Our meat suppliers are chosen carefully for the quality of their meat and they do a fantastic job. We stock delicious, award-winning bacon, high-quality sausages and joints from local farms. We also have our own farm which we use to supply the shop with beef from our herd of Shorthorn beef cattle. The cows are grass-fed and well looked after, you can really taste the difference in the meat you are eating.

All of our milk is produced in Northamptonshire and we buy it straight from the farm, so you know the farmer is getting a fair price.

A nice big centre with a lovely cafe (indoor and out), the breakfasts were very nice and apparently they are part of the Monday to Wednesday half price scheme. The Covid distancing was very well organised and efficient. The staff were charming. The main shop is open and the outdoor garden centre.
