Sytch Farm Studios, nestled in the beautiful Shropshire countryside is the home and creative work space of potter, Gill, and wood carver, Jon. Together they make absolutely beautiful pieces for the kitchen and home dining. Celebrated by chefs throughout the country and with a worldwide following, Sytch Farm Studios are incredibly popular on the Festival circuit and we are thrilled to welcome them back to Ludlow again this year.

With all that has been achieved in your business so far, what are you most proud of?

 The recognition we have received for our products from some of the top restaurants and chefs in the country - we always aimed to produce products that enhanced the dining/eating experience and to be told regularly that this is what we have done does give us a buzz.
