Investment boosts Brocksbushes expansion plans

Brocksbushes has received a funding boost to support the development of a new 30,000sq ft building it says will create up to 20 jobs.

The farm shop, located off the A69 to the east of Corbridge, will move from 7500sq ft premises to the larger base.

The new site will house a modern farm shop, deli, butchery, café and playbarn.

The current farm shop continues business as usual, selling local and homegrown produce, along with tea rooms, while the construction work continues.

An undisclosed funding package for the new development has been provided by FW Capital using the North East Commercial Property Investment Fund.

Harry Dickinson, Brocksbushes’ director, said: “We’re passionate about the fantastic local produce that is made and grown in Northumberland and the development will continue our ethos of shop, eat, and pick local.

“The decision to expand came about because we are literally bursting to capacity and our current building has been extended multiple times but has reached its limit.

“We’re excited to open in the summer and the backing of FW Capital has made that possible. They have been brilliant to work with, took the time to understand our business, and it’s evident they are passionate about supporting local businesses. “

Chris Dixon, senior investment executive at Property FW Capital, added: “Brocksbushes is a very well-known brand in Northumberland. It’s fantastic to be working with them to support this impressive new development which will futureproof the business for the next 40 years.

“Construction work is well underway with the roofing added last month. Everything has also been designed to complement its countryside setting it the heart of the Tyne Valley.”

The North East Commercial Property Investment Fund is managed by FW Capital and backed by the North East Local Enterprise Partnership.
