We've been growing, packing and processing onions for over 40 years. We live and breathe onions, shallots and garlic and believe that to be the best, you should stick to what you know; and we certainly know our onions.

Our family values are key to our success as they really get the best out of our team. We combine those values with a can-do attitude and the foresight to look forward and address future challenges which helps us lead the market in the world of onions and garlic.

Where is all began

The late Gilbert Oldershaw MBE began farming in South Lincolnshire in 1948 with his brother, Henry. The jointly owned company of H. & G. Oldershaw Ltd. was split up in 1983 and Oldershaws of Moulton Ltd. was created by Gilbert with his son, Robert and nephew, John Grimwood. We grow around 150 hectares of onions and shallots for Moulton Bulb and Goldwood Moulton along with 80 hectares of processing and packing potatoes. Carrots and cauliflower are also grown for the packing and processing markets along with traditional Lincolnshire crops of winter wheat, peas and sugar beet.
