About Us

The company was created by Husband & Wife, Sean & Ruth Burchill in April 1991, after Sean, who had previously worked within the Bristol Fruit Market as a salesman, decided to take the next step and create a shop of his own.

We have always been based in the heart of Nailsea town centre, only moving premises once to a bigger store after a couple of years trading. The shop has grown into a mini ‘farm shop & garden centre’ over the last few years, and has around 14 staff, many who have been with the company for 10yrs +

We pride ourselves on our customer service, and the ability to change and adapt with the times, increasing our product ranges and online shopping experiences when required.

Our biggest selling point is the quality of our produce, which is sourced daily from the Bristol fruit market, ensuring the freshest and highest quality can be passed on to our customers!
