The origins of our company go back to the 1980s when we started life as Jack Buck Growers on our site near Holbeach, Lincolnshire. We are renowned for our growing of chicory – we were the first people to produce the crop commercially in the UK. We still grow chicory, and have close links with farms both locally and nationwide that supply us with our other specialist vegetables – celeriac, fennel, pak choi, artichokes, peas and beans.
Jack Buck Growers was bought by the UK’s largest independent fresh produce supplier, Fresca Group, in 2007. Since then we’ve grown our business with Britain’s retailers and in 2011 we changed our name to DGM Growers. We have Britain’s biggest chicory growing operation, we grow our own field vegetables, and we look forward to a bright, veggie-filled future!
