Last week I went to E.Oldroyd & Sons Ltd to take some images of the Rhubarb sheds. E.Oldroyd & Sons Ltd are producers and packers of high quality fruit and vegetables. The family having 5 generations of experience in forced rhubarb production and each year tourists from far and wide flock to their farm at Carlton to see the rhubarb growing in the dark being harvested by candlelight. The company has a high media profile, being one of the country’s largest producers of rhubarb. Many celebrity chefs have made visits to the Oldroyd’s due to the resurgence in popularity of this traditional crop. Janet Oldroyd Hulme has become affectionally known by the media as the ‘High Priestess of Rhubarb’ and the company is listed as a Rick Stein Food Hero Producer.
Here are a few pics from the session….
