Fruit farming runs through the veins of the Chambers family, who have successfully grown fruit in Kent for a number of generations. Kent’s mixture of chalk, sand and clay soils, together with a drier climate than the rest of the UK, combine to offer the optimum horticulture conditions -hence the ‘Garden of England’ reference which Kent has enjoyed for over 400 years.
The current business was set up by WB Chambers in 1952. Third generation owner and present managing director Tim Chambers took over the reins of running the family’s farms in 1990, focusing on berry, currant and stone fruit production.
Today Chambers Group operates with 5 core divisions: UK Farms, Overseas Farms, Contract Packing, Importing, Prepared (The Fruitery)
