What’s in our Shop
Our Farm Shop is a hub for local producers, both fresh produce and artisan products, grown and made by neighbouring farmers and friends. We stock a great range of the best local ciders. Our aim is to promote Natural & Healthy produce toward a sustainable rural economy
Our Plant Centre predominately stocks plants grown by 3 local nurseries that we have a long association with. We only stock peat free peat composts that are made by Melcourt Industries Ltd and we stock a range of essential garden tools and sundries.
Our Coffee Shop serves local & homemade produce as well as cooking & baking for the farm shop. The simple menu changes regularly but keeps a few favorites for regular customers. We have a licence to serve alcohol in our premises.
Our Village store occupies a small area within the farm shop. Whether you are a holiday maker or a local villager, you can find most basic tinned and dried goods as well as a selection of household items, including daily papers and even a dry cleaning service. If you can’t find what you want, please ask. (Yes, we stock candles, peas and forks!)

Organic Whole Milk Vending
Milk vending is the epitome of reducing food miles and improving the sustainability in the food chain. Holy Cow’s are milked barely 500m from our farm shop making us not the first but also the closest vending machine to the herd. Baboo also use Holy Cow milk to make their delicious gelato, which we stock in our farm shop. Baboo also use our fruit to flavour their pear and plum sorbets. This makes a wonderful circular economy that is close to our aspirations of supporting a sustainable rural economy.
