This is a very "upmarket" farm shop but it has excellent fresh food as well as local produce. My wife was very impressed by the fresh estate reared meat. It is a very popular venue with cars arriving all the time so people are not put off by the high prices.

Fabulous range of foods and drinks to tempt people into trying something different. A lot of the food products are locally sourced, particularly the fresh meets, breads, vegetables, cakes and drink, to name a few. Service is excellent and it's very difficult to leave the shop with an empty basket! Prices are very reasonable for the quality and uniqueness of the wide range of products on sale. Easy to find - well signed - and plenty of free car parking spaces available. Located next to the Chatsworth Estate Coffee and tea rooms ( which use the foods on sale at the shop). Well worth a visit.

It must be great to be the number one farm shop on a list of ... one. But there's no resting on one's laurels for this farm shop. We've visited many around the UK, and Chatsworth House is particularly good.

So far, we've bought coffee beans, fresh bread, fresh cakes (large and scrumptious), Christmas nicknacks, brown sauce for mum (she always asks us to pick up a bottle of Chatsworth's own brand), as other bits and pieces. It sometimes costs an arm and a leg – the benefits of being the only farm shop in the district. But if you time it right, manage to get in the free car park, avoid the long queues, you're in for a decent shopping treat.

Will someone please tell the staff at the cafe that a) there is no need to insist on name and phone number when customers have checked in with the track and trace app. They argued that not everyone has a smart phone. True enough but I’d pointed out that I’d scanned their QR bar code. I’d go as far as to say that the lady was quite unpleasant. Shame.
And b) that although times are trying they are allowed to smile. Take a leaf from the book of the ladies at the cafe in Edensor.

Thank you for your comments. We are following all guidance from the government regarding Covid-19. This includes offering the NHS track and trace QR code and also taking a paper copy of our diners details. Both are a legal requirement for all restaurants and cafes. I'm sorry you felt the team weren't polite, i will address this with them to ensure this doesn't happen again.

We have visited the farm shop many times and always have a good display and plenty of choice especially in the Butchery.
We think it is getting very expensive. A Cauliflower was £1.65 when you can buy in many places for £1.00 . It is a little like Harrods have come to the Country. The Gammon Joints were nearly twice as much as we would pay at a high class butcher in Lincolnshire.

After a lovely walk at Carsington water, decided to make extra 17 mile trip to Chatsworth farm shop, which is usually a must visit when in area. What a disappointment!. Only had to queue for about ten minutes to get inside and was very impressed with sanitising facilities at entrance.however as I was also looking to purchase vegetables which are beyond entrance outside, I had to leave the queue and to enable me to go inside shop afterwards had to rejoin the queue leaving me to receive very disapproving looks from other customers still in queue. One of the items I purchased was a Bakewell pudding at £5.95. Absolutely AWFUL. Millimetres deep, never been near ground almonds, just tasted synthetic of cheap almond essence, AVOID. Staff were not particularly friendly either and all seemed to be a bit down. Overall a very disappointing visit.

After tour of estate we decided we required something to eat and decided to pop into the shop and cafe. Great choice, I had a smashing roast beef lunch whilst wife had mushrooms on sour dough and some fries, this was also lovely. Then went into shop which was also great, only problem is that we were visiting and do not live local as butchers and fish looked amazing.
Well worth a visit if near as no need to go to house as can visit independently as not in grounds. But is well signposted

Shopped today having not been for a couple of years. Supposed to open at 9am as advertised. After leaving around a dozen people in the cold and pouring rain finally decided to open after 9.15am. Stock was good but not as good as we remembered. We shopped as a couple as allowed and this was fine but for some unknown reason on getting to the tills I was told "One person at the till" "Get out, get out" (there were no signs) I started to leave and was then told by the grey haired lady on the till "Not that way!" So instead of walking down a wide aisle passed other shoppers I was supposed to know that I should have walked behind the tills passing all their staff!! Rudeness is understating things and will never go back. Perhaps someone from the shop might have the decency to explain and apologise. Otherwise don't waste your time going here.

Thank you for your comments. We apologise for the lateness of us opening the store on the day of your visit. This was due to us having to ensure we have our stock delivery on the shelves before customers enter the store to protect our team and ensure social distancing. We explain as our customers enter the store and on our covid 19 signage that only one person can stay at the till point to pay. The reason for asking for this, is to help with social distancing at the checkouts, protecting our team and other customers. We apologise if you felt this was done a rude manner, i will speak to the team to ensure this is communicated politely.

I was once served at Chatsworth Farm Shop by the Duchess of Devonshire. How things have changed, We now have staff standing by the door counting people and glaring at them. Getting us used to being bullied, for martial law I suppose. Chatsworth Farm Shop without the late Duchess gets poorer by the day. Once one of the finest food shops, now a very poor imitation. I got to the till and was told to “get behind ze line” by an unsmiling youth, their attitudes are disgraceful. Sad times.

Fantastic array of amazing produce. They seem to have sorted out their COVID procedures since the last couple of reviews - there are restrictions, of course, but nothing more than what is usual in any shop right now. The hand washing trough at the entrance had lovely warm water which was welcome on a less than summery day.
I enjoyed browsing the mouthwatering food and was particularly tempted by some huge cheese and herb scones - delicious and great value! I had to resist filling my basket with too many treats and wish I lived nearer to be able to visit more often!
