Eight years after our Farm Shop and Restaurant was burnt to the ground, work is set to start to rebuild the family business.
We are incredibly excited to announce that 8 years after the devastating fire that left our much-loved farm shop burnt to the ground, we are about to embark on our ‘big build.’
From the 3rd December 2018 the groundworks for our brand new, state-of-the-art, farm shop and restaurant will begin and we aim to open the doors next summer to coincide with the 90th anniversary of our family run business that stretches over five generations.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our incredible staff and all our loyal customers, for not only bearing with us, but for their tremendous ongoing support since 2010. We couldn’t have got this far without you!
The future looks bright and we can’t wait to transform from Britain’s oldest farm shop to Britain’s newest.
We will keep you regularly updated on how the next stage of our exciting long-awaited journey goes and we look forward to welcoming you all through the doors at our grand opening.
Check out our development timeline below to see our progress so far!
In the meantime, please don’t worry, you can still get your hands on our amazing award winning pies and delicious much loved sausages, as our trusty old shop and restaurant will remain open until our new building is ready.
On behalf of the Hinchliffe family, thank you all so much, your support and loyalty has been phenomenal.
On the 3rd December 2018, the construction process of the long awaited Hinchliffe's Farm Shop and Café commenced.
The new state-of-the-art Hinchliffe’s Farm Shop and Restaurant is expected to open this summer to coincide with our 90th anniversary.
Please don’t worry, the old shop and restaurant will remain open until our new building is ready.
