We have two farm shops, ‘HFG Farm Shop Beeston St Andrew’ – two miles out of Norwich on the B1150 (North Walsham Road) and ‘HFG Farm Shop Blofield’ – just off the A47 at Blofield. There is also a PYO site at HFG Blofield. We have a second PYO site at ‘HFG at White House Farm’ – just off Blue Boar Lane, Sprowston.
Our team, who are a friendly, enthusiastic bunch, is well led, by two knowledgeable Managers – Carol (HFG Blofield) and Pauline (HFG Beeston). We are always keen and happy to help in whichever way we possibly can.
Our produce is fresh, competitively priced and of a high quality.
Most of our own fruit and vegetables are planted, then carefully selected and harvested by hand on a daily basis from our fields and orchards, and for sale in our farms shops on the day they are harvested.
We understand the environmental issues linked with food transportation around the world and see the retail side of our business as an opportunity to help reduce the amount of CO2 emissions associated with food distribution. Traceability is extremely simple – we can show our customers where the food they buy from us is produced / grown – ‘food miles’ can be measured in ‘farm yards’!
We source our non perishable produce from other, sometimes very small, local producers and suppliers enabling us to offer our customers a varied, wide and innovative range.
We enjoy working with local schools and other groups. Visiting our shops, PYO sites and farms helps children make the link between the food we eat and the countryside which produces it and encourages them to eat a healthy diet, including their ‘5 a day’.
We provide a delivery service to our larger customers such as local nursing homes and plan to extend this service in the future.
We plan to expand and develop more products under the distinctive HFG brand.
Our customers enjoy the experience of unrushed, yet convenient shopping at HFG Farm Shops. They come not only to buy food, but to talk and enthuse about it with each other and our staff. It doesn’t matter if our vegetables don’t conform to ‘standard’ shapes and sizes – it’s the taste and where it comes from that matter!
