Home-made using home-grown. Staying true to our roots and keeping it in the family.
Home Farm is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall and the farmhouse at Farrington’s is home to Andy & Tish Jeffery and family of four who moved there in 1989. Andy took over the farming in 1992 from his dad who had held the tenancy since the 1960′s, although Andy’s skittle mates would now call him a shopkeeper rather than a farmer!
The Farm is surrounded by 400 acres of Gert’s lush Somerset countryside in which we grow wheat, maize and grass to feed the animals, and 60 acres of organic land on which we grow vegetables, which are sold in our shop and cafe.
Staying true to our roots, we always believed that a real farm shop should focus on selling the best seasonal produce and making home-made goodies from whatever we could grow on the farm. At Farrington’s our ethos is about just that.
When the doors of our first shop were opened in 1991 it sold a few potatoes, carrots, cakes and a few jars. Today, it is a award winning farm shop and cafe stocking a fabulous selection of home-made and home-grown produce.
In 2011 Farrington’s were named Countryside Alliance British Champions of Local Food, and in 2012 we were delighted to be awarded FARMA UK Farm Retailer of the Year, for the second time.
