Best farm shops in Cornwall

From the jaw-dropping coastline to eclectic attractions, people come to Cornwall for all manner of reasons. However one of the county’s best gems is undoubtedly the food and, whether you like fine dining in suave restaurants or a pasty on the beach at sunset, Cornwall delivers. 

Spanning land and coast, Cornwall is home to the freshest larder of delectable produce. If you’d like to stock up on some of the best Cornish goodies for your holiday, there’s no better place than a local farm shop - some even hold pick-you-own events so you can choose the cream of the crop! Head on over and stock up on delicious local meats, vibrant seasonal vegetables and all manner of decadent treats to make your getaway even more enjoyable. Here are some of the best farm shops in Cornwall...


Padstow Farm Shop, Padstow 

Padstow Farm Shop in Cornwall

Padstow Farm Shop, Trethillick Farm, Padstow, Cornwall, PL28 8HJ

When visiting the pretty fishing port of Padstow, be sure to check out this local  farm shop, which sells its own traditionally reared beef and lamb, and homegrown vegetables, along with a range of other products all sourced as locally as possible. And if sustainability is a key priority for you, you’ll be pleased to learn that the farm shop is powered by an 11-kilowatt wind turbine. Plus, much of the land is in Countryside Stewardship; a scheme where no sprays or fertilisers are used. 

Picking up goodies here is a shopper’s paradise; take your time to peruse the award-winning farm shop, butchery and Roundhouse Deli in full. But whatever you do, don’t leave without picking up their signature Padstow Pasta. Made with homegrown durum wheat, we reckon it’s the best this side of Rome. 


Trevilley Farm, Newquay

Trevilley Farm Shop, Trevilley Farm, Lane, Newquay, Cornwall, TR8 4PX 

Trevilley Farm just outside of Newquay has been family run for five generations over 100 years, and is loved by the community for good reason. 

Amongst their offering, you can order veg boxes or welcome hampers, but there is real joy to be had by visiting and selecting your own produce. Inside the shop you’ll find their own beef, lamb and vegetables as well as a range of meat from other Cornish suppliers. Our favourite? The shelves stocked with their own homemade jams, marmalades, chutneys and pickles, as well as delicious from-scratch breads, Cornish pasties and cakes. The latter is best enjoyed with a coffee (they do those too), sitting outside in the sun on one of their picnic benches.


Lobbs Farm Shop, St Austell

Supplied by its own three farms - Corran Farm, Lower Kestle Farm and Higher Kestle Farm - along with other local meat producers, the beef and lamb here is fully traceable having spent all of its life at their farms. 

Alongside the meat counter, there's both a cheese and deli counter, as well as seasonable vegetables, local wines and beers, preserves, store cupboard essentials and homemade frozen meals. Special occasion? Order a hamper made up of your favourite goodies.  Lobbs Farm Shop also runs events throughout the year, such as pumpkin picking, tractor-trailer rides, crafts and fayres.

While in the area, take some of your snacks to The Lost Gardens of Heligan, a magical place to visit for the whole family (and pooches too!). 


Boscastle Farm Shop, Boscastle

Boscastle Farm Shop, Cornwall

Boscastle Farm Shop, Hillsborough Farm, Boscastle, Cornwall, PL35 0HH

Surrounded by National Trust farmland and a stone’s throw from the coast path, when it comes to locations Boscastle Farm Shop is hard to beat. The shop is excellent for stocking up on home reared award-winning beef, lamb and pork (not to mention the homemade pies and cakes), and there's a café onsite where you can enjoy cream teas and other delights straight out of their coastal kitchen, while soaking up the seriously good views.

If you’d like to work up an appetite first, explore one of their many beautiful nature rambles nearby. Wildlife lovers should pack their binoculars; you might spot grey seals at the cove below the shop or Peregrine falcons nesting in the cliffs.

Trevallick’s Farm Shop, Liskeard

Cream tea

Once your belly is full, you’ll find an excellent range of local produce for sale in the farm shop. Run by five sisters raised in a Cornish village, you’ll find their passion for the county and its produce is clear. They even taste test every single product themselves (well, someone has to do it). Along with the usual suspects, you’ll find hampers, local artist crafts and every type of Cornish gin (we bet that was a fun tasting session!).


Etherington’s Farm Shop, Redruth

Etherington’s Farm Shop, Wheal Rose, Scorrier, Redruth, Cornwall TR16 5DF
