Pickles of Holmfirth
is based in
the picturesque market town of Holmfirth in West Yorkshire. We are
a family run business with high ethical values aiming to produce
honest, artisan food
chutneys and preserves are made by hand using traditional methods
Our pastry goods and
gourmet ready meals are made by hand using top quality ingredients.
We use our own
recipes to create traditional-style produce with a modern flavour
to suite contemporary tastes. Our produce meets modern requirements
for real food and so we do not add artificial colourings, preservatives
or E numbers.
local producers when we can and we use locally grown produce when
available for both pickles and baked goods and local suppliers for
almost everything. For example, we buy our meat from H Copley, Butchers,
in Golcar, Huddersfield and Coddy's Farm, Holmfirth; we use Longley
Farm in Holmfirth's butter, cream and curd and buy many of our vegetables
from D.A.D. vegetable suppliers on Holmfirth market and Green Valley
Grocer co-operative in Slaithwaite. For seasonal fruit we gather
apples, quinces, damsons, crabapples and foraged blackberries from
the Holme and Colne valleys.
And whilst not
certified as organic (we are not growers) or Fairtrade (we are not
importers) we do use organic ingredients when possible and Fairtrade
suppliers for those items such as spices which are not available
This not only
supports our business ethos but also produces the unique Lily Pickles
We supply direct
to our retail customers at markets and food festivals and we supply
wholesale to selected, quality retailers, farm shops, cafes, delis
etc. A small part of our range is available from the Shop page on
this site, more to follow soon.
Pickles also make a range of baked goods. We now produce
a range of top quality baked goods and ready meals for sale at Holmfirth
Saturday and Sunday markets and other foodie events.In addition
to our meat-based range we are proud to make a range of vegetarian
produce packed with flavour and have now added a range of vegan
