For friends Laurie and Hayley it was their move to Milborne St Andrew in the depths of rural Dorset that prompted them to launch a business, inspired by a shared love of their county, its surroundings, and of course its food, particularly cherries. Wines from nearby vineyards, beers and ciders from Dorset brewers, delectable cheeses direct from cheese-makers, and world-renowned chocolate, chutneys, and biscuits.  With such fabulous products on their doorstep they decided to make this their ethos, 100% Dorset Only Products.

Cherry Picked Hampers…

Established in 2015, Cherry Picked Hampers work with an ever-increasing wealth of talented Dorset producers to create a wonderful range of unique and tasty hampers fit for any occasion, presented in traditional, hand-woven wicker baskets.  Containing 100% Dorset Only Products, the hampers make perfect gifts for individuals, colleagues, and clients.  In fact anyone who appreciates the fantastic food and drink Dorset has to offer!

Cherry Picked Hampers work closely with corporate customers, offering them bespoke and branded options, and holiday property agencies and owners who want to provide their guests with the holiday essentials, and a little something special to welcome them to Dorset.  They’re able to deliver worldwide, or can hand-deliver to addresses in Dorset.  For the full hamper range and additional information on what Cherry Picked Hampers can do for you or your business, please visit or contact [email protected].

Cherry Picked Hampers are extremely proud to have recently been awarded Best Newcomer at the Dorset Food & Drink Awards 2017.

The Cherry Bar…

Laurie and Hayley, also known as the Cherry Girls, have recently acquired and restored a quirky and unique vintage trailer, which now serves as a mobile events bar serving Dorset drinks and snacks.  The Cherry Bar is used to attend local Dorset events, and can be hired out for weddings, private parties, and corporate events.  A rustic wooden events bar is also available to hire when space is limited but you still want the same ‘Dorset’ experience.  Let the Cherry Girls bring the taste of Dorset to you!
