HONEYTYE
Who We Are

Back in 1948 Bill and Devora Peake bought Honey Tye Farm from the War Agricultural Executive Committee, almost doubling the size of the couple’s original Hill Farm in Boxford. Bill and Devora tried their hands at many things, including pigs, organics, and even a school for organic husbandry, before settling on fruit and horticultural production.

Honey Tye Farm ended up becoming the location of 4 reservoirs, utilising the winter rainfall flowing down Sower’s Brook, which is the centre of our irrigation system (and at the time, was the largest private system in Europe).  

Honey Tye is the Peake family’s largest constituent farm. We now farm around 300 hectares of hand-picked fruit and asparagus on our two sites in Suffolk and Essex, on the edge of the Dedham Vale and Stour Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A note from Robert Rendall, 3rd Generation Family Director
“We created Honey Tye in answer to more and more calls from local customers to supply our excellent quality produce. Due to the proximity of the farm to our selected East Anglian customers, buyers can be sure of eating the best quality fruit. It is at least one, if not two, days fresher than fruit bought in the supermarkets or on the market!”

Honey Tye launches a brand new website to showcase fresh fruit offering

Family-owned fruit supplier, Honey Tye has launched a new website in answer to calls from customers to supply high quality produce to more customers.

Run for over three generations by the Peake family, Honey Tye is one of the best and most sustainable horticultural farms in the UK. The company is dedicated to utilising the latest fruit varieties and growing practices from around the world while staying true to its traditional farming techniques.

The farm was started back in 1948, when owners Bill and Devora Peake bought the land from the War Agricultural Executive Committee, almost doubling the size of their original farm in Boxford. After settling on fruit and horticultural production, Honey Tye Farm focused production on its apple orchard and rapidly grew from there. The supplier now produces a wide selection of fruit, such as strawberries, raspberries, cherries, and rhubarb, along with asparagus at the start of the farming season.

As the Peake family’s largest constituent farm, Honey Tye now produces around 300 hectares of hand-picked fruit and supplies it to retailers and caterers, including the East of England Co-op, who are looking for fresh quality produce that can be delivered to market quicker than traditional supermarkets and markets can provide.

Farm fresh fruit now available to buy at East of England Co-Op stores

Honey Tye Farm’s fresh fruit is now being stocked at 21 East of England Co-Op shops.
The Farm, which has been family owned and run for over three generations, is currently supplying strawberries and rhubarb to stores in the Essex and Suffolk area with plans for more varieties of produce to come.
Run by the Peake family, Honey Tye is one of the best and most sustainable horticultural farms in the UK, utilising the latest fruit varieties and growing practices from around the world, while staying true to its traditional farming techniques. The Farm’s strawberries and rhubarb are grown using a variety of techniques including glasshouses (which are heated using woodchip from the company’s own local and sustainable wood sources), and floricane, primocane and long cane production to ensure only the very highest quality.
Honey Tye’s produce is delivered direct to stores, ensuring that customers get the freshest fruit available. In most cases, the fruit is picked, packed and in stores at least one, if not two, days quicker than the typical fruit found in shops or at the market.
The partnership between Honey Tye and East of England Co-Op forms part of the supermarket chain’s award-winning Sourced Locally initiative, which works with over 100 supplier partners who stock shops with over 3,500 different products from fruit and vegetables, to meat, fish, pies, and fruit juice.
