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!
This month we have hosted Deborah from Two Hats who has shared her fabulous herb blends with us and on 25th March we will have Made by Sarah doing tastings of her delicious jams, chutneys and sauces. And for those of you who fancy growing your own veg this year, we'll be doing early sowing of peas in the shop on Sunday 19th March!
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.
We offer a seasonal calendar of foody events and activities for all the family!
