About Summerhill Farm shop
Summerhill Farm Shop is situated in the village of Cardington, just south of Bedford. Previously a redundant Victorian stock shed, the building was converted in 2008 and the farm shop was opened in March that year. The shop was taken over in July 2011 and many changes are being planned, some of which are already in progress.
Delicious local food sourced from Bedfordshire and the surrounding counties.
We have our own rare-breed British White beef from a small herd on the Southill Estate - the cattle are entirely grass-fed, ensuring the best natural meat. Other local beef of a similar quality is sourced to supplement our own. Lamb (Cardington), pork (St Neots) and chicken (Cardington) are all sourced from local farms.
Warden Abbey, Bedfordshire’s only working vineyard, is located a short distance from Summerhill Farm Shop and provides fine wines that have consistently won awards for their quality and flavour.
The Cottage Bakery of Ampthill, established over 20 years ago, delivers freshly baked bread every day along with cakes, fruit pies and quiches for the deli counter. L B Stewart & Son of Bromham are now supplying vegetables grown themselves or sourced locally along with locally grown fruit.
An extensive range of handmade products are sourced from within fifty miles of Summerhill – the selection is growing all the time as new suppliers are found. There are biscuits from Willington, preserves and chutneys from Flitwick and chilli products from Chawston to name but a few.
The deli counter is beginning to bow under the weight of the new and exciting range of delicious British cheeses. The old favourites are still available but look out for interesting additions each week as well as regular guest cheeses. You will always be welcome to “try before your buy” to make sure you get the perfect cheese for any occasion.
The new management team bring a wealth of farming, food retail and butchery experience to Summerhill and they are keen to impart their knowledge. By following the local ethos, producers and suppliers are supported and kept in business, food miles are reduced and the local economy improved which is good for everyone.
Working with local businesses
As well as customers to the shop, work has started on forging links with other local businesses. Customers at The Hare and Hounds at Old Warden are now enjoying our award winning Summerhill Traditional Pork Sausages and diners at the recently launched Grill Room at the Nags Head in St Neots can choose our beef from the menu.
The already very popular lunch menu of made-to-order filled rolls will be expanding and this service will be offered to local businesses – all with a view to promoting fabulous local and British food and making it easier for our customers to buy local.
