About Us

The Pryce family has run a business on the banks of the River Etherow in Broadbottom for nearly 80 years and 4 generations, evolving from a small dairy farm and plant nursery popular with locals to create a thriving Garden Centre, Farm Shop, and Tea Room. Lymefield remains owned by the family with Robert and David Pryce running the business side by side.

We’re proud to say that throughout our long history, we’ve focused on doing one thing really well: providing local goods and services with a personal touch to our local community.


Our Farm Shop source much of its food from local producers and we love to shout out our local food heroes. The Butcher’s counter sources their pork & beef from local farmers in Chisworth and their mutton & lamb from our own flock. Our Deli Counter is bursting with local & British cheeses, meats, and Lymefield products and our shelves & fridges stock the best quality ingredients for your kitchen.

If we can’t source it locally, we source it regionally, with an emphasis on artisan produce that captures the flavour and feel of where it comes from.


The Tea Room sources all its meat, vegetables, and many other items from the Farm Shop to create imaginative and delicious specials to accompany our menu favourites! Our daily specials are created to show the range of our Farm Shop produce while our favourites of excellent cakes, pies and sandwiches remain a constant on our menu.

In our Garden centre, the plants are also ‘local’ in a sense – our selection is hand-picked for hardiness in the face of the worst weather that the North West can throw at us! There is always a colourful display of seasonal plants on outside our doors, with an abundance of plants in our Glasshouse from spring until summer. Our plant range includes acers, fruit trees, roses, buxus, ilex plus many many pots!

We have a well-established delivery service, delivering our local orders ourselves. Lymefield loves to throw an event; it gives all the team great pride to work with local charities throughout the year to host many events at Lymefield to aid our local community.


We pride ourselves on our friendly service, and our whole team would be delighted to hear from you, whatever the need, want, or problem!
