Our popular Farm Shop offers a wide range of groceries, drinks, treats and home-grown veggies, with many products supplied by local producers. Our award winning cafe 'The Potting Shed', offers freshly prepared breakfast, brunch, lunch, teas, coffee and cakes, and is a popular destination for the residents of St Albans, Harpenden, Welwyn and beyond.  

Spring is in the Air

We are almost at the start of the bedding season and you can start planting up pots and hanging baskets.  We now have a large selection of potted patio and trailing plants to choose from, with multi-buy deals available when you buy 10 or more.

Tomato & Vegetable Plants

We now have a great selection of vegetable plants for sale.  You will find all the popular varieties of tomato plants, cucumbers, courgettes, chilli's, lettuce, cabbage and more!
