If you're in the area to visit the impressive land sculpture at Northumberlandia or the market town of Morpeth, pop into this super farm shop and cafĂ©. It is largely supplied by the family farm, where home-grown is the buzzword. â€śIf we donâ€™t produce it we know someone local who does,â€ť says farmer Ian. The shop is stocked with Northumberland produce, from cheeses, jams, fresh bread and farmhouse cakes to home-reared meat. The sausages are excellent; collect a cool box to take some on your trip.
The coffee shop serves honest, home-cooked breakfasts, pies of the day and fresh sandwiches. Kids' lunch boxes are available, and children love the play area with its sandpit, ride-on tractors and visitable animals. Catch Ian at the right time and you might even be able to feed the animals or look for some eggs.
If in a rush, order ahead and your groceries will be ready for you. EV chargers at the local fuel station make this a great place to fill up while you recharge. Dogs are welcome in the outdoor courtyard seating area.
