Your village shop needs you – please show your support

Our Village Shop & Post Office – both open 7 days a week! – plays a vital role in our community, along with our School, pubs, other local businesses and community groups. It helps to make our village an attractive place to live.

But like all small village shops, it needs the support of the village community.

So please show your support and pop in regularly for all you need plus a catch-up with Sylvia!

Where else could you find a shop, Post Office, dry cleaning service and Avon Representative all under one roof?!

Thank you Surlingham.

Jack be nimble…


I know you will be happy to hear this. I will keep it quick this week. No essays, no long drawn out stories for you to wade through, no fascinating facts about the only way to cut a diamond. Although, something really interesting did happen to me this Wednesday as I was…. Blah Blah Blah Blah

Right, now to the nitty gritty. Our wonderful beef will be available fresh until tomorrow so be quick if you wish it that way. However, it shall be frozen after that and all you have to do is defrost it to get that same beautiful beef. Though I am sure I don’t need to tell you how to defrost something. (You put the said frozen item under your hat and stand on your head for 2 hours singling ‘she’ll be coming round the mountain backwards).

The fillet, the rump, the serloin, the minute steaks, mince, rib eye are all absolutely delicious.

We have lots more in the freezer in the form of fish, lamb, chicken, pork, ice cream, ready meals, frozen from fresh bread and pasties etc. Our double yolkers are back as they were very popular. Cake, chocolate, salads, free plums and apples and pears… yes… free. Cucumbers that are so fat you would not think them cucumbers, but oh so tasty and a million other new things. The shop is, brimming, but be quick.

Kindest regards as always from the farm

We have fish in now in various cuts and forms, sausage meat, chicken and much more.

We will also have new coffee in this weekend to try in the shop or take away. So really, we shall simply say we shall hopefully see you this weekend.

Kindest regards as always from the farm
