We are a family run farm that has been growing its own produce for the past 36 years.

It was back in 1983 that we bought this small holding in Great Haywood and planted our first strawberries that spring. From the beginning we have provided soft summer fruits, kitchen vegetables and garden plants directly to businesses across the region, and also to the local community from our Farm Shop – one of Staffordshire’s first!

We have continued to grow and develop our offering to customers over the years, and have since: extended our Farm Shop (twice!); built a new Café alongside the historic Trent and Mersey Canal; developed our pick your own (PYO) experience to include Halloween pumpkins; established a seasonal Plant Centre in our main glasshouse; and created a programme of inspirational, educational events for all the family to enjoy.

We think we have created something special at Canalside, but don’t take our word for it, come and see for yourself!
