Welcome to the WCF Family 


The WCF family is made up of decentralised businesses operating across the retail/mail order, e-commerce fulfilment, logistics and leisure sectors. Originally trading as West Cumberland Farmers, WCF has been in operation for over 110 years and has a strong and rich legacy.

Each business is given significant autonomy to ensure that our customers are placed at the heart of everything we do so that they will want to order from us again and recommend us to their friends and family. 

WCF is an employee owned business and our vision, mission and culture have all been developed to ensure that every one of our +300 employee owners have a unique opportunity to make a meaningful difference to our performance and to enjoy diverse and interesting roles. Our employees share in our success financially through an annual Employee Ownership Dividend and the distribution of free WCF shares, intended to encourage retention and long service.

Our legacy, your future, today and tomorrow
