Washingpool Farm is not only a farm shop with a huge range of products on offer, from their own sausages, pak choi, potatoes and apple cake to Dorset cheeses, ice-creams, chocolates and ciders from over one hundred local suppliers sourced from Dorset and the South West, including wine from the fantastic Furleigh vineyard, Dorsetshire sauce and bacon and the infamous Dorset Naga (until recently the hottest chilli in the world) all sourced from just a few miles away.
And of course bread and milk are delivered fresh every day (except Sundays).
But is also an eighty acre farm which runs from the farm shop to the river Brit near Pymore. The sandy soil on the top of the ridge makes it ideal for growing vegetables and potatoes. The meadow along the stream provides grazing for our pedigree herd of ‘Red Ruby’ North Devon beef cattle and the pigs help clear waste vegetables and provide the sausages for the shop.
Three beautiful ponds were originally dug as irrigation reservoirs to water the crops in dry spells. They are stocked with fish and are a haven for wildlife. A trail leads from the farm shop to the ponds and customers are welcome to walk it.
The Farmer’s Kitchen is a licensed cafe serving breakfasts, lunches, morning coffee and afternoon tea, using local ingredients and our own meat wherever possible.Available at: Markets, events and festivals, Screen Bites.
