Our Story

WCF was established over 120 years ago as an agricultural co-operative by a group of farmers close to the natural beauty of the Lake District and whilst the business has grown and diversified over the years the rural Cumbrian countryside remains our home. 

Our own brand products are made right here in the UK, contain only quality ingredients, and sell through our stores to thousands of loyal customers. We stock an extensive range of products aimed at satisfying the requirements of those who live in a rural community or aspire to a country way of life.

Our People

At WCF Pet & Equestrian we believe life is better with animals, and we want to make our animal friends as happy as they make us.

The team are passionate about all pets and have used their expertise to bring you an exclusive selection of high-quality, complete dog and cat food. They strive to provide your pets with a product that they not only love, but that helps to provide them with a healthy, balanced diet.

The vast majority of our team are animal owners and countryside lovers, and together, we are here to support you and your pets in our stores and our website.

WCF is partly owned by its employees and each member of our team has an individual financial and emotional investment in the WCF legacy and our continued success. We work together as a family, with a strong set of shared values, to support our customers and each other.

Our Website

Many of our customers started using our dog food whilst on holiday in the beautiful rural locations surrounding our Cumbrian stores. At their request, we have developed the WCF Pet & Equestrian website to enable all of our customers to now shop online and have your Dog and Cat food delivered direct to your door.

Whether you live local to our stores, or at the other end of the country, we deliver throughout the UK meaning that your pets can enjoy our products wherever you live. We also offer a range of Guides to help you choose the right food for your pet, and regularly post advice on keeping your pets fit, healthy and safe.
