“Founded in 2005 by businessman and part-time farmer Ashley Turner, Yorkshire Crisps produces its award-winning produce in Wales Bar – a village between Sheffield and Rotherham.
“Our small, dedicated team is proud of its Yorkshire roots and creates deliciously addictive crisps and scrumptious popcorn using the finest local ingredients for people from far and wide.
“Our luxury hand-cooked crisps and perfect popcorn are deliciously moreish and packed full of taste and flavour. Our crisps are made from carefully selected potatoes that are grown by local farmers on the chalky soils of the Yorkshire Wolds. They are hand cooked in hot, pure sunflower oil for a few minutes then sprinkled with 100% natural flavouring while still warm.
“Our popcorn is made from the world’s finest corn, popped to perfection and seasoned with totally natural flavourings and lots of tender loving care.
“As well as our online shop, we supply farm shops, delis, coffee shops, sandwich bars, public houses, wine bars, theatres and many independent retailers.
“We are also available in some larger multiple retail stores in the Yorkshire region, making it easy for everyone to enjoy our fabulous crisps.

“The Garlic Farm is based in Newchurch on the Isle of Wight and is spread over a large amount of land that incorporates several sites.

“Travelling far and wide from America to Kazakhstan in search of different garlic varieties to bring back for UK growing and distribution and by infusing all our chutneys, condiments, beer and even ice-cream with this kitchen staple super food, our love the garlic bulb is clear.

Wold Top Brewery
“Our family has farmed 600 acres high on the Yorkshire Wolds for generations and our aim is to continue to do so.
“Sustainability is key, we want to work in balance with nature so we grow trees and hedges to offset the carbon footprint, we plant areas for birds and wildlife, we consider the bees that are essential for the pollination of the crops and we use crop rotations to keep the soil in good heart.
“We also use renewable energy from our own wind turbines and have our own water supply from natural chalk aquifers under the farmland.
“We want every pint of Wold Top to be enjoyed as much as the previous one, so we balance our malts and hops to give flavours, aromas and tastes that can be enjoyed time after time, pint after pint.
“We live, work and play in a wonderful area of Yorkshire and want to maintain this balance for future generations. Hence growing our own barley in the most sustainable way we can, sourcing our power from the wind and drawing our water from underground aquifers deep in the chalk.
