ABOUT US

From the Island for the Island

We are a family run business growing specialist and soft fruit on site, situated between Yarmouth and Freshwater. 
Our Farm shop was created to showcase Island products and celebrate the wide range of foods and produce grown here. Historically the Isle of Wight has a rich tradition of food production, farming and horticulture. Our shop brings together under one roof all that the Island has to offer striving to reduce food miles and operating as a zero waste store.

Our ethos is: From the Island for the Island.

WHO IS FANNY?

Fanny’s Farm shop is named in memory of owner Nicola Briggs’ Great Grandmother Nellie Beatrice Salter (1897-1924 ) who was always known as Fanny.

 

Fanny grew up on a farm on Ash Lane, Gunville, which belonged to her parents, James and Emily. The family were very well known locally and they sold their home-grown produce from a cart around the Newport area. Fanny herself tragically died aged just 27 leaving a husband and three children. However, growers genes have passed down through the generations and Nicola herself is a soft fruit grower and keen horticulturalist who fondly treasures memories and stories about her family from the past.

We believe in Sustainability & Zero Waste.

We are committed to zero waste and increasing our sustainability as a retail business, but also with our horticultural practices. We compost all our own waste on site and use foraged seaweed collected from the beach in the winter on our growing beds as a natural fertiliser.

Our ethos is to produce fruit and seasonal veg using organic practices which gives our customers a product that is traceable, ethically produced with a low carbon footprint. 

Our produce is grown on the island and for the island with zero food miles.
