One of Surrey’s best kept secrets might be a posh farm shop where there’s a walk down the fairy trail

There’s something about buying food and drink from a farm shop that feels a bit more special than just going to a local supermarket or corner store. The product has an extra freshness and quality.

A great farm shop in Surrey is a cut above your average shopping experience and has been around for almost 65 years. The Farm Shop on Priory Farm Estate in Redhill is an award-winning store selling everything from seasonal fruit and vegetables to fish, wine and cheese.

The store supports local agriculture in the county as well as surrounding counties in Kent and Sussex. He also sources cheeses from a little further afield, for example the creamy Black Bomber from Snowdonia and the Ticklemore goat cheese from Devon.
