On The Farm

Cobrey Farms is a family-run business based in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire. Managing crops over 3,500 acres of land, we produce the highest quality asparagus, green beans, blueberries, rhubarb and potatoes. We have an on-site packing house to tailor to customer-specific requirements. Our crop rotation also supports the harvest of cereals, oilseed rape and herbage seed.

We invest heavily in the research and development of new crop varieties and growing techniques. We have pioneered the season extension while increasing flavour, quality and sustainability, and reducing production costs. Please contact us if you would like to take advantage of our innovative growing and packing techniques, which are demonstrated alongside tight operational controls.

We are very proud of our environment within the beautiful Wye Valley, and we use this as our brand for our finest produce. We also host regular visits on the farm, encouraging the education of young children in the sustainability of our magnificent countryside.

History

Chinn family farming at Cobrey Farms dates back to 1925, when Wilfred Chinn took on the tenancy of just 125 acres from Guy’s Hospital. Wilfred’s son, Bill, managed the farm over 18 years, before his son John returned home from university to build the business we know today. Disaster struck in 2002 when fire consumed the potato and onion facilities, but we were undeterred and the site was redeveloped. Onion production ceased to make way for the, now hugely successful, asparagus enterprise. Two of John and Gay’s sons, Henry and Chris, joined the business in 2000 and 2007 respectively, and brought with them a wealth of experience in agriculture and engineering.
