Their Woolly Sheep Café is open every day serving freshly prepared food, from brilliant breakfasts to light lunches, or a cheeky slice of homemade cake! The neighbouring Takeaway Counter at their Farm Shop is the place to go for ice creams, slushie’s or hot & cold takeaway drinks & snacks.

Their Farm Shop & Butchery is open daily, 9am-5pm. They are proud to sell their very own Roves-reared beef, lamb, pork & free-range eggs alongside a wide range of other locally sourced produce.

On their shelves you will find a unique range of artisan breads, cheeses, fresh fruit & vegetables, homemade cakes, pies, quiches & much more.  They also have an extensive range of store cupboard staple sauces, chutneys, pickled onions, jams & many more. They also stock a variety of local craft beers, cider, ales, wines & spirits plus high-quality chocolate & sweet treats.  Many products are also available to buy in their online shop.

Their zero-waste pantry, Roves Refills located within the Farm Shop, enables you to shop more sustainably. Just re-use your own clean plastic containers, paper or cloth bags & jars, and fill with a range of pasta, beans, pulses, nuts, oil, fruit, grains, seeds, chocolate & even sweets.

And don’t miss the Moo Station which dispenses fresh milk, locally sourced from Berkeley Farm, which is only six miles away. Just buy a re-usable glass bottle from the Farm Shop, dispense your milk and you’re all set.  Add a flavoured shot & you have a tasty milkshake to go!

Their Gift Shop stocks a varied and unique range of toys, children’s clothing, accessories, gifts & homewares. Many are handmade by local designer-makers & artists.  Be sure to check it out before leaving the farm.
