Our organic farmshop is stocked with everything you need for your stay. Pick up fruit and vegetables harvested from our market garden, meat from our butcher’s counter, artisan bread from our bakery and award-winning cheese from our creamery. Or keep things simple with nibbles from our deli, organic and biodynamic wines from our Wine Stall, and freshly made meals to heat up in your cottage. 

Next to our farmshop discover our home and garden collections where you can browse seasonal plants and stock up on other gardening essentials, from seeds and tools, to planters, pots and compost. Upstairs you’ll find antiques, elegant garden furniture and handmade tableware – unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that will serve as timeless reminders of your stay.

OUR ANIMALS

We always treat our animals with respect. We breed and rear contented, healthy livestock to the highest welfare standards. This includes the largest herd of organically certified red deer in the country, pedigree Aberdeen Angus, pedigree South Devons and rare-breed Gloucester cattle, traditional minority breeds of sheep and organic, truly free-range poultry for succulent chickens and eggs with yolks of deep colour and full flavour. Each year we raise bronze turkeys and white geese for Christmas.

Our animals roam freely on our farm’s organic pastures, and are fed a 100% organic, forage-based diet we grow ourselves. They are allowed to mature naturally at their own pace: chemicals, hormones and artificial growth promoters are prohibited. The routine use of antibiotics, drugs and wormers is also avoided – instead we use preventative methods, like moving animals to fresh pasture and keeping smaller herd and flock sizes.

When our animals have lived their full lives, our high standard of welfare continues with them on their journey to the abattoir. From the lush organic pastures of Wootton, the animals walk into lairage where they feed, drink and relax before continuing into our state-of-the-art abattoir, making the whole process as kind and as stress-free as possible, resulting in tender, succulent, organic meat of the highest quality and taste.
