Gaskains Ltd has existed in one form or another since the turn of the century, originally farming on sites at Dargate and Great Chart. More latterly (the early 1930’s!) the business transferred its attention to the current site in Selling.
The current management team is led by Chairman Charles Gaskain and Managing Director Mark Gaskain, representing the 3rd and 4th generations of the family to farm in Selling.
Although originally established as a hop and top fruit enterprise, hops are no longer grown and now the business specialises in growing and packing apples and pears (Top Fruit), strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and gooseberries, (soft fruit) and plums (stone fruit).
The Company supplies its produce primarily to the supermarkets and other multiple retail outlets. It has an enviable reputation within the industry for producing high quality fruit.
