The Co-operative Farms has been farming for over 100 years. With so much experience to hand and as the leading community food retailer nothing makes better sense than for The Co-operative to grow our own food for our own stores. In 2003, over 100 years since The Co-operative Farms first supplied potatoes for our Co-operative stores, we launched ‘Grown by us’. This branded range of products made it easier for our customers to identify food grown by The Co-operative Farms.
As time went on we realised our customers were becoming more and more concerned about where their food comes from and how it has been produced. Working with our food team the Co-operative Farms have re-branded their Grown by us range to support the British farming message across our food stores. This highlights our position as one of the UK’s largest farmers and illustrates our support of the wider British farming industry.
We grow a variety of cereals, including wheat which goes into Co-operative packet flour, and a growing number of fruit and vegetables including potatoes, cider apples and peas - which all go into The Co-operative Food stores. See each product profile to find out more.
We focus on fresh, British, seasonal produce and therefore some products from our range are only available in store at certain times of the year. Please see individual products for further information.
The Co-operative Farms own 4 packhouses where we wash and pack fresh produce ready to be delivered to our stores.
