At Quex Foods we are passionate about food.
We produce a growing range of local produce including an Extra Virgin Rapeseed Oil and an Extra Virgin Sunflower Oil, both of which are grown, pressed and bottled on our Quex Park estate in East Kent.
Quex Park is a unique country park of 250 acres on the Isle of Thanet set within an estate of 1800 acres around Birchington, Acol and Richborough. The Park is an oasis of parkland and trees in a Thanet landscape of open topography and urban development. Within the Park is Quex House built in 1805, a bell tower (Waterloo Tower) built 1819 with its extremely rare secular peal of 12 bells.
However the jewel in the crown is the Powell-Cotton Museum, which primarily contains a taxidermy collection of mainly African wildlife, ethnographical exhibits and many other items of cannon, weaponry, porcelain and fine furniture and much else besides. Its natural history collections are of world-class importance as a scientific resource. The Museum as well as Quex House and Gardens are open to the public.
Within the grounds there is also a stunning wedding and functions restaurant.Like many traditional country estates, the profitability of farming alone was not able to provide for the upkeep of the various historic buildings and parkland. As a result the Estate has diversified its many redundant outdated agricultural buildings.
