Fresh Herbs, Salad Leaves & Edible Flowers. Growers and suppliers to the food industry of fresh cut herbs & baby leaf salads & now supply edible flowers.

A passion for good food and the poor availability of quality fresh herbs inspired Alison Dodd to start growing her own herbs in Yorkshire 17 years ago.

 

Alison-and-PhilAlison started her career as a Cordon Bleu chef in the family restaurant, and soon recognised the need for a good supply of fresh herbs to the catering industry. Herbs Unlimited progressed from supplying local Restaurants and Hotels to supplying the catering trade throughout the Country and businesses within the food processing sector. Fresh herbs have been gradually rediscovered as a primary source of flavour, and with more people concerned with healthy eating, and with the desire to support local producers and reduce “food miles”, demand has continued to increase.

To further develop the business further in 2002 Alison went into partnership with a local farmer, Trevor Bosomworth, in Sandhutton, near Thirsk and the business was incorporated as Sandhutton Growers Ltd. A new site was developed, which included, 2 acres of poly tunnels and glasshouses, a state of the art packhouse and 90 acres of field crops. This year we leased 2 acres of glass and 6 acres of poly tunnels to extend the season.

We specialise in high quality fresh cut herbs and baby salads. The polytunnels give us an extended season to grow our unique range of baby leaves and speciality herbs, and this is done to the highest specification using innovative growing methods and biological controls. Our dedicated Growers are committed to producing crops in as natural and environmentally sensitive way they can.

To complement our seasonal production, we import directly from quality controlled growers in Israel and Spain.This allows us to meet year round demand from our loyal customers, while ensuring we have full traceability from field to fork.

We believe our environmentally sensitive production of freshly cut Yorkshire herbs and baby salads deliver great quality taste and value for our customers.
