About us

We are a family run Farm, PYO, Shop and Cafe located at the side of the Trent and Mersey Canal in Great Haywood – a beautiful part of the Staffordshire countryside.

Our aim is always to source high quality, local food and drink from farms and producers within a 30 mile radius of our home, whilst continuing to produce our own soft fruit berries, garden vegetables and bedding plants right here on the Farm.
Open all year round, our Farm Shop offers a wide range of tasty products for all dietary needs. Our Cafe serves home cooked meals straight from ‘field to plate’; and our Seasonal Plant Centre sells beautiful plants and hanging baskets nurtured in our own glass houses. During the summer months we offer ‘Pick Your Own’ strawberries, raspberries and blackberries, and in autumn PYO pumpkins is an activity enjoyed by all the family!

Family run Farm, Shop & Cafe
Open throughout the year. Monday to Sunday: 9am to 5pm. Please call us or see our website to confirm opening times over holiday periods if you are making a special journey**.
We are a family run Farm, PYO, Shop and Cafe which have been operating for over 35 years.
Our Farm Shop is bursting with fresh, seasonal, local produce plus has a fantastic butchery, fishmongers, delicatessen and bakery. We have expanded our range to sell not only what we produce on our Farm but over 1000 additional products from local and regional suppliers who care about the same things as we do: Sustainable Farming Practises, Quality, Taste and Value for Money!
Our Canalside Cafe is a popular refreshment stop for many boaters, walkers and cyclists who enjoy the lovely countryside, waterways and pathways right on our doorstep. Serving a wide range of home cooked meals and freshly baked treats we can seat 72 customers inside and 40 people outside on our beautiful canal side decking area.

Vibrant Plant Centre
Plants are an important part of our growing programme. During Spring we operate a vibrant Plant Centre full of beautiful bedding and pot plants, lovingly nurtured onsite to give them the best start for your garden and hanging baskets displays. We also provide hanging baskets workshops in which we share our knowledge, skills and plants with our green fingered customers!

Award Winning Strawberries & PYO
We are renown in our region for growing Strawberries and english soft fruits for high-end catering and retail establishments across Staffordshire.
We specialise in growing our Strawberries, Raspberries and Blackberries in a protected environment on raised-up beds called table tops, as with this system we can give our Farm Shop and Cafe customers an extended fresh fruit season (from May to October). This system also makes it very easy for our disabled customer to join in the fun when we open our Pick Your Own activity over the summer months!
Throughout October we open our PYO Pumpkin patch for customers with halloween in mind!
