We opened our farm shop in 1977 and it is constantly evolving to meet our customers needs. Today we have an exciting food shopping experience stocked with our own home-grown produce and wonderful artisan food products. In 2019 we added a Zero Waste area selling nuts, pulses and cereals. We actively encourage our customers to bring their own containers to transport products home from our deli, cheese and help yourself olive bar. We also have help yourself areas for herbs and spices and fresh and frozen produce. We are constantly looking at ways to innovate and reduce our use of plastic in our business. Why not take a look at this lovely video made of the farm shop by one of our customers Hannah who is a super talented photographer and video creator too! You can find out more about Hannah by clinking the link to her website here http://www.funkyphotographers.co.uk/hannah/.
We also have a strong sense of community! From hosting a monthly farmers market to showcasing local producers and holding many events throughout the year. Feel assured that when you shop with us you are;
- Buying a range of foods many of which are local or produced here on the farm
- Supporting the local economy
- Providing work for local community
- Supporting many artisan food producers
Whilst the local food movement is important we also stock a range of delicious products such as cheese and spices that are imported. In doing this we have a large range of interesting ingredients for all cooking styles. Our large farm shop has many discreet departments, which hold an extensive range of food products from different categories from organic chocolate to wild garlic pesto.
