Red Star

Red Star

The business was founded in 1988 by neighbouring farmers George Revill of Woodfield Farm and John Bennett of Hall Farm, their families having farmed in Birlingham from 1925 and 1904 respectively.

The original acreage has expanded to include several farms to a total acreage of about 1500. The continued expansion led to the formation of Red Star Growers, sited at Woodfield Farm, to take care of all operations other than the growing process.

The incorporation of other farms enabled the group to form a grower partnership in 1997 which would qualify for EU Government funding as a Producer Organisation. This has allowed Red Star to head towards maximum efficiency and high returns for grower members with minimum detriment to the environment. With the benefit of a 900 square meter fully accredited packhouse and refrigerated distribution area.
