CARLETON FARM SHOP - PENRITH

FARM SHOP

We are an authentic Farm Shop selling high quality, good value veg and meat grown and reared on our own farms. We also stock a delicious range of cheeses, patés, fish, honey, preserves, eggs, ice-cream, flour, cakes, bread, drinks and confectionery made by our friends and fellow producers from across the Eden Valley and beyond.

Try one of our tasty hampers for a special occasion or simply visit us to give your weekly shopping a local flavour!  Open daily, you can find us on the edge of Penrith, within easy reach of The Lake District and the M6 (J40), opposite Penrith Rugby Club.

GUEST PRODUCERS

Carleton Farm Shop regularly hosts guest producers, offering customers the opportunity to sample different products, find out how your food is made and buy direct from the producer.  Our Meaty Mondays feature mouth-watering Highland beef from Bank Head Farm at Crosby Ravensworth.  On a Cheesy Tuesday we are visited by award-winning Winter Tarn Cheese and on Fishy Fridays we welcome West Coast Fish who have proudly fished the West Coast of Cumbria out of the port of Whitehaven for many years.  Come and support your local producers and keep your money in the local economy at Penrith's only remaining food co-operative.

VISTAVEG BOX SCHEME

Carleton Farm Shop is managed by VistaVeg – a veg-grower’s co-operative and veg box scheme based in the Eden Valley. This means the veg in the Farm Shop is always fresh, seasonally available and boasts the best possible flavour and shelf life. From spuds to spicy salad leaves, from borlotti beans to beetroot we lovingly grow high quality veg for people who care about where their food comes from.  If you’d like to receive fresh veg delivered weekly or fortnightly to your door then join our veg box scheme here.
