Equally, East Devon is full of independent shops, artists, and local farm shops producing and selling a wonderful array of produce. We even have our own vineyards in this part of the world. It’s worth mentioning that, the Farm Shops around here have well-stocked delis, bakeries, in-house fishmongers and butchers. Equally, both Darts Farm and Greendales do excellent takeaway fish and chips, too!
The closest Farm shop is Knights Farm Shop.
Knights Farm Shop is a small family-run farm shop, selling their own and locally sourced, quality produce from artisan suppliers. As livestock farmers, the meat in the shop is all born, reared and grass-fed on the farm. Not to mention, keep it local and you will be buying straight from the producer!
