Tracey has been with us for a whole decade! and is one of your trusted North Coast Account Managers based at our Falmouth Depot.



For those who do not know Tracey well, she is quite the collector of beagle hounds. In her down time she enjoys walking and cycling, especially on the coast from Porthtowan to St Agnes, and embroidery.


The WestCountry Group is proud to be a people business, from our passionate producers and dedicated local growers, through to our drivers and office staff. Thank you Tracey for being such an important part of the WestCountry family, this one's for you.

Why I like WestCountry:

Excellent customer service, prices and delivery schedules. Which of our products best represents you and why?

Potato – Popular, reliable and essential. Dream Job?

Owning a sanctuary for senior and disabled animals that are not wanted. Unusual / interesting fact about me: My charity work with Animal Sanctuary’s in Cyprus including raising money, awareness and re-homing in the UK. I have 2 dogs myself adopted from Cyprus.

If you knew then what you know now what would you do differently? Bought a house in the 90’s.

Covid 19 specific question – what’s the most positive thing you will take away from this time? Spending more time with family and exploring the beautiful county we live in. What's next for you?

Buying my own Camper Van and exploring the UK and beyond
