Welcome to Raleigh Seeds

Raleigh Seeds was established by Mark Carter, Steve Mowbray and Robin Kitching in response to Countrywide Produce customer demand for quality seed potatoes, selected from our own growers in Yorkshire and Scotland, many among the best in the UK.

Steve studied marketing at Nottingham College of Agriculture and worked for leading food producers
and distributors, Geest and MBM, before setting up Countrywide Produce with Mark in 2004.

Mark is an ex-farm manager and BASIS qualified professional with 30 years’ experience growing root crops.



About Raleigh Seeds

Robin was born and raised on a farm in
South Africa and studied business management
at Bishop Burton, UK. He spent 10 years potato trading
for E Parks & Son before joining as a partner to engage the next generation of growers.


All three directors own and operate the business from an idyllic offce in Tealby village, supported by Gillian who provides dedicated accounts and administration.


Our location is central to the major vegetable growing regions of the UK. We enjoy exceptional individual relationships with customers all over Europe but especially in Lincolnshire which produces more crops than any other county, as well as Yorkshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and seasonally Cornwall and Herefordshire.


Your team in the field, Gillian, Steve, Mark and Robin
