Ditchford Mill was bought by David & Gill Graham in 1977 when David gave up flying for British Airways in favour of the country life, producing quality assured pigs for J. Sainsbury.
In June 2003 Gill began to make meals and pies to sell at local W.I. markets, effectively starting Simple Suppers. This enabled direct marketing of their carefully reared pork to the public, exploiting the natural flavour & texture of fresh, stress free pork.
Since then, Simple Suppers has gradually grown to become a well known & respected supplier of the highest quality meat products to both the local catering & retail trades.
The product range has also grown to embrace vegetarian food, snack products & desserts.
A butchery was added to ensure consistently high quality from local sources, pigs from our own farm, slaughtered only four miles away, beef from local farms, and, where possible, vegetables grown within a 10 mile radius.
Our butcher ensures that all the meat used at Simple Suppers is of the highest quality, prepared from prime cuts. We only use ingredients of the highest quality in our pies & ready meals.
Although the business is growing, we are still a very small family company with a small workforce. This enables us to maintain a well monitored and personal service to all our customers whereby it is always possible for a customer to speak to the people preparing their order.
