Ben’s Farm Shop

Originally conceived over 35 years ago, when Ben himself sold his homemade sausages at Totnes Market, Ben’s Farm Shops focus on providing ‘good food from good farming’. In practical terms, that means that the produce we sell in our shops and the food we serve in our cafés is sourced directly from the producers/growers, is as local as possible, often organic and always just plain delicious. We stock a range of store cupboard essentials, meat from our butchery, a selection of fruit and veg, dairy products, wines, beers and much more. What better excuse do you need to step away from the supermarket trolley and shop local!
