Boddington's Berries is a family-run business that has been growing and producing fresh produce for over 75 years. Our story began in the 1940s, after the Second World War when the Boddington family started growing fresh produce and flowers in the quaint fishing village of Mevagissey, Cornwall.
The original site consisted of 2 acres of apples, but this soon grew to 3 acres to include flowers, vegetables, and Royal Sovereign strawberries. Back then, strawberries only had a two-week season! During the late 1960s, the crops started to whittle down, and the decision was made to specialize in one crop - strawberries. Since then, the Boddington family has become true strawberry specialists, trialling many new varieties and growing systems to produce the cream of Cornish strawberries today.
In 2001, we began making a high fruit-content Strawberry Conserve using the fruit the supermarkets would not take: fruits that were too small, too large, the wrong colour, blemished, or simply the variety delisted. The response was phenomenal, and over the last 22 years, the sales of conserve have taken over that of fresh fruit. As a result of customer demand, we have extended the range of high fruit content products to include Apple Chutney, Blackberry Conserve, Orange Marmalade, Raspberry Conserve, Red Onion Relish and Strawberry Vinegar, all made without the use of artificial additives or preservatives.
Today, the business remains a family affair and is currently being run by the third generation; Phil and Louise Boddington. We are proud to have served the local community and beyond for over 75 years and are committed to maintaining our high standards of quality and customer service.
We have come a long way since our humble beginnings, and we owe our success to our loyal customers and our passion for growing and producing the finest fresh produce. Over the years, we have faced many challenges, but we have always remained true to our roots.
Thank you for choosing Boddington's Berries. We hope that you enjoy our delicious products, and we look forward to continuing to serve you for many years to come.
