~ Fresh local produce ~ Artisan bakery ~ Refill Station ~ Gifts ~
At the heart of the community for nearly 40 years, we are a family run Farm Shop with several generations' history of farming in the area. We believe in sourcing produce locally when possible: buy fresh, eat fresh and support local.
We pride ourselves on honest, friendly, expert service. Our stock changes seasonally, and so it's worth coming for a browse, to see what’s in store right now.
During the current pandemic, at busy times we are limiting the number of customers in the shop. We also have hand sanitser gel at the door for everybody's use, and signage reminding everyone to be aware of social distancing.
What can you find at Southbourne Farm Shop?
Our on-site bakery produces handmade Artisan bread using all natural ingredients
Bread is freshly made Tuesdays through to Saturdays, including Southbourne Wild Soudough, Malted Barley, Crusty White, Sisu Rye, and the non-wheat Seeded Loaf. At the weekend, our bakery also produces mouth-watering patisserie treats.
Visit the bakery page for more details.
Fresh local produce,
delivered every day
We've a huge range of fruit and veg and we source as much of our fresh produce as locally as possible. Often the goods are picked from the field and on our shelves the very same day. The freshness is evident in the vibrancy of the produce and of course in the taste. We also ensure that the fruit and veg can be purchased without the need for plastic packaging. Brown paper bags are available, or of course you are welcome to bring your own.
Milk refill station
Our milk refill station dispenses fresh whole and semi-skimmed milk from the prize-winning Ayrshire herd at Northney Farm, Hayling Island. This eco-friendly method of buying milk reduces plastic waste and helps support our local dairy producer. The milk is pasteurised, non-homogenised.
Local dairy and meat produce
We source our milk from two local milk suppliers, the Goodwood Estate and Pensworth. We also have a grand selection of cheeses including varieties such as Isle of Wight Blue, goats cheese from Beau Farm, and several flavoured wedges from High Weald Dairy (including Brighton Blue). We can also put you in the direction of a good cheddar! Our meat is supplied by our Cosham-based butcher, who sources most of the meat from English producers.
Frozen food range: buy what you need all year round
Our frozen range from Field Fare is extremely popular: loose frozen fruit and vegetables that you can scoop up and buy in the quantities you require. There's also frozen patisserie treats, fish fillets, Yorkshire puddings, and lots more.
We also stock a truly delicious range of ready-made meals from locally-based Alexandra's Kitchen. The meals are made with high quality ingredients, available in two different portion sizes.
Gift ideas to treat yourself or someone else
Our home range includes hand-painted ceramics in rustic pastel colours, and an olive wood range from a small workers' cooperative in Tunisia.
We stock a large selection of greeting cards, and freshly cut flowers are available (which we can wrap for you). We also have plenty of different chocolate boxes and bars from producers such as Montezumas, Ooh Chocolata, and Monty Bojangles.
Chutneys, preserves, cakes, biscuits...
Our range of chutneys and preserves is huge; there are many flavours to choose, from several different suppliers including The Isle of Wight Garlic Farm and Cottage Delight.
We stock locally-made cakes and desserts from The Fab Food Co, Farmhouse Cookery, and Westbourne Bakery (who also deliver fresh bread to us six days a week).
Wines, spirits and ales sourced locally and from further afield
Our farm shop stocks a range of local ales and ciders and our local gins include Chichester Harbour, Chilgrove, and Wessex Distillery. We also have sparkling wine from the local vineyards of Ashling Estate, and many wines from destinations around the world.
Shop with us and reduce plastic waste
This is a topic important to us and indeed many of our customers: the need to reduce excess plastic packaging waste. We have paper bags for our fresh fruit & veg, and products such as the frozen Field Fare range can be optionally filled into our customers own reusable pots and containers. Our milk refill station offers 1 litre local milk in glass bottles, and we will soon be launching an extensive Zero Waste Refill Station.
We also stock plenty more, including an extensive range of dried herbs and spices from Wilton Wholefoods, flour for bread-making from Wessex Mill, local ice cream from Meadow Cottage, pet food, plants, logs and kindling, coal and firelighters... indeed we try and stock all you would need for your average weekly grocery shop.
Say hello to our animals!
Our animals are always happy to come and say hello to you (especially if you're holding a carrot or two). We have three horses, two young Hereford calves and a Longhorn cow. They are all very much a part of the Farm Shop family.
