what can only be described as the finest Yorkshire rhubarb on the planet. Holding a close relationship with the family Delifresh are continually developing whilst helping the farm diversify so supply is consistent and from here on lies a legacy of growing on the land for years to come.
One great example of this is the work we have done together with forced beetroot shoots, northern chicory, salsify and other exciting crops throughout the years– Although the seasons for these bespoke items are very short with low volume its great to be part of the farms future as we help to offer a route into kitchens throughout the north not forgetting connecting the family with our most inspirational customers.
W.S Bentleys have been an inspirational arm of Delifresh for many years, creating new and interesting shoots, sprouting peas, seeds & all things micro green to keep your garnish and flavour combinations exciting no matter what time of year it is.
W.S Bentleys started their journey growing the traditional mustard cress which they do on a large scale servicing the majority of the retail sector it wasn’t until Delifresh interacted with the team at Bentleys and worked closely together to develop a new and interesting range for the team to embrace and innovate with.
Delifresh & W.S Bentleys are constantly striving together to develop exciting new and creative flavour combinations that will keep your senses active. WATCH OUT as something that combines texture, colour and most of all outstanding flavour is coming your way very soon.
Until then make sure you enjoy the most delicate and sophisticated flavours W.S Bentley nurture and deliver every day.

There is a certain romance around having a most flavoursome northern grown tomato upon every delivery throughout the year but this hasn’t been possible up until now!!!
The inspirational team at Stockbridge Technology Centre were set a mission 3 years ago to create a sustainable, consistent and most marvellous fruit which cropped throughout the year. At first this was a challenge which seemed impossible until the research facility got their creative minds together and developed a new and exciting method of growing what is often classed to be the most inconsistent crop of all time.
When the team choose a challenge they always look for the hardest to complete and what more difficult than to choose a fruit which at times incorporates humongous logistical journeys to get back onto our plates. The tomato is a sub-tropical fruit which demands the most perfect of conditions in order to flourish and produce a sweet yet sophisticated flavour profile, this is why the country of origin for all tomatoes changes with the summer months as they migrate around our globe in line with mother nature’s intense rays.
By the use of revolutionary LED lighting the team at Stockbridge can grow the finest flavour driven, ripe and freshest fruit every day of the year – this simply means you could have a perfect northern fruit on your plate at Christmas time.
