Why Us

Beth & Simon Heath and Shropshire Festivals

 A bit about us...

Beth has worked with food from the local area all of her working life. She started out working with farmers markets and farm shops and went on to run the Ludlow Food Festival for 12 years before launching the Shrewsbury Food Festival back in 2013. Simon (Sid) has worked on agricultural machinery since the tender age of 16 but has definitely enjoyed the best of Shropshire Ales during the past 22 years. The Shropshire Festivals team chooses producers for the festivals we are proud to bring to the county and so between us we have handpicked some of the best products to bring to you. 

We work with some of the best food and drink producers, artisans and specialists, and it is an honour to give them a platform to exhibit their goods at our Shropshire Festivals. We are happy to say that we have personally enjoyed each and every item that we have included in the hampers and are proud to support these small producers, many of whom we consider as friends. 

2020 has been hard for the local food sector and with not a single festival going ahead, there are so many delights from independent producers that haven’t been able to reach us this year. It is our passion to bring these hampers, to bespoke them to your requirements and make each and every one a joy to open and enjoy.

Shropshire really is the home of amazing local food so what are you waiting for?

We have launched the Shropshire Hamper Company to bring together all of these amazing products. Shop local and support local, and make someone’s day with a gift that shows how much you care.

Thank you for supporting Shropshire businesses whilst helping us to celebrate everything we love about this wonderful county!

What Our Clients Say

Beth and her team provided a contemporary, tasteful and most importantly local hamper bag of produce for our Speech day parents this year. She catered past our needs making excellent suggestions for ideas on branding and extending the Prestfelde community beyond the school building. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and her team.

These goody bags were just what I wanted to say thank you to my amazing team at the Uplands. What was so impressive was from our chat about what I wanted to do to you delivering over a 100 personalised goody bags, was less than a week - I can't thank you enough.
