We are opening our third farm shop up at Notcutts Garden Centre, Daniel’s Road, NORWICH in early March. Do come and see us and try some of the delicious flavours from around our region!
Horstead Farming Group Ltd (HFG) was set up in 2005 to meet the challenges ahead for agriculture. The group of family run farms have been working co-operatively for several years. Together we farm 3500 acres and are involved in providing contract services on a further 1500 acres. We offer various farming services to other Norfolk farmers.
We are passionate about the food we produce, source and sell through our Norfolk farms shops. The shops maintain more traditional farming methods revolving around the use of organic manures, straw mulches and good rotational practice. The use of modern techniques is at a much lower level than that used in large scale production, in this way we feel that we are maintaining food safety, without impacting on quality – growing safe accountable food. For instance we employ the use of drones as part of our process of monitoring however this does not affect the quality of our produce.
Come down and check out our farm shop. We have plenty of entertainment for the kids including games and an entertainment centre fully equipped with a Smart TV box to ensure you can fully enjoy your time at our shop while your kids remain amused.
Best Rural Retailer
The farm shops support our co-operative ethos enabling us as farmers to get closer to the consumer – helping us learn from direct feedback and for our customers to learn more about agriculture and the countryside, at the same time offering them a choice and us a means of diversification.
