The farm shop
Farm to Table eVeryday
Rectory Farm Shop is open April – October, plus a bonus four weeks at Christmas. We sell all our own homegrown produce when in season – including several varieties of our own potatoes – picked and on the shelves within a few hours.
We work hard to source the best quality local products from Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and The Cotswolds. In our fridges you’ll find local meat, pies and sausage rolls from Eadles Farm in neighbouring Beckley village, award winning organic cheeses from Nettlebed Creamery, and traditional farmhouse Cotswold Butter – plus all manner of condiments and cooking sauces, baking supplies, biscuits, pantry essentials, free range eggs and milk.
Our bread arrives each morning from Long Crendon Manor Bakery and Degustibus artisan bakers in Abingdon.
We stock all our own homegrown produce in the shop when in season from asparagus in April to squashes in September. If we don’t grow it we source the very best quality in-season produce from local and British growers.
Our local suppliers are at the heart of everything we do, our fresh meat comes in from the neighbouring village in Beckley. We have chutneys from Oxfordshire and Cotswolds, eggs from Witney, Honey from the bees on our farm, biscuits from Aylesbury, cheese from the Oxford Cheese Company, rape seed oil from the Chilterns and more.
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.
Use our "bring your own weigh station" to weigh your containers before picking – we can then deduct these from the weight of your fruit when you come to pay at the end.
Remember to bring your own 1 litre bottle for milk or buy a Rectory Farm glass bottle in the shop.
Put simply, we love good food. Every single product that hits our shelves has been personally tried and tested by us to ensure it meets our high standards for quality and taste – from figs to biscuits to curry sauces. It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it! We receive regular deliveries from all our suppliers, so all our produce is as fresh as it can be when you take it home.
Happy to help
Our brilliant and knowledgeable team of staff are always happy to help, whether that is pre-preparing an order for quick collection, telling you about their favourite cheese or talking you through the six different varieties of potatoes we grow. We shall always endeavour to help out if you need to order a large quantity of produce or reserve something in the shop to collect – just drop us an email or call us 01865 358309.

We are growing a whole variety from standard orange lanterns to tiny white caspirita and giant polar bears. Sign up for our newsletter to find out the details on when our patch opens for picking.
