Wholesome £8.5m investment for growing fresh farm food business

Keelham Farm Shop has entered into a new partnership with Growth Partner LLP to support the expansion plans of its chief executive Victoria Robertshaw – who remains the majority shareholder of the business.

Our Commercial Property team acted for Santander, who are Keelham Farm Shop's new funding partner as part of its strategic growth plans.

From its origins more than 40 years ago as a small, family farm and shop on the outskirts of Bradford, Keelham today is a significant business that is supporting the regional economy, farmers and producers by championing affordable, local, great tasting fresh food. In 2015, Keelham opened a second shop in Skipton that took fresh food retail to a new level in Yorkshire. The title-holder of more than 60 industry awards Keelham Farm Shop has helped to put the region’s foodie reputation on the national map.

Of the deal, Robertshaw said: "We have a great opportunity to expand our vision for Keelham Farm Shop as a commercial success with a meaningful purpose".

The team at Santander were advised by Manjit Virdee (Partner), Abigail Falshaw (Solicitor) and Legal Executive Kate Fox (Legal Executive). 

Manjit Virdee added: "As always we are pleased to represent the lender and reach such a satisfactory result. Whilst there was several variables to overcome, all parties worked to achieve the set goals. Well done to all."
