|Brocksbushes Farm, Corbridge, NE43 7UB|
Brocksbushes has evolved over the last 25 years from an acre of soft fruit with a tiny farm shop which was open for 8 weeks in the year to a thriving rural Retail Centre with an award winning Farm Shop, Tea Room, Pick Your Own and Garden/Gift Centre. There is plenty of free parking and we are open all year round seven days a week.
On the farm we have approx 35 acres of soft fruit, which is open during the Summer months. There are 2 acres of Asparagus which we cut to sell in our Farm Shop in the Spring.
The fundamental policy of Brocksbushes is to provide freshness, quality and choice in every department and to give our customers a pleasurable day out whether they are selecting their groceries from our varied and delicious selection in the shop, treating themselves in the Tea Room, picking their fresh fruit in the fields, or choosing the plants for their gardens or gifts for their friends, they all are a part of the ‘Brocksbushes Experience’!
