Bennetts Farm Shop, near Tetbury

The first self service farm shop of its type in The Cotswolds, celebrating the best produce from the area!

Stepping inside Bennetts Farm Shop reveals a treasure-trove of locally produced food and drink. Upcycled furniture showcases the selection of breads, vegetables, kitchen staples, a selection of sweet and savoury treats as well as unique products to elevate home cooking. There is also an abundance of local meats, dinner items, ice creams, dairy products and so much more in the chilled section.

The shop was opened in March 2022 by local farmers and entrepreneurs Tara and Simon Best. After exploring diversification and with a growing ambition to sell meat from their own herd of 100% grass fed Aberdeen Angus cattle directly to the public, they converted a barn on their farm just outside Leighterton, near Tetbury.

With the initial farm shop offering based on refrigerated and ambient self-service vending machines, the venture was an immediate success and popular with both local people and tourists.

As Bennetts Farm Shop approaches its second birthday, it’s more popular than ever before. Open from 8am to 6pm seven days a week, its popularity has seen Simon and Tara switch to a new self-service model that allows them to increase stock on the shelves at any given time. That growth, which the Bests are quick to point out exceeded even their wildest expectations, has also uncovered a need for more space.

The Bennetts Farm open day will take place on Saturday the 30th of March, with the celebrations kicking off at 12pm until 4pm. The open day is free to attend, and visitors will be treated to tours of the farm, free samples of local produce, an Easter egg hunt, a raffle with three hampers as prizes and a BBQ serving their own 100% grass fed Aberdeen Angus beef. There’s plenty of free parking, and with Westonbirt Arboretum and other attractions on the doorstep, it’s the perfect way to spend some of the long weekend. Learn more via their website.

It is the first self-service farm shop of its kind in The Cotswolds, and not only celebrates the very best that Gloucestershire and the surrounding counties have to offer, but offers a truly unique, enjoyable shopping experience, unlike anything else you’ll find in the county.

In the shop, you’ll find their very own grass-fed Aberdeen Angus beef, which is reared from start to finish by the couple at Bennetts Farm, as well as pork, dairy, local meats, kitchen staples, seasonal delights and on-the-go sweet and savoury snacks. There is also a milk vending machine with freshly pasteurised whole milk from neighbouring farm The Leighterton Dairy, as well as syrups to make milkshakes and a self-service coffee machine.

The shop is entirely self-service, with all of the machines accepting card payments only. Situated on a quiet lane, there is parking as well as outside seating to enjoy the beautiful view and the peace and tranquillity that the location has to offer.

Bennetts Farm Shop is open 7 days a week, from 8am-6pm.
