I started Breckland Orchard in spring 2009. I used to work for a large chocolate company, and perhaps had a dream job being able to eat as much chocolate as I liked! I loved it, but when my two children came along I knew that the three hour commute to work was going to be unsustainable.
I really wanted to recreate the tastes of my childhood for my own children, especially the delicious lemonade that my granny Jessie used to make. So with a one and a three year old in tow and in the middle of a recession I started my own company.
It has been wonderful to follow my passion, and do something that I love every day.
We might have grown a little since Breckland Orchard first started, but at heart we remain exactly the same.
We continue to be a committed family business, with no external shareholders. This means we have the freedom to do what we want, which is to make the best tasting soft drinks with no compromise to flavour.
We supply exclusively to farm shops, coffee shops, delis, garden centres and cafés across the UK – or direct to your doorstep if you would prefer! We sell to amazing outlets which share our passion for great tasting food and drink. We are small, nimble and easy to work with. We look after customers as we would want to be looked after ourselves – Simple!
