Eversfield acquires Dorset Farms
Eversfield Organic Farm has acquired Dorset Farms as part of its plan to expand its product range and offer its customer base an ethical charcuterie option.
The deal will see Eversfield, a family-run 450 acre organic farm near Okehampton, enjoy an anticipated 30% increase in turnover during the next 12 months and build its team to 36 people working across the two sites.
Dorset Farms, which was established in 1984 is situated in Beaminster. It uses free range and organic West Country pigs to provide its products to customers UK-wide through selected West Country Waitrose stores, leading independent food retailers and farms shops as well as its online platform.
Director of Eversfield Organic Farm, Mark Bury said: “The exciting addition of Dorset Farms’ delicious ham and bacon to the Eversfield Organic range now means that our customers can easily order a wider variety of products conveniently and cost-effectively through our online shop.
“As an ambitious business, we are always looking for opportunities to continue making our offering a market leading proposition and this merger will greatly complement the growing range of organic meat, vegetable boxes, dairy, handmade meals and deli items that we currently provide.”
