The Ibbotson family have been involved in farming for generations, the current farm near Colton in North Yorkshire was established in the 1930’s. In the 1950’s Derek Ibbotson joined his father to help run the farm and to grow a variety of crops.
Ibbotsons potatoes was founded by Peter Ibbotson in 1982, initially supplying local chefs with specially selected varieties, as the business grew so did the customer base, taking in retail, wholesale markets and food processors.
In 2013 the business was taken over by Ibbotsons Produce, Tony Edwards joined as commercial Director and in August 2014 some of the finest growers in the country joined as investors, giving the business increased capacity and access to a wide range of varieties, many of which are grown exclusively for Ibbotsons Produce.
Whilst the customer base now includes several multiple retailers, we still value our roots working with wholesalers, independent retailers and of course our valued food processing customers.
