Over 188 years ago in the year 1826 a man named James Dandy discovered the results of growing fruit and vegetables in the exceptional quality soils around the historic city of Chester in Cheshire.
It was in these quality soils that he realised the amazing results in the crop yeild he was able to produce!
The results where so good and so vast that he decided to open the first market stall in the Old Chester Market and sold his exceptional fruit and vegetables to the public and every top hotel in Chester and beyond.
Through three generations and still today, James's Great Great Grandson Adam Dandy, his wife Clare and a team of highly skilled and loyal friends depend on these same quality soils to earn their living.

Many things have changed since James ploughed the fields above, but the family's principles remain.
