At a dedicated site in England, we have an in-house Innovation department that specialises in breeding new varieties of berries.
Our aim is to breed varieties that have excellent flavour and appearance, good shelf life, yield and disease resistance than existing varieties. Throughout the years we have been very successful breeding many different varieties of strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.
Our breeder Dave Griffiths has been growing berries for over 40 years! In the UK the term Good Natured describes someone that is kind, warm-hearted and friendly. Our berry specialist Dave is someone we call extremely GOOD NATURED!
Lochy’s family have been growing soft fruit for over 50 years, and Lochy appreciates the importance of development and improvement of fruit varieties.
When Dave Griffiths, breeds new varieties they are trialled at Lochy’s farm in Angus, Scotland, to assess their characteristics on a commercial scale and to ensure that they check every box.
