In the center of Ardeley village, you’ll find this little gem, Church Farm.
‘A Farm to Produce Food for People’ (and, it has to be said, a lot more besides)
Church Farm Store offers a wide range of wonderfully fresh fruit and veg (the meat is from their traditional on-site butchery) fresh bread, eggs, jams and ready meals. In fact, Church Farm boasts over 100 different vegetables, fruits and herbs all grown here!
Church Farm Café (open every day 9-5) serves a popular all-day breakfast, offers a children’s menu, seasonal dishes, coffees & Fair-Trade teas. A take away service is also available.
Also on site you’ll find the ancient ‘The Jolly Waggoners’ pub serving, freshly cooked meals, local ales including organic & artisan wines. Dogs and children are welcome here! Open from 12-11.30
Every cut of meat in the Farm Shop, the Café & the Jolly Waggoner’s Pub comes from free range Church Farm animals. You can order your Christmas meat online or within the farm shop itself.
You can purchase a day pass which will enable you and the ‘little people’ use of the indoor play area (you can order food & drinks from the Café & enjoy your lunch here whilst they let off some steam) With this same pass, you can access the farm trail, the woodland play area AND collect free range eggs from the church Farm hens, there’s plenty to keep them amused for an afternoon. With free parking, great food, wifi facilities, camping (including log cabin breaks) Church Farm truly is a free range experience.
