Webbs Garden Centres Ltd has announced that it is the new owner of Millets Farm Centre, in a statement which said:
“We are delighted to announce that we are the new owners of the garden centre at Millets Farm Centre, Oxfordshire which was previously run by Frosts Garden Centre Ltd.
Webbs Millets Farm is our fourth centre taking turnover to more than £30m. Our other award-winning sites are located at Wychbold, West Hagley and Cheltenham.
Webbs remains a family-run business passionate about plants and providing customers with excellent service, advice, and quality products. With our increasing focus on sustainability, we will be stocking our new site with many of our own plants grown in peat-free soil from our Wychbold-based nursery.
Millets Farm Centre is owned by the Carter family. Established in 1952 and originally a dairy farm, the 150-acre site has diversified over the years to become a destination for shopping and leisure attractions.
Ed Webb said; “We are proud to be opening our new site at Millets Farm Centre – the perfect location for us, bordering the Cotswolds. It is great to be working alongside the Carters who share our family ethics, and we have exciting plans in play for Webbs Millets Farm.”
Tony Carter for Millets Farm Centre said; “We look forward to working with Ed and his team, whom we believe will bring a vibrant and exciting garden centre offer that complements our own farm shop, restaurant and leisure activities. We are confident they share our family business mindset and community-focused ethos.”
