Simper's Silver Harvest



To aid householders during lockdown we are providing a box delivery service of locally caught fish to homes within a half hour drive of Woodbridge.

Supply is strictly limited to a first come first served basis of whatever we are able to catch which is likely to be Dover Sole, Skate (wings), Whiting, Bass and Rock Salmon.  

About Simper's Silver Harvest LLP

A Family Partnership

Simper's Silver Harvest LLP is a partnership of Robert Simper, his son Jonathan and his son Harry operating on the Suffolk Coast. Jonathan and Harry are both qualified commercial boat skippers and Harry, one of the youngest qualified skippers on the East Coast, was awarded Young Fisherman of the Year 2015 for his commitment and achievements in the profession.


Our boats go out for 8 – 12 hours landing the freshest Suffolk day boat fish such as Cod, Skate, Crab, Lobster, Herring, Bass, Dover Sole, Plaice and Flounder. This fish is mainly sold in bulk to merchants and at the local fish markets.


We are the only mussel producer in Suffolk and one of only two oyster producers. Our mussels and oysters are harvested all year round from our base on the banks of the river Deben near Woodbridge. We sell mainly to wholesalers but we do supply to local restaurants and pubs if the orders are large enough and the delivery works with our existing round.


Our home delivery service has proved so popular

we have taken the decision to continue long-term!




to  provide an extra service to our customers...

Home Delivered Veg Boxes

fresh ~ seasonal ~ locally grown

These will contain produce from local farmers and growers in and around Ufford, Newbourne, Capel St Mary, Ramsholt and Huntingfield and wherever possible featuring organic produce


There are two sizes of box.


A £17 box, suitable for two people .

A larger £25 box suitable for families.


To ensure we have the best of what’s in season, contents will change on a weekly basis but staples such as Potatoes, Eggs, Mushrooms and carrots will continue for the majority of the year and then what is most fresh and in season will change as the weeks go on. For most of the time the produce supplied will be harvested the day before delivery so from time to time some items may need to be substituted, as they may not be available on the delivery day.


We want to thank all our customers for your loyalty and support in the last three months during which difficult times we have built this entirely new home delivery service from scratch and enjoyed being able to provide a worthwhile service.



We will be fishing with our trawler the Diana May from the Deben and going out to sea daily as weather permits. The fish will be landed at our remote riverside farm where we have facilities to chill and pack our catch. We will then deliver in our own chiller vans with our own staff. The fish will be ready to eat and/or freeze at home on the day of delivery.

Fishing is seasonal, and exactly what our catch will be is unpredictable but at this time of year we would expect to be catching .

Those who register for this service will receive regular updates regarding the produce have available and our delivery schedule. This is a "fixed menu" system we are unable to cater for specific requirements. We will put together standard boxes. The contents of the boxes will vary depending on season and our catch. We will tell you by email as far as possible what is included and give you a chance to email us back to place an order. If we can meet your order we will invoice you by email so you can pay online. Once paid, we will make delivery. Our drivers cannot stop at the door or take money at the door, they must leave the box and go.
