Greendown Shepherd Huts History
Greendown Shepherd Huts Ltd was set up by Harry Long and Richard Hodges in 2017 and initially located themselves in a workshop on a farm in Saltford . Harry is the craftsman who has made it all possible whose skills compliment those of Richard who manages all other aspects of the business with his finance skills. After 18 months on the farm, Greendown have moved to bigger premises in Keynsham where production has been ramped up to meet the increasing demand.
