The Peake Family have been growing in excess of 20 varieties of traditional English apples on their 250 acre orchards, in the midst of the Suffolk countryside, for over 60 years.
In the 50's and 60's the Peake family supplied prestigious London Stores and Hotels with fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy products and they soon built up a reputation for producing top quality wholesome food. They were also founder members of the Soil Association and as pioneers of this movement, grew a wide variety of organic fruit, cereals and vegetables.
