Some of the best Farm Shops in Norfolk
Published date: April 2019

Today they have become destinations, offering a wide selection of produce from many different local producers, from fruit and veg, meat, pies, fish, local honey and conserves, bread and cakes, coffee, oil, free range eggs and cheeses to local handmade crafts and locally produced beer, wine and spirits. Some have on-site restaurants and cafés, Pick Your Own fields and garden centres and plant sales.
