Experienced salad cress growers
Established in 1956, W.S. Bentley is a family business that specialises in growing and selling our own salad produce. We started our life as a market garden growing and supplying salad onions, beetroot, radishes and more to wholesalers before spotting a need in the market to grow salad cress.
We have specialised in growing salad cress – sometimes know as mustard cress or garden cress – since the late 1960s. Traditionally seen as a salad garnish or the perfect partner in an egg sandwich, we are on a mission to show the versatility of salad cress that can be incorporated into your favourite dishes to give them a little kick.
Our crops do not stop there; we also grow a range of other salad produce. From microgreens and salad cress to pea shoots and sprouting mixed beans, we are passionate about growing quality products that taste great and are nutritious.
Salad cress, sprouting mixed beans and our range of microgreens are all grown at our main site in Gomersal in West Yorkshire; whereas our pea shoots are grown at our site near Selby in North Yorkshire. We grow, pack and wash all of our own produce before distributing nationwide. You will find our salad cress in the majority of the UK’s supermarkets.
