Experienced salad cress producers

W.S Bentley (Growers) Ltd was established in 1956 as a market gardener growing and selling our own salad produce. We have specialised in growing Salad Cress since 1970. In 2008 we launched our new own brand ...and sow on... to market our new product developments. We grow, pack and wash all our own produce and distribute nationwide.

Salad Cress, Sprouting Mixed Beans and Micro Cress are all grown at our main site at Gomersal, in West Yorkshire near Leeds and Bradford, just off J26 of the M62 and Pea Shoots are grown at our satellite site near Selby.

Best practice

Everything we grow is red tractor assured and everything we pack and wash is BRC accredited.
