These are the Doncaster businesses you are missing most during lockdown

Before Covid-19 Nikita worked in retail, as the industry has been so unstable she decided to set up her own small business.

“I have a young family and I wanted something that I could fit around them,” she said.

“I know a lot of people have set up cake and brownie businesses this year but I think mine is different because you can’t find anyone else selling strawberries like I do.”

Nikita says that her strawberries are perfect for picnics, BBQ’s and gifts for loved ones.

She is particularly excited about their new Easter launch.

House of Strawberry will be selling strawberries decorated like carrots laid on a bed of edible soil - perfect for kids.

They will also be offering an Easter basket filled with strawberries with toppings such as Cadbury Mini Eggs and Creme Eggs.

Other toppings available include: coconut, hazelnut, Twirl and Dairy Milk.

A box of six strawberries is £16 and a box of 12 is £26.

Nikita also makes chocolate covered cherries in either dark or milk chocolate for £15.
