Farm Shops in the Bath area

We are so lucky in Bath to be surrounded by lovely countryside. Increasingly people are looking to branch out from the city and find quality food and produce in country beauty spots.

Farm shops bring a different dimension and contrast to an area. Perhaps the initial attraction is the restaurant/café, often serving a range of food and drinks throughout the day. They offer a relaxed, family friendly atmosphere, opportunity to eat outdoors and are ideal for walkers or those with dogs and/or children.

A visit to a farm shop is a great experience, animals to look at or country walks, good food, barista coffee plus the chance to buy a wide range of local produce.
