Tractor shack café

breakfast, lunch, after school teas and snacks.

You’ll find The Tractor Shack Café at the back of the farm shop, where you can treat yourself to an excellent Coffee Mongers coffee or cup of Teapigs tea, freshly pressed fruit juices, Hooray’s gelato and our famous wonky strawberry milkshakes in the summer months.

Choose a slice of homemade cake from Cotswold Baking, a freshly baked croissant or hot sausage roll from Long Crendon Manor, a mug of homemade seasonal soup or a tasty panini, a slice of quiche, a Ploughman’s lunch or a generous Rectory Farm salad created from plenty of our own fresh farm produce, plus the very best of what else we sell in the shop. We also sell children’s lunch boxes which include a freshly made sandwich, crudités, a chocolate brownie and a carton of fruit juice.

AFTER SCHOOL CLUB: On Tuesday and Friday afternoons during term time we serve children’s meals: pesto or tomato pasta, crudités, a homemade chocolate brownie and a carton of fruit juice for £6.50. Served from 3.30pm – 4.45pm

Produce

The food we serve in our café is the same high-quality, artisanal produce that we sell in the Farm Shop: Eadles Farm ham and bacon in our sandwiches, quality Emmental cheese from Wychwood Fine Foods, and North Cotswolds Dairy milk in our coffees and milkshakes.

We use our own asparagus and broad beans in our salad when in season. Wonky strawberry milkshakes are a firm favourite throughout the year. 

Outdoor seating

We have plenty of outdoor tables in our grassy glade for all our customers to enjoy safely. Please, no picnics – only food purchased at Rectory Farm is to be consumed on our site. 

Pick up a hot coffee, a pastry or a gelato and let your children enjoy exploring our brand new adventure playground. 

Coffee & Tea

We get our freshly roasted coffee beans from Coffee Mongers – a small family business based in Lymington. All our espresso coffee is made to order, and on hot summer days we pour it over ice. For the tea drinkers we serve teapigs Everyday Brew, Peppermint, Super Fruit, Green Decaf – and more.

Cakes

Our cake counter is replenished daily with cakes and slices baked by Paul from Cotswold Baking – a brilliant local and independent producer. ⁠

Paul only bakes with the highest quality ingredients and as much local produce as possible. When in season he bakes using the walnuts, hazelnuts and apples grown on the farm where the bakery is based in Swerford, and our own selections of Paul’s cakes will change with the seasons too.⁠ You’ll find several delicious vegan and gluten free options on our cake board, and you can also buy Paul’s cakes wrapped up to enjoy at home from the Farm Shop.

Raspberries

I love your raspberries, never tasted better! I always pick my own and it's such a delight to be able to go into the field and pick so many. I come out of London just to top up my supply which I then freeze at home. My wife loves the bread and the range of cheeses in the shop.

PYO Opening

We will open for the 2022 season on Thursday 31st March. First up in April our famous Pick Your Own Asparagus fields will open alongside our Rhubarb, followed by our Strawberries in May, Raspberries in June, by July we will have almost all our fruit and vegetables ready to pick. We finish our PYO year with our October pumpkins. 

Plan your visit

Enjoy a family day out at Rectory Farm picking all your favourite fruit and vegetables to take home and enjoy. Remember to bring your own punnets and carrier bags to help us reduce plastic use. Visit the shop anytime to stock up on local  kitchen essentials and all our ready-picked fruit and vegetables if you’re short on time.

Pick Your Own Pumpkins

Our first ever Pumpkin Patch was a huge success, we have sold out so now closed the patch and farm. We will open again for Christmas on the 26th November and for the summer season in April 2022.  

Please help us to reduce waste

Please try wherever possible to bring your own containers and carrier bags when you visit our Farm Shop and PYO. We offer a discount on all our PYO fruit and vegetables when you bring your own container - do good and save money!

Lots of small containers for PYO are better than one large one, as soft fruit will easily bruise and squash at the bottom of a deep container.

Pop into the shop before you start picking so we can weigh your containers for you – we can then deduct these from the weight of your fruit when you come to pay at the end.
