Undoubtedly local…

About us

We have always been passionate about bringing our customers the very best local produce. Acquiring the very best products from local producers and farmers from around the local area. Whether this is local milk and cream from Bidlea Dairy less than 3 miles away, or gravy and stocks from Essential Cuisine in Winsford.

Our great relationships to all of these producers going back generations, has positioned Oliver Perry Ltd at the very heart of the Cheshire countryside. This unique position enables us to supply products from around the world, local area and straight from the farm at Shanty Farm, Byley, CW10 9NG

Bidlea dairy

The Brown family have been living on their farm, raising their girls, for over 40 years. From just 20 cows originally to an almost 1000-strong herd, the reputation of their Bidlea Girls – Holstein-Friesian cows – has seen them win both National and European awards.

They eat the best, home-grown feed from Cheshire. They roam the luscious green countryside of their farm, outside for the majority of the year. And they enjoy a happy, content life, producing fresh delicious milk that’s high in protein and butter fat.

The best feed. The best welfare. The best milk. Simple really.

Bidlea dairy is home to Bidlea Milk – perfect for brews, breakfast and baking – or as a delicious drink straight from the glass.

The Brown family have been dairy farmers for three generations, and they intend to be dairy farmers for many more years to come. We don’t think you’ll find anyone who loves milk more than they do and they’re passionate about promoting the benefits of fresh farm milk, processed right here in Cheshire.

Shanty farm

The Lowes family have been harvesting the fields at Byley for generations. We work hand in hand with Graham and his sons Sam and Tom, and are so privileged to be able to offer their produce to our customers.

Our purpose-built distribution warehouse meets all the needs of BRC accreditation but is also situated on the farm. You can regularly see them harvesting their crops from our warehouse. Harvesting each day, ready for us to distribute to you the following day. You can’t get any more local or fresher than that!

The Lowes family grows a vast range of root vegetables, brassicas, cabbages and squash. They pride themselves on only growing the finest produce, and will only harvest produce that they are happy to sell in their own shop. We are proud to be the only wholesaler of their produce.

Over recent years, with their own and our demand on a larger variety of produce charging each year, they have adapted their growing to enable us to offer a wider range of produce.

Now growing Purple and Romanesco Cauliflower, Courgette Flowers, January King Cabbage, and Baby Leeks (which have become a particular favourite of Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor).

Woodlands farm

Woodlands Farm covers approximately 27 acres near Knutsford, Cheshire. The Halman family have been farming in Cheshire for 51 years and are now proudly into their 4th generation.

Oliver Perry Ltd & Roy Halman have worked together for many years to build a very successful relationship, and it is this continuity of trade & affiliation that has allowed Oliver Perry Ltd to offer the finest quality outdoor grown heritage tomatoes, rhubarb, leeks, lollo rosso, lollo biondi, oak leaf, cos & flat lettuce that is on offer around the local area.

The lettuce & rhubarb are picked fresh every morning, and are packed in the field ready for dispatch. We collect them from the farm around noon for delivery to you the following morning. Their products are always first-rate in terms of both quality & consistency.

We pride ourselves on the close relationships that we have with our farmers & growers, many of whom have grown alongside us from day one. This gives us access to the best of their crops at the very best prices.

Hayfields dairy

Hayfields dairy have been handmaking cheese since 1957. Their passion for the taste, look and texture of the cheese at every stage is imperative and they do everything they can to ensure the cheese tastes the best!

Hand-Made, Hand-Cut, Hand-Loved.

The Huntbach family has been have been dairy farmers at Hayfields Farm, South Cheshire, for three generations. The family first settled on the farm in September 1949. The family first started producing cheese in 1957.

Although the last dairy cow left the farm in 2018 and the family sorely miss the sight of black and white cows wandering the fields, it has given them the capacity to focus on selling their good quality, tasty cheese and butter to a wider audience. They only use milk from farmers based locally so that they can establish good relationships with their suppliers and know the farming practice used in making the milk they use.

Nurtured in Norfolk

Allan and Sue started growing Micro Cress back in 2009. As chefs themselves, their transition from one profession to another was brought about by the need for a more consistent and flavourful garnish for their dishes. They began growing Micro Herbs and Pea Shoots in a small greenhouse in their back garden and supplied the restaurant they worked in. Their experience has helped them tremendously in understanding the requirements of chefs.

Having successfully grown Microgreens for the use in the restaurant and receiving positive feedback, they were asked by a local wholesaler to grow in a larger volume. After noticing the demand for plant-based garnishes, Allan and Sue left their roles as chefs. This is when they invested their time and money into the business and ‘Nurtured in Norfolk’ was born.

Allan and Sue chose Micro Herbs that where strong in flavour and still looked appealing on the plate. Including varieties that are most popular because of their robust flavour.

‘Nurtured in Norfolk’ supply a range of Edible Flowers, Micro Cress, Pea Shoots, Edible Leaves, Bunched Herbs, Baby and Sea Vegetables in various colours and flavours. All together there are over 280 different products in the range. You can view the online catalogue here.
