Our history

Tommy Topsoil is a local family firm, which prides itself on reliability, quality and consistency. We have been going strong for a great number of years, with our registered company 'Daisy Lea Poultry Farm Ltd' being established in 1961, which makes us 50 years old this year! It was my father, Charlie Denham, who started the business and like the business name suggests, he started out in poultry farming, and very quickly grew and firmly established himself as the largest independent poultry farmer in Yorkshire!

Over the years, Dad has adapted and diversified to accommodate three recessions, economic climates and customer demands to keep our family business successful. Indeed, how we got to where we are today is down to his diversification into worm farming - recycling farmyard manures and waste, etc, to produce pure rich worm castings, also known as 'the worlds most natural fertilizer'.

This brings us back to the birth of 'Tommy Topsoil' (no specific link with the name, apart from my middle name is Tom and 'Tommy Topsoil' sounded catchy!) The business employs 4 family members, with Dad, who also celebrated a special birthday this year, still working around 60 hours per week lovingly caring for our other employees - the cows, pigs and not forgetting the worms!

Tommy Topsoil sits well alongside our other connected businesses which include:
