Our Farms


In the UK we have farms throughout Dorset and Hampshire and they vary in size from just over an acre to as much as 15acres.

Due to our variable climate, we are unable to grow sufficient quantities of watercress during the winter, so to maintain continuity of supply and keep our UK staff in employment during the winter we have farms in Spain (where we have been farming since 1984) and Florida (where we have been farming since 1995).

When you do pick up a bag from your local store and it says grown in Spain or USA do please spare a thought that it is part of a British business and we do rely on all year round trade. Back in 1880, Dorset Farms wee shipping up to Sheffield and arguably it would have felt like further away to many than we are to Spain today!
