As a family we started out growing strawberries, using an honesty box outside a gate in the summer of 1958, before moving onto potatoes in the winter. We also became one of the first UK farms to bring asparagus over from the eastern Mediterranean countries, helping to build on the vegetables popularity.
In response to growing demand, the main farm enterprise gradually expanded its crops. We wanted to focus on growing seasonal produce, which is when the shop was launched.
Over time we began working with other-liked minded food producers and we welcomed them to sell their products from the shop too.
The farm shop has continued to evolve and is now a modern business with a great diversity of product lines, which has been driven, in part, by the current consumer preference which is a need for a "one-stop" grocery shop.
Despite the different shopping trends, we remain true to our family heritage and core beliefs, which is selling the freshest, best value produce that is sourced seasonally and responsibly from other British farmers and local businesses.
