The Hobson family have been farming in Crockey Hill since 1847. With every generation their family farm has developed and evolved from the crops and livestock farmed to the huge advances in agricultural machinery. The family farm has developed through the generations to become the business it is today.
Rodger joined the family business in 1990 and learnt the art of growing great carrots from his father. Many years of being passionate about providing top quality carrots and excellent customer service mean that Hobson Farming is now the UK’s largest grower of carrots for the processing market.
Behind the carrot scenes the farm also has a strong arable business farming land at home just south of the historic city of York and also on the prestigious Escrick Park Estate.
