History

Cocked Hat Farm Foods Ltd was established in 1972 as a trading company dealing in poultry products. It was started by our Father and has grown from being 2 partners in one small office to an international food trading Company.

Despite the expansion, Cocked Hat is still very much a family company and is owned and run by 2 brothers, Edward and William.

We are often asked about the source of the company's rather unusual name. The explanation is very simple - our father lives on a farm called Cocked Hat Farm. The farm is situated in the Yorkshire Dales, just a stones throw from Ripon, and about 200 years ago it used to be a Coaching Inn with the same name.
