At The Royal Cheshire County Show, we are firm believers in supporting local businesses, be it makers, producers or distributers. This year, we will be welcoming Cheshire-based business Groobarbs Wild Farm, who have 50 crops across 2 sites; at their original farm in High Legh and their 60-acre growing farm in Great Budworth. All their crops are grown to be delivered in veg boxes across Cheshire and the North West.
Established in 2013, the husband and wife team, David and Rebecca Fryer are celebrating Groobarbs’ 10 year anniversary this year. Initially the business started out growing carrots, potatoes and onions which were sold loose at local markets in the area. In November 2013, Groobarbs acquired their first veg box customers and grew steadily, growing more vegetables each year. They now grow over 50 different types of fruit and vegetables across the two farms, all of which delivered locally to families in a ‘Groobox’. Buy your programme now to ensure that you don’t miss the Groobarbs stand where there’ll be a display of their wonderful veg boxes.

Field Kitchen’s Head Chef Mark Price will be joining our Food Live Theatre where he’ll be using fresh vegetables from Groobarbs Wild Farm to cook up a seasonal storm, giving a glimpse of some of the dishes are served at the restaurant. Find out more about Mark Price by clicking here.
“We really enjoyed attending the Show last year with our team and veg box display, talking all things veg. This year we are returning with a bigger and better stand, and our Head Chef Mark Price will be appearing on the food stage across both days of the Show, which is a really exciting opportunity for Mark and the rest of team to showcase exactly what we grow and cook on the farm.
We’re really excited to be attending the Show this year with not only our veg box display but our Field Kitchen Head chef as well.”
