“Great local farm shop, but needs to keep the "local"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Downingbury Farm is a great farm shop on a working farm, and a wonderful place to shop and pick the fruits when in season. Always a great selection of local grown produce, and local meats and other produce.

The only disappointment for me has been when I bought eggs from Downingbury Farm, expecting farm eggs - but they were from caged hens. Ok so I should have checked before buying - but I never buy caged hen eggs even from the supermarket, and presumed that from a farm shop they would be at least free range.

But well worth a visit, and good for buying local produce - just check you are buying what you would expect from a farm shop!

“Kids love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We went strawberry picking here the last couple of summers. The kids love being able to pick their own fruit and it keeps them entertained trying to find the biggest strawberries

Brilliant - what a fantastic thing that you can take the kids and pick your own fruit. The kids love it and of course so do we.

“Wide range of top quality 'pick your own fruits'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Apart from the 'pick your own' the farm shop has a huge selection of other produce too large to mention
