Our Story

35 years ago, we worked with just a handful of regions. Now, we source from over 40 countries from as far afield as New Zealand to around the corner in Kent. In today’s market, oranges no longer take weeks to deliver, and once-exotic mangoes are a household fruit. As times change, so we work hard to stay on top of evolving tastes.

Partnering with the best growers across both hemispheres means that we’re able to meet demand for consistent, high quality fruit throughout the year. And we are continually striving to minimise the distance from farm to fruit bowl so that your apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums or cherries arrive looking as fresh as when they were picked.

“Bardsley Farms have been working with dps since 2009. Through innovation and hard work we have spearheaded the UK apricot and plum industry. Together we have a clear objective to supply the best English stone fruit to the UK’s leading supermarkets.”
