The Quirky Magpie was established in 2019 by Lisa and Lorraine. They had always talked about a joint venture and when the opportunity presented itself they grasped it with both hands! Filled with lots of joy and laughter their business journey has been both exciting and enjoyable. Starting out on a whistle and a prayer the business has grown exponentially, with 2021 being their busiest year to date. Due to this increase in trading at the end of last year Lorraine became the sole owner of The Quirky Magpie as Lisa decided to step away so that she could spend more time on her farm.
