Simpers of Suffolk
The Simper family grow, harvest and sell both oysters and mussels from the river Deben.
Three generations of The Simper family grow, harvest and sell both oysters and mussels from the river Deben where it joins the family farm where they have lived and worked since the 1940's.
The family has been part of the River’s history for generations and they are passionate about this beautiful place and producing fresh, local, and delicious shellfish using sustainable methods.
Their shellfish are hand picked and transferred by boats ashore to our licensed purification plant, which is next to Their farmhouse in Ramsholt. The shellfish are cleaned and graded before being purified in accordance to latest hygiene regulations. Then delivered to us on a daily basis.
Because of their unique position on the Suffolk coast Simpers also grow some fantastic asparagus that we snap up whenever the opportunity arises.
