The Payn family have been growing tomatoes for some 100 years here in the Vingtaine of La Rocque. The business began with outdoor production moving into growing under protected cover in the sixties.
In the mid eighties we linked up with Sainsbury's where we exported all of our locally grown tomoatoes to the UK in which 80% of our production went to Sainsbury's. Fauvic Nurseries have long been tomato growers, exporting the bulk of our produce to the UK market, but external factors resulted in us looking to diversify our business into a farm shop and wholesale outlet.
You will be pleased to know that we are still very active as growers with a range of tomatoes together with salad crops like cucumbers, melons, peppers, lettuces, rocket salad and a whole array of herbs all produced on site in season. We consider ourselves to be the largest herb grower on the island, delivering herbs, salads and other groceries daily to your local retail and hospitality outlets.
Holme Grown was born as a local retail outlet in 2003 from being a barrow on the road, to within the Nursery, now encompassing Green Grocery, Butchery, Bakery, Gardening, Pet, Pottery, Artist Studio together with Hospitality at 'Stanley's' Cafe.
We look forward to welcoming you to what is 'Britain's Most Southerly Farm Shop'.
