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 60 strong fleet of vehicles cover an increasing area. Please contact us for an update on where we deliver our produce. Our decision to move into new areas is often developed through our expanding customer base.
We prepare a wide range of vegetables within a temperature-controlled environment ensuring the highest standard of freshly prepared vegetables at competitive prices.
Our purpose-built preparation building has played a major part in our investments, by constantly upgrading our machinery to keep up with the ever-growing needs of our customers.
The majority of our products are sourced locally: potatoes, brassicas 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.
We have an abundance of local farmers who supply us, but during inclement weather or when the season changes we source produce from a little further afield.
