Farm Shop

Opening Soon

Our farm shop specialises in local premium produce. Quality, provenance and sustainability are at the heart of what we do, cutting food miles and wasteful packaging while adding variety and taste.

Our milk, for example, comes from a dairy herd grazing on pasture just across the road from us. We’ve installed a milk vending machine so you can fill and refill your own glass bottles. Press a button to add your favourite milkshake flavour.

Similarly, local suppliers produce our cheese, jam and chutney and our organic eggs are delivered daily from a nearby farm where the hens roam free.

From the seasonal fruit and vegetables, from local growers to the artisan sourdough bread baked in a wood-burning oven not far away, our well-stocked counters show our commitment to responsible sourcing.

Butcher

Opening soon

Alongside beef, lamb, bacon, and other meat, our butcher offers naturally lean and tender venison reared on our farm. Choose from frying steaks, grill steaks, hand-rolled meatballs, hand-pressed burgers, hand-made sausages, mince and diced venison. The meat is prepared as haunch, side, saddle or shoulder, all offering a finer texture than comparable cuts of beef. Our butcher will be on hand to give expert advice on the most suitable cooking methods. 

Centuries ago, a deer farm was operated as a ‘live larder’ with continuous access to deer fed on grass and forage, a tradition we continue today. From farm to butcher, proceedings are supervised by our estate manager Dominic Strutt, a nationally recognised authority on deer husbandry. Under his leadership, our farm has been selected as a trusted supplier to M&S and Waitrose & Partners.

Visitor Centre

Our Visitor Centre has food and gifts to make your visit complete.  With delicious coffee available from our expert Barista, teas, sandwiches, cakes, sweet and savoury snacks, ice creams, slushies and soft drinks. Our Visitor Centre has all you need for a picnic or a little treat! 

In our shop we have worked hard to appeal to all ages and never to compromise on quality. Whether it’s an alphabet book (D is for Deer) a bone china mug or a hand-carved walking stick, every product has been carefully chosen.

Our devotion to deer can be seen across the many deer themed items available in the shop from cuddly Bambi-like toys, jigsaws featuring grazing herds of deer to tea-towels showing venison recipes. 

At the same time, we’ve made room for other creatures that live on our farm, such as badgers, rabbits and squirrels. Along with the birds that soar overhead, they’re all represented on our shelves of toys and furry animals.

Why not buy your beloved pet a treat too?  With pet beds and dog chews, there really is something for everyone!
