Diamond Anniversary, The Hollies Farm Shop

Diamond Anniversary

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

As you may be aware, this year we are celebrating our Diamond Anniversary. That’s right, The Hollies Farm Shop has been around for 60 years! A family business that has been growing since 1959 where it started humbly as an honesty box on the side of the A49.

#growingsince1959 represents many meanings. The Cowap family has grown; the team around the family has grown; the business has grown; new businesses have grown; Christmas trees, pumpkins, plants and more are still grown on The Hollies land.

Our 60th anniversary magazine is now available with an RRP of £5 which, in a nostalgic nod to our origins, we ask customers to pay their donation into an honesty box built into the magazine stand. All the money collected over the year will be donated to two local charities; St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice and Tarporley War Memorial Hospital.  Both charities offer valuable services to our local community, so help us reach our £10,000 target!

Alexis Redmond MBE, High Sheriff of Cheshire said recently of our Diamond Anniversary;
“From an honesty box at the side of the road to multiple award-winning sites in Cheshire and Scotland. What a great journey of continuous expansion, development and excellence. Congratulations on 60 years of a family business so successfully delivering wonderful local delights to local communities… and supporting such worthwhile charitable causes! Here’s to another 60 years, when our growing family will continue to enjoy and support a great local business.”

Please do pick up an anniversary brochure in store, and please donate to our honesty box. All proceeds will be donated to Tarporley War Memorial Hospital and St. Luke’s Cheshire Hospice. Help us make a difference.
