The Thorne family can trace its farming ancestry in Devon for hundreds of years and Anthony Thorne was definitely born with the farming bug. He has a great love of the red soil of mid Devon and the fabulous scenery that he lives and works in.
He started growing strawberries on this site in 1986.The business has since developed into growing a wide range of soft fruit and vegetables over an area of 125 acres in the local parishes around Stockleigh Pomeroy.
Overlooking both the River Teign estuary and the rolling Tors of Dartmoor this fabulously fertile land produces some of Devon’s finest crops of vegetables.
Expertly grown by Malcolm Luscombe and his son Jason they find this hilly terrain ideal and the Devon ‘red soil’ runs in their blood.
An enviable piece of land, but from here, we at Devon Fresh, buy some of the best vegetables all year around!
