WHO WE ARE
T Wilson and Sons (Farmers) Ltd is a family farm based in Rainford, Merseyside growing over 1800 acres across Lancashire, Merseyside and Cheshire. Two Generations of the family work in the business, Carol Wilson who started the business in 1972 with her late husband Thomas Wilson and their four children now all work in the family business.
Thomas and Alastair Wilson work together to grow and harvest nearly 2000 acres of vegetable and salad crops, Rob Wilson manages a fleet of 18 HGVs delivering UK wide to our customer base and Julie who manages Sales and Finance. The third generation of the family are hot on their heels and are showing a great interest in growing and farming in the future.
We specialise in roots (Carrots) , alliums (Leeks), brassicas (Savoy Cabbage/Sweetheart Cabbage) and Salads (Iceberg, Romaine, Little Gem and Red Gem). The location of our farm in the North West means we mainly farm on Grade 1 black peat soils, sand and loam over a 50 mile radius. We benefit from 1000mm annual rainfall a year which significantly reduces our reliance on irrigation and allows us to grow a varied variety of crops all year round.
We’re Supporting Wildlife
At T Wilson and Sons (Farmers) Ltd we use integrated farm management practices and are involved with countryside stewardship schemes.
