Village Greens Farm Shop

We recently visited a farm shop in a nearby village.  ”A farm shop, what’s a farm shop ?” you may be asking. :)

But basically a farm shop is a small shop that offers locally raised produce, meat, eggs and plants.  They also have organic flour blends and specialty food items, like jams and juices.  A photo of local eggs

When I first heard ”farm shop” I imagined a shop that only sells things grown on their farm, but this isn’t really the case at the farm shops I’ve visited.  The ones I’ve been to even offer some fruits and vegetables from far away places.  But the main stock of farm shops is focused on locally produced food and goods.

I’d like to visit more farm shops because each one has cute and unique touches.

Village Greens has a lovely garden near its parking lot.  They also have a bee garden that educates visitors about different kinds of bees.  Village Greens also offers a selection of vegetables and plants that are ‘own grown‘.

Have you ever been to a farm shop?  English readers, am I accurately describing farm shops?  :)
