Our reception building also houses Fieldfare Café and Shop (named after the birds which feed on the farm in the winter). We stock a selection of dried foods, dairy items and meats, and we use local and Organic suppliers where possible. We also display local arts and crafts, such as felt kits and ceramics. During holiday periods and weekends the farm shop is open from 9am – 5pm (later on a Friday and Saturday). Outside holiday periods we keep less stock and the times vary, but the shop is usually open for at least a couple of hours each day.
Featured Local Suppliers
Our milk comes from Woefuldane Dairy in Minchinhampton, which is just across the valley from us. We stock Woefuldane milk in the shop and use their Organic milk for our teas and coffees. Winstones also use their milk to make their ice creams (also available in the shop).
Woefuldane is a true family business, with mum (Melissa on the left), dad, and two children involved in the farm and dairy. Their cheeses frequently win awards and accolades. The dairy herd is allowed to graze on Minchinhampton common in the summer.
You can find out more about Woefuldane by visiting their website.
We stock arts and crafts from local craftspeople. These include felted children’s boots and home felting kits from Sophie Buckley. Sophie studied Contemporary Crafts at Falmouth University, and now works as a Craft Tutor in Stroud. Her kits include everything you need to make your own felt animals.
We hope to offer craft sessions with Sophie soon. Craft sessions will focus on needle felting which is based on the flora and fauna found onsite. Please check our events calendar, or use the search bar, to see whether we have anything lined up.
Our bread is now delivered by Salt Bakehouse, based just down the road in Stroud. Salt have recently won numerous awards for their bread, including Baker of the Year from the Baking Industry Awards.
