Situated South-East of the town of Shepton Mallet, Westcombe Dairy is a must for cheese, cider and beer lovers. Producing award-winning cheddars and other cheeses on site, the fairly basic but oh-so-authentic farm shop also offers some locally sourced meats, as well as an array of crackers and chutneys to go with your cheese selection.

It’s rurally located and hidden away but worth a trip. You’ll find the staff are knowledgeable and they’re always keen to give visitors a generous taste of any of their produce or a mini tour of the dairy.

Literally just over the road from our Somerset self catering holiday cottages you’ll find White Row Farm Shop, on the edge of Beckington.

Visitors to this Somerset farm shop will be delighted to discover a decent selection of locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as traditionally butchered meats, cheeses and delicatessen items. They also have a café where you can enjoy generously portioned meals made using their own farm produce, along with a selection of homemade cakes and treats (if you’ve got room!).

Outside there’s a play area with a sandpit, football pitch and climbing frame for the kids plus they can get to see the farm animals, something that’s always popular with the little ones.

Word of advice, it’s a very popular place, certainly at weekends - so get there early to grab a space in the car park and the café!

Somerset is renowned for its produce, so it's no surprise that Holcombe Farm Shop is full of local treats. From jams and chutneys to meats and cheese, there's something for everyone. And if you're looking for a unique gift, you'll find plenty of Somerset-made options.

The farm shop isn't just for grocery shopping though. Breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner are all served here. And of course, no meal is complete without a gorgeous cup of Somerset-roasted coffee! Decaffeinated, iced coffee, and milk alternatives are also available and all of our milk comes from Midway Farm, just two miles away.

 Do try one of their freshly baked homemade cakes too (they’re literally to die for!) Gluten free options are available.

You’ll also find the Duke Pub attached to the farm shop and this too comes highly recommended!

If you're ever in the Bath and North East Somerset area, be sure to check out Newton Farm Shop. Winners of many awards including Bath Good Food Awards: Best Farm Shop and Best Local Butcher 2016 as well as Small Farm Shop 2022, it’s a farm shop and café that’s not to be missed.

We found their farm shop stocking a huge array of fresh produce and snacks, and the chefs in the cafe use these ingredients to create delicious dishes. You’ll also find locally sourced wines, gins, beers and ciders available to purchase too.

The food served is always very fresh, seasonal and changes regularly. It's also worth noting the team take care when coming up with new menus for the cafe. There's always something new for visitors to try and the chefs use ingredients from the farm shop to create delicious dishes. The atmosphere in the small cafe is cosy and charming but you’ll find more seating outside, and the farm animals add to the overall experience.

There’s plenty of parking available but the farm, shop and café can get busy even during the week, so it pays to book ahead and/or arrive early.

Based in Pylle in Somerset, Thorners of Somerset is made up of a fabulous traditional Farm Shop, stocking a range of Thorner’s own products and from local independent suppliers. Next door you'll find The Den, a place to sit down for food including a beautifully cooked traditional breakfast.

The Farm Shop also aims to offer environmentally friendly choices including zero waste dispensers  and milk refill stations where you get to fill your own containers and cut down on wasteful packaging.

The team sources locally raised, high welfare meat, ensuring the best possible taste for discerning meat eaters and at a price you might not expect.

For keen vegetarians you’ll be delighted to find out that in 2019 the Thorners ‘Vegan Curried Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Pie’ won ‘Supreme Champion’ at the ‘National Pie Awards’ in Melton Mowbray.  Not bad for “just a vegan pie”!

‚ÄčThe farm shop stocks the entire Thorners range and numerous high quality local products as well as clothing and gifts.

You’ll find Thorners offers a unique shopping experience and takes pride in supporting local producers offering products you won’t typically find in your average Tesco (or Waitrose!).

The farm shop is beautifully presented, actually we think it’s one of the nicest farm shops in Somerset, wait, no, it’s actually bloody gorgeous! From the moment you walk in to receiving impeccable high end service from truly caring staff, it’s unlike any other trip to a farm shop you might envisage. In fact it’s an absolute experience! We love the fact they make it obvious that sustainability is also important to their business, something we really appreciate.

We think you might just find some of the very best produce that Somerset has to offer, meat, bread, pastries and cheese as well as ready made sandwiches and a good selection of biscuits. The shop also stocks beers and ciders you might not find in many other places.

Such a lovely setting, you’ll find them in Hauser and Wirth making it the perfect place to shop for farm produce as well as those extra special gifts for friends and family. It’s so awesome the farm shop has been featured in The Times newspaper too.
