Dave is working on putting in the drainage for our butchery area. We are waiting for a scheduled visit from Building Control to ensure all is ok (I’m sure it is)
Simon & I were onsite today to see the steel frame go up. The reality of it all is really beginning to kick in now. I was hardly able to contain my excitement as I watched the crane swing into action! It’s just like one big meccano set!!
A few people have asked us if we are open while our new Farm Shop is being built. The answer is Yes, you can still visit our Egg Shed the same as you normally do
We are now proud supporters of FARMA, the National Farmers Retail and Markets Association. FARMA is a co-operative of around 500 businesses from across the UK that share one thing – a passion to promote food which is grown (or produced) and sold by the same hands. We have just become members and look forward to sharing […]
Our Farm Shop is under way! Day one we saw 14 holes being dug out ready for the concrete pads and bolt boxes to be installed. After just three days we are almost ready for the steel frame which is due to go up next week!
We have been excitedly marking out where our new Farm Shop is going to go. It seems strange that the pegs we have knocked into the ground are the actual outline of the building. Simon has even been manoeuvring the tractors behind the markers to ensure he still has enough room behind the shop to access the barns behind. All […]
Building work for our new farm shop will begin the week of 25th May ’15. We hope to be up and running sometime in September ’15. During the construction period our Egg Shed will remain open. From Monday, 25th May ’15 we kindly ask that all customers use the Farmhouse Gate Entrance (nearest the railway […]
We are getting closer to finalising the build & contractors for our new Farm Shop and hope to start building soon! We are now working on the exciting stuff & sourcing local suppliers for when we open. We are off to the Farm Shop & Deli Show tomorrow to get some inspiration. Exciting times!!
Simon has been busy planting our new hedge against our freshly laid fence! Fingers crossed it will be nicely established ready for when our Farm Shop opens. . . . .
We had a visit from Laurence Robertson MP last week who came to find out more about our plans to build a new Farm Shop. We showed him around and he loved our “Egg Shed” where we currently sell our free range eggs & local produce. It’s great to have so much local support!
We are currently on the look out for Butcher & Deli Equipment as well as Shop Fittings and sundries (wicker display baskets, wicker shopping baskets, rustic shelving units, serving counters etc.). Please contact us if you become aware of a farm shop, butchers or deli closing down as we may be interested in their equipment
Over the next couple of months we will need to appoint a contractor to take on and complete the building our New Farm Shop. If you are interested in tendering for our exciting project please contact us
We have been busy over Christmas! We have taken down two buildings and cleared away a few dead trees to make room for our New Farm Shop. Over the next few weeks we will be marking out where the new shop is going to go as well as clearing away the existing hedges ready so we can replant […]
In between, enjoying our Christmas Turkey and tending to our farm animals we have started to clear the area where our New Farm Shop is going to be built. Have a look at our Farm Shop Page to see what we have been up to. . . .
We are pleased to announce that we have found ourselves a bee keeper to manage our hives and produce our very own honey! We hope to have honey ready to sell in our new Farm Shop when it opens in Summer 2015
