Do you have a farm shop where I can come and buy your produce?

No, we deliver all the produce we sell, either to your door or to a local collection point.

Why can't I just visit the farm to buy your produce?

This is a very good question, and there are several reasons why delivering produce to YOU works much better for us!

Firstly, we have a lot of different jobs to do during the working week, to keep the market garden (and the rest of the farm) running. As well as harvesting produce, we also need to sow seeds, plant out new plants, weed the beds, cut the grass, maintain infrastructure ... the list goes on. So, it's much more efficient for us to try and keep harvesting to one or two days of the week (Thursday and Friday). This also means that your vegetables are mostly delivered on the same day they were picked.

Another very practical reason is that we are quite some distance from the main road, the access to our farm being along a steep bridleway. Having a 'physical' shop on site would therefore be quite challenging.

If you want to visit the farm, you are welcome to come along to one of our open days (upcoming events will be advertised on our homepage). We usually have fresh produce for sale at open days, plus you'll be able to have a good look around the market garden and see how things are grown.

It may also be possible to arrange visits at other times, but please get in touch first!

If you have other questions about our farm or our produce, please get in touch!
