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.


Carleton Farm Shop regularly hosts guest producers in the shop, offering customers the opportunity to sample different products, find out how your food is made and buy direct from the producer.  Look out for fresh local fish every Friday ... and our new Carleton Farm Shop Loyalty Card to reward regular Farm Shop customers.  Come and support your local producers and keep your money in the local economy at Penrith's only remaining food co-operative!

Coming up on Friday 5th May we have Jane from Fiends Fell in the shop between 10am and 4pm sharing tastings of her wonderful GLUTEN FREE cakes, biscuits, savoury quiches and delicious jams.  They're tasty for everyone whether you have a gluten-free diet or not!  Come on down and treat your taste-buds!

On Thursday 18th May from 1.00pm to 4.00pm we'll be helping you to create Edible Hanging Baskets!  Drop in and plant one up with our help and advice for just £10. This includes the basket, compost and plants ... or bring-your-own basket and fill up with compost & plants for £6.


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.


We offer a seasonal calendar of foody events and activities for all the family!
