Springwell Farm Shop Batley Now Open to the Public
“Hello and welcome’’ to the Springwell Farm Shop web site, my name is Janet Carter and the farm shop is the brain child of my husband Garry and I...
Garry and I began farming 15 years ago, we started with a small flock of Suffolk sheep and very little know how and after lots of hard work and plenty of beginners luck and a lot of help from farming friends we progressed to where we are today.
About six years ago after a shopping trip to a large supermarket Garry and I realised that both we and the public were looking for top quality meats, game and vegetables at very reasonable prices, presented in a clean friendly environment that was traceable from the farm to the plate, so the seed for Springwell Farm Shop was sewn.
We decided that home reared meats and locally sourced vegetables along with farm produced pies, breads, cakes and Ice creams and fresh farm eggs were the way forward and so here we are today.
Our shop has a mini bakery where fresh pies, cakes and breads are baked daily alongside a fresh farm dairy ice cream cabinet for those times when the fancy takes you…. And because our grandchildren love our animals so much we thought that maybe most children would love to see and help feed the sheep so we made it possible for you and the children to take a look at our flock of Soay (old English breed sheep).
We have open style butchery so that nothing is hidden and all our meats and sausages etc can be seen being made by our expert master butchers, who will if requested give hints and tips on each meat and cut required. They will also give quality cooking instructions and recommend accompanying vegetables and condiments for your preferred meat. We have a well-stocked deli counter with a wide variety of cooked meats, cheeses and olives with home style relishes and chutneys to complement both.
Garry and I would like to thank you for taking the time to give us a look… Please come along and take a walk round I am sure we will have something to interest you. We look forward to meeting you very soon.
Garry & Janet Carter and the Team
