Meet our Farmers
We use the best quality wheat, sourcing much from farmers based 25–30 miles of Chelmer Mills. Many are farming families who have supplied Marriage's for generations.

Harvey Jones

Harvey Jones farms in Battlesbridge, about 10 miles from Chelmer Mills. His family have been supplying wheat to Marriage’s for 35 years.

The farm was started by his grandfather in 1942 – in those days, 26 people worked on the farm, whereas now there are only 3, including Harvey and his mother.

They grow wheat, beans, oats and peas and have a herd of 100 pedigree Swiss cattle. The farm has both Red Tractor and LEAF (Linking Environment & Farming) accreditation, in recognition of their commitment to environmentally responsible farming.

During 2016-2017 Harvey grew a special wheat variety for Marriage’s.

Harvey says ‘Marriage’s approached us - it’s good to try something different and the premium we are paid appealed. I have a good relationship with Marriage’s - we are a family business dealing with another local family business.’

Wheat from Harvey’s farm is used to make Marriage’s award-winning Golden Wholegrain flours. This wheat produces a flour that has a lighter colour and milder taste than regular wholemeal. Many school authorities are now using Golden Wholegrain to help meet the School Food Standards on nutrition – with children preferring the taste of baked goods made with this flour.

‘As a farmer it’s good to know where your crop goes – especially that it’s going into food that children are eating.’
