Steve and Miriam

Here are Steve and Miriam who jointly own this business. Miriam took over the Market Stall about 10 years ago after her parents retired. She has worked on the stall since she left school and runs it like clockwork. She has masses of experience which she is always willing to share with her staff and customer and is the real driving force behind the business. We don’t know where she gets her energy from!

Steve had a very successful career in the Civil Engineering sector but finished to pursue a new career as a farmer about 10 years ago when Miriam’s parents retired. Steve is present every day on our stall in Llanelli Indoor Market but his main role is the running of our farm, preparing the land and growing our crops. He does an awesome job!

This is Philomena, Miriam’s mother, who started the business in Llanelli Indoor Market in 1979. She is known affectionately by all our staff as Ma and is a motherly figure to us all. Although now retired she continues to help out on the stall if needed and has a lifetime’s experience in the vegetable market trade. It can be fascinating to hear her recount stories of the trade many years ago and how it has changed. Although no longer running the business it is comforting to know that she is always available to speak to and learn from.
