The Best British grown Apples and Pears.
We're still owned and run every day by the same family, father to son, father to son, always shoulder to shoulder. We are proud of being British, passionate about our Kent countryside roots and proud of the family values that have stood us well, while standing the test of time.
Founded in 1947 by Arthur Conference Goatham, our family business is now run by his son Clive and grandson Ross. In the last 25 years the business has gone from two farms, to farming over 2,650 acres of top fruit across 27 farms. We work directly with our partner customers and with our partner growers, currently we directly market some 4,650 acres worth of orchard fruits. We are an innovative and dynamic family business that is investing in our future through research and development, expansion and in our fantastic team. We are proud to call Sainsbury's our partner and we are developing close working relationships with a number of other retail and food service customers. In simple terms we grow 1 in every 4 British apples and 1 in 3 British pears eaten in the UK each year, that simply means each year we produce 200 million apples and 50 million pears. Our partnerships have been consistent and critical part of our business growth; we now have direct relationships and support growers with agronomic and technical support services.
We Grow and directly manage a quality range of 12 delicious varieties of apples and 3 juicy varieties of pears, varieties from the Great British Cox and Bramley to the widely recognised Royal Gala and Conference Pears. This includes developing unique and exclusive varieties such as Zari for the discerning UK retailers, we feel we are ready to explore partnership opportunities in international markets.
