Products: Asparagus & Strawberries
Hungersheath Farm is a working 270 acre farm, run by Nick and Helen Furnival, closely supported by their family and team. Both Nick and Helen are born and bred farmers, growing up on local farms. The land at Hungersheath is light and ideal for growing crops (traditionally it was a potato farm) so in 1986, Nick had the idea of growing asparagus – back then a relatively unknown vegetable. They continue to grow it, now on an area of 18 acres, and it is the crop that they are most famous for.

The Staffordshire Cheese Company
Products: Staffordshire Cheese
The Staffordshire Cheese Company was founded in 1994 by John Knox, who had a dream of re-establishing the long-lost art of cheese-making in Staffordshire. After much research and hard work, he began to experiment in a 500 sq. foot unit. His first cheese, “Cheddleton Original” won first prize in its category at Bakewell show in 1998. Much encouraged, he moved to a 2500 sq. foot factory in Cheddleton and was soon producing 10 different cheeses, all of which proved exceptionally popular. These unique cheeses are increasingly sought-after!
