A Little Bit About Us
We are a small family business. For those of you familiar with West Cornwall, you may remember Halzephron Herb Farm at Gunwalloe. We were the founders of Halzephron and sold the business some years ago and it is now owned by Roskillys. Our particular interest has always been in food that does you good - "food as medicine" - which is the basis of our current business.
We have six children and it was a huge thrill for us when at the beginning of 2014, our youngest, Edita, joined the business as assistant chocolate maker. She is doing a really good job and we love having her working with us. The family are joined by Donna, Janine, Katherine, Val and Sophie.
The business is based in Trencrom, a hamlet just a few miles outside St Ives. Trencrom is famous for its hill from which you can see both coasts - the whole of Mounts Bay from Mousehole round to the Lizard, and St Ives Bay and Godrevy lighthouse. Trencom is also famous for its huge boulders which legend has it - being Cornwall (!) - were the playthings of the giant who used to live here.
While times remain hard for all of us, our business is thriving, the star being our raw chocolate pie. At the moment we are increasing production, week on week. It is all very exciting. However, although we hope to grow the business, we are mindful that we are creating a unique, handmade product and intend to keep it that way.
So no huge factory unit for us. We are a rural Cornish business who try very hard to offer you a reliable, friendly service and products of which we are proud.
