Metcalfe Organic are dedicated growers, packers and prepared organic food producers. Based at Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire, with the crops grown across the Vale of York, we are the region's largest organic vegetable pack house. A family farm, run by Stephen and Miriam Metcalfe; we have been growing organic crops since 1989 and the pack house has been running since 2004. We grow over 20 different vegetables on 320 acres of land ranging from black kale to sweetcorn, and aim to have availability for as long as the Yorkshire season and storage allow.
With the addition of the packing and high care areas we have been able to develop a far wider range of products and customers than before. We are currently the only organic provider to the School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme, supplying 250,000 4-6 year olds, (and some 7-11 year olds) in the Yorkshire and Humber Region.
We are able to produce prepared carrots and potatoes, all to order, with short lead in times, guaranteeing freshness and high quality. In season the carrots are lifted almost daily ensuring the best quality with the best flavour, and our potatoes are grown for their good taste and excellent cooking qualities. Customers range from local hotels and restaurants, vegetable wholesalers, NHS PASA, Dept. of Health, school meal caterers and multiple retailers. We carry all the expected accreditiation required of any modern food buisiness. There is increasing interest from ready meal manufacturers and food processors in being able to obtain volume supplies of a wide range of organic produce, prepared and whole, with known provenance. We are able to meet their expectations and supply what they need.
Alongside the high care operation we have state-of-the-art vertical form fill and seal lines for retail packs.
A recent exciting development for the business is, with a number of other growers in Yorskhire, the formation of Public Sector Produce Suppliers Ltd, (PSPS Ltd)an agricultural co-operative who are the contracted supplier of fruit and vegetables to Leeeds City Council school meals service.
We are a customer focused business whether you are large or small and we aim to provide an equally high qualtiy of service and attention to every customer.
