About Us

A family business

Thousands of businesses have been closing all over the UK in the government’s effort to curtail the spread of Covid 19, and the hotel and leisure industry is one of the biggest casualties.  Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf, Spa & Lodges has had to temporarily close as a result.

However, the Peake family who owns the hotel has also been growing and marketing their apples, soft fruit and other fresh produce to customers for over 80 years from their neighbouring Boxford Farms in Suffolk.  At various times during this period – which included WW2 - they have had to be resilient and resourceful, and have managed to overcome significant challenges in the fruit and farming industry by diversifying into fruit juice processing – inventing Copella apple juice in the early 70s - and creating golf courses nearly 50 years ago.

Supporting our community

As a family farming business, we have been growing and supplying produce from Boxford Farms for over 80 years. We also understand the importance of supporting the local community and we are using our resources in any way we can to assist you during this very difficult period.
We have therefore introduced a takeaway food service for our local residents, and can now provide you with a wide range of fresh produce, groceries and delicious frozen ready meals created by our chefs here at SbN. There’s even a takeaway Afternoon Tea.
