Produce PortfolioForced Rhubarb and field crops

The Tomlinson family has been growing forced rhubarb continuously for four generations in Pudsey, West Yorkshire, an area with particularly fertile soil inside the renowned Rhubarb Triangle. They are the only forced rhubarb producer left in Yorkshire to grow pre-WWII crowns, giving them exclusivity on varieties unmatched in both appearance and flavour.

Harvested in the dark and by candlelight according to age-long tradition, their rhubarb has tender, almost fibre-less stalks that are bright pink in colour and have the most delicate flavour.

The family applies the same great care and dedication to growing outdoor rhubarb and other field vegetables, including fennel, chard and kale.
