22nd October 2011


I was ushered into this place as we passed it today by my grandmother. What an incredible surprise (I’m trying hard not to make a bad joke about it being a Secrett gem…)!
Not only does it sell squeakily fresh farm produce, it’s also packed to the rafters (literally) with really interesting speciality produce. I can honestly say that the variety and quality easily rivals Harrods food halls and even the best supermarkets. It’s an overused phrase but this really is the epitome of foodie heaven. If you like your food and hapen to be in the area don’t pass this place by!
A few more additional points:
1. The Boy and I often bemoan the fact that you can’t buy anything from a farm shop for under £3. This place bucks the trend and is remarkably cheap in comparison to Windsor Farm Shop/Newlyns.

2. I managed to buy 3 different sizes of silver balls from their pick n’mix cake decorating section. Even in Squire’s Kitchen I only found two sizes.

3. It’s also worth checking out the PYO, the veg boxes for delivery and the tea rooms. There’s also been a garden centre/farm on the site for over 100 years. It’s great to see a traditional family business diversifying to keep up with the modern market.
