We live near Tudweiliog which is approximately six miles from both Abersoch and Aberdaron, both popular holiday destinations. We soon had to stop fishing ourselves and buy in from local crab fishermen as we were too busy to supply the demand. By the years 2000-2001 we were producing around 8-10,000 dressed (prepared) crabs a year and selling most of them locally to businesses but more and more to people visiting our home, known as 'Selling from the Gate'.
Some customers, who were only visiting the area, asked if we could post crabs and lobsters to them (not something we had considered before). We researched postage methods and options and now have a thriving mail order delivery service.
