Fruit and Vegetables
Our fruit and vegetables come from
in Bournemouth who support as many local growers as possible (over the
summer we have had English cherries, strawberries from The New Forest,
blueberries from Wimborne, local salad and potatoes). We are happy to
take orders for fruit and vegetables for collection at a time that is
convenient to you. Please pop in and see us to discuss ordering.
We stock a wide range of meat at our butchery counter and in the pre pack
display cabinet including handmade on site burgers, sausages and faggots.
As much possible, our meat is sourced locally. We generally have Lamb from Cheselbourne or Dorchester, Chicken from Piddle Valley Chicken, Beef from local farmers, Pork from across the road at Ansty Herd.
Although the butchery counter is only open 3 days a week, we have a wide range
of fresh pre packed meat available all week. See butchery tab for more information.
Our Cheese, Yogurts and Cream all come from Longmans Cheese in
Yeovil. We stock local cheeses including Sturminster Newton Blue
Vinny, Longmans own Cheddar in Mild, Mature, Extra Mature, XXX and
Smokacre. We also stock Cambozola, Camembert, Edam, Somerset Brie,
Dorset Red and many others.
Since George moved his butchery here from Dorchester in 2015 the meat sales have increased and we have found he can bring a lot more to the shop than just meat. George’s handmade pies are a massive hit with everyone that tries them. They get sent all over the country!!
George makes all the pies completely by hand right through from the pastry to the meat filling. If you come to the shop on a day that pies are cooking the temptation is just overwhelming and nearly every customer goes out with a pie after the smell of the cooking drifts through the shop and across the car park.
There are a variety of flavours each week, from the favourites-chicken, ham & leek and steak & ale to game pie and liver, bacon & onion pie.
We stock a large range of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks.
Cawston Press range of drinks are a favourite with the locals. All apple based, these juices are refreshing on a warm day but can be warming on a cold day (The Ginger and Apple juice is delicious warmed up). We stock a wide range of the Belvoir cordials, again some refreshing for the summer and some warming for the winter.
We have a range of local Hall and Woodhouse Badger Beers and beer
from the local Cerne Abbas Brewery. You will also find a large
range of wine, liqueur, mead and cider from local
Winery. We also stock well-known Langham
Estate Wine, which is produced at Bingham’s Melcombe Estate. This
sparkling wine is perfect for a special occasion or as a gift from
the local area.
Our Milk comes from
Farm Dairy in Osmington near Weymouth and is delivered to us at
least 3 times a week so we can always offer the freshest produce.
Jams, Sweets and Savouries
We have a wide range of biscuits, both sweet and savoury. We have
a selection of flavoured sweet biscuits from
Biscuits in Bridport.
We have a variety of chutneys, jams and marmalades from Highfield
Preserves in Devon, The Bay Tree in Dorset and smaller local producers.
Every morning fresh bread, baguettes and croissants are baked
in our on site oven. We also have sliced bread delivered at least
twice a week so we can always guarantee you a fresh loaf.
For those with a sweet
tooth the Dorset Chocolate Co chocolate bars and handmade fudge are a big hit.
- Other local suppliers include:
- Jessicas Cakes in Bridport
- Eggs from Bishops Caundle, Sherborne
- Piddle Valley Honey
- Smoked Trout and Trout Terrine from Mere Fish Farm
We have a range of compost, pots and plants in Spring and Summer.

artists) and wrapping paper.
Throughout the year we have seasonal hampers and you can either
pick from hampers we have created or choose items from the shop to
create your own which we can wrap for you.
For the winter season we stock local wood and coal from Northover
Fuels. We also sell Calor Gas Cylinders for winter heating and summer
There is a full range of compost and gardening items including
stones, shingle etc.
The pet and wild bird food section has moved from one side of the
shop to the other - we are still catching some of you out!!! This
move has allowed us a lot more space for pet/wild bird food and
therefore we have been able to extend the range!
