Westwood & Sons

David Westwood's family farm have been producing forced rhubarb for generations. Their farm is located in Wakefield in the heart of Yorkshire's 'Rhubarb Triangle' where the crop thrives in the sulphur rich soil. The sulphur is said to have originated from the soot of the industry in the area. David harvest's the forced rhubarb by candlelight with the help of his family, especially his son Jonathan. The growth of Forced Rhubarb began in West Riding Yorkshire during in the late 1800s when other fresh fruits were in short supply. It now has Protected Designation of Origin.
