Once just a shed in a field selling the family’s vegetables, Pearce’s Farm Shop is now an abundant food emporium and café. Browse the shelves laden with Hertfordshire honey, inspiring fresh fruit and vegetables, smoked meats, artisan cheeses, Granny Pearce’s marmalade, homemade strawberry jam and other gourmet goodies. And if you need a present there’s a great gift selection plus cards, homegrown flowers, wine and gin.

Stock up on sensational car snacks from the deli then settle at a table in the roomy, oak-beamed café. It’s been built with the environment in mind and you can watch the cows grazing in the fields beyond the floor-to-ceiling windows. When the weather’s fine, spill out onto the patio terrace and picnic area.

Start the day with a proper farmhouse breakfast, or choose lunch from the menu of freshly-cooked seasonal dishes. Book ahead for three terrific tiers of afternoon tea. Compostable cups and boxes are available if you want food and drink to go, and if you have time to linger in the summer, enjoy picking your own raspberries and strawberries in the fields.
