Celebrating the best of Surrey produce, here we pick a selection of the freshest farm shops found down our county’s winding lanes

Butchers Hall & Country Grocer, Forest Green 

Next to the popular Parrot Inn, in the village of Forest Green, you’ll find the Butchers Hall & Country Grocer. The family who own the pub began farming in the early 90s, on a mission to serve locally and ethically reared meat. Here you’ll also find all the accoutrements you could possibly wish for.

Crockford Bridge Farm, Addlestone

Paul and Caroline Smith have farmed at Crockford Bridge in Addlestone for over 25 years. They grow more than 20 different crops of fruit and vegetables for their pick-your-own and farm shop. Formerly known as Pyles Farm, the estate was once owned by the Locke-King family of Woburn Park and Brooklands fame.

The Farm Shop, Lyne

Flower Farm Shop, Godstone

Opened in 2003, Flower Farm Shop expanded an already thriving traditional mixed farm. Farmed by the Deeley family since the 1970s, they rear pigs, chickens, turkeys and sheep. Flower Farm has also offered pick-your-own crops since 1975, there’s a lovely tea room and Godstone Vineyard can be found next door.

Garsons Farm Shop, Esher

The biggest pick-your-own farm in the country, Garsons has always championed local food and, wherever possible, produce for their farm shop is sourced from growers in Surrey and the surrounding area. As well as winning best farm shop and independent retailer of the year at the Surrey Life Food & Drink Awards 2015, they have recently opened a new restaurant.

Winterdown Road, Esher KT10 8LS

Kingfisher Farm Shop, Abinger Hammer

Most famous for its home grown watercress, this family business has been growing this uniquely English product at Abinger Hammer since 1854. The Farm Shop has become an increasingly important part of the business and the former watercress shed became the present shop in 1999.

Abinger Hammer, near Dorking RH5 6QX

Tel: 01306 730703 Web: kingfisherfarmshop.com

 

Priory Farm Shop, South Nutfield

A regular Surrey Life Food & Drink Awards finalist, Priory Farm Shop is a treasure-trove of beautiful produce and unusual items. Bought by John and Wendy Shinner in 1957, it was a traditional working farm until 1992 but, now run by their son Nic, has since added many strings to its bow. One of the county’s must-visit destinations, they also have a fantastic Discovery Trail to keep the kids occupied.

Sandy Lane, South Nutfield RH1 4EJ

Tel: 01737 823304 Web: prioryfarm.co.uk

 

Secretts, Milford

Something of a Surrey powerhouse, Secretts’ seasonal crops are harvested fresh every day and find their way on to restaurant and pub tables across the county and further afield. This family company was founded in 1908 by Frederick Augustus Secrett, and has been growing speciality vegetables and salads since 1937. As well as the farm shop, which was once the stables for the farm’s shire horses, there’s the excellent Eliza’s Teashop.

Chapel Lane, Milford GU8 5HU

Tel: 01483 520500 Web: secretts.co.uk

 

Shabden Park Farm Shop, Chipstead

Located within a Surrey Wildlife Trust protected site, Shabden Park Farm uses traditional farming methods for the benefit of the countryside and its wildlife habitats. Particularly proud of their meat and tracklements (meat accompaniments), their shop is packed full of locally produced sauces, mustards and chutneys. They host a farmers’ market on the fourth Saturday of every month.

High Road, Chipstead CR5 3SF

Tel: 01737 552744 Web: shabdenparkfarm.com

 

Village Greens, Ockley

Founded in the beautiful village of Ockley, Village Greens also grow their own seasonal vegetables in a Victorian walled garden at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, where you can also buy their produce – as well as that of the many local suppliers they support.

Coles Lane, Ockley RH5 5LS

Tel: 01306 713474 Web: vgfarmshop.com
