Teamwork

Lymefield Garden Centre is made up of four distinct areas of work, Garden Centre, Farm Shop, Tea Room & Landscaping. Each of these departments is customer-facing & requires the key skill of teamwork. We call ourselves the Lymefield team as many areas of our jobs overlap making working together essential. Throughout the year, our Garden Centre is a hive of activity beyond the sales through the till. We host many events for ourselves & for our local charities. These include a Santa’s Grotto, a Pumpkin Patch, Coffee Mornings, Pop-up Stall, Food Tastings & we are always adding more. Teamwork is essential for these events to work as our team is small but very productive. 

Teamwork is vital to ensure that the customer has the very best experience when they visit Lymefield. Working together to solve problems & delivery the very best service every time has always been at the front of the Lymefield Garden Centre ethos.

Continuous Learning

An expectation at Lymefield is that each member of staff will take on training & learning throughout their role, this may involve gaining qualifications, keeping updated with current legislation or teaching our newest staff members & apprentices. Be ensuring that everyone is continuously learning we can expand roles, host different events, & give our customers to best experience whenever they visit Lymefield.

Caring for the Environment

One of the things that staff regularly mention is the beautiful environment in which our place of work is set. Lymefield Garden Centre is placed in the river Etherow Valley with trees, woods & fields surrounding us on all sides.
Coming down into Lymefield from the village of Broadbottom, the sky opens out for our buildings & car park. There are often sheep in the fields for you to admire, buzzards can be spotted flying high in the sky as they hunt for prey & during the summer, there are plenty of migrating birds including swallows & swifts.
To add to the animal spotting, you will also meet our resident dog, Jyp. She is the family dog, living & playing in Lymefield Garden Centre. She is a friendly dog as she always wants to play ball, occasionally asking for strokes & cuddles but mainly it’s about playing with the ball, please!

A walk near Lymefield Garden Centre

Walking around Broadbottom from Lymefield

In Winter, there is no better place for new ideas than by going on a walk outside your door.

At Lymefield Garden Centre, we are lucky to find ourselves surrounded by woodland trails, river walks and hillside rambles which are just waiting to be explored.

Take a walk around the area near Lymefield & there is something rewarding to be found, regardless of the time of year. You can spot fantastic wildlife locally; an elusive deer population, a great bird population and plenty of British flora and many trees. You will find sights of outstanding natural beauty which every path you take.

Broadbottom Circular walk.

This route takes in the very best of Broadbottom, from the lowland areas where we find ourselves here at Lymefield Garden Centre, alongside the River Etherow, up to the higher points where the whole valley can be admired.

The walk starts and finishes at Lymefield.

It begins through the Broad Mills heritage area and onto Summerbottom. 

Don’t cross the bridge, go up the path with the handrail and turn left down Hodge Lane before turning back up the hill into Great Wood.

Under the railway bridge and climb up to Hurst Clough. 

Cross Broadbottom Road and past the new houses on the ‘The Waggon’ pub site. 

Go up the road to Littlemoor Road. 

Cross a few stiles onto Pingot Lane and pass oak trees to Hague Road. 

Follow this road all the way back to Gorsey Brow, turn left onto the main road and go down the hill to Lymefield. 

For full details click here for a downloadable descriptive path and map for this walk – and happy walking!

For more information about the Broadbottom and Tameside countryside, take a look at this helpful page over on Tameside Council’s website. 

From all the team at Lymefield Garden Centre, Farm Shop & Tea Room, we hope you enjoy this walk.

Meet the Meat!

Meet the Meat!

Our Butcher’s Counter is a meat-lover’s paradise! But where does all of our meat come from?

We source as much of our meat as possible from local farms, through a fully traceable supply chain, allowing us to prioritise the quality of the meat and support local farming communities.

Lamb

Our lamb is born and reared on Lymefield Farm and the surrounding hillside using traditional stockmanship methods. We rear Texal crosses – a lean-meat breed that is popular across Europe. Depending on the time of year, we sell spring lamb, yearling lamb and – rarely – hogget. We rear in tune with the local climate, so our spring lamb is usually ready from June.

Pork

Our pork is sourced from the same farm. Depending on the weather, the pigs are reared both outside and inside, providing ample space to explore. When inside, they are bedded on deep straw and have access to the entire barn.

Slaughter

None of our animals travel longer than 16 miles (just 30 minutes) to slaughter and are taken in small batches to keep stress to a minimum. We use a small-scale, family-run abattoir in Buxton, ensuring higher standards of welfare, clear traceability, and lower food miles.
