We opened The Farm Shop in Moulsham Street to bring a country store to the old part of Chelmsford, hoping to find some local producers and suppliers to help us to create something a little different and individual, where you could buy as little as you needed.
Now 5 years on, we can confidently say we’re the only shop in Chelmsford that offer the range of homemade produce that we do. From fresh salads, pastas and sandwiches made every morning to cottage pies, meat balls and chilli con carne made once a week. Whether you’re looking for a fresh homemade lunch, homemade meals or desserts we’ve got it covered. We spend the time and effort cooking, baking and preparing the finest, freshest foods so whether you’re at work or home you can put your feet up, relax and enjoy.
We are working with a fine selection of local talent, including Carl Shepherd, a third generation baker who uses only Marriages of Chelmsford flour to produce the finest bread anywhere. Knight Meats of Widford who provide us with only the best hand-made sausages, hand-made Aberdeen Angus burgers, prime mince and rib-eye steaks. Priors Hall Farm of Great Dunmow supply our premium free-range bacon and ham, East End Farm Harlow for our delicious free range eggs, Diaper Poultry finest Suffolk chickens, Chadacre Honey from Galleywood, Crouch Vale Brewery South Woodham, jams, relishes and chutneys homemade by Hina from Baddow Village, and many more including Michael Scrace from Theydon Bois, the winner of 28 national pie awards, including the best Steak and Ale pie in England award for 2015.
It is fair to say that customers old and new who are looking for small amounts of fresh food are amazed at the quality and value that we offer. We now cook fresh individual home-made meals such as lasagne, cottage pies, fisherman’s pies and hotpots. Our chicken fillets especially are becoming legendary.
Come and visit us on Moulsham Street, we’re sure you will find what you’ve been looking for.
