100 Years Of Harts!

2019 marks a very special year for us here at Harts Of Stur as we celebrate our centenary. It has been 100 years since Walter Hart, great-grandfather of our current Managing Director, Graham Hart, and Commercial Director, Johnathan Hart, established his own blacksmith business in Sturminster Newton, where we are still based to this day.

To celebrate the long and vibrant history of our independent, family business we are running a number of events and promotions throughout the year, revolving around three main themes, each telling part of the Harts Of Stur story.

Get to know more about us as a business, our history and our people as we walk you through 100 Years of Harts!


To celebrate our Centenary year we are telling the story of Harts Of Stur through food. See below for the themes we are running, as well as the corresponding events.
