On the edge of Cannock Chase Country Park, you’ll find Bleakhouse Farm, home to this 4th generation family business, Bradshaw Brothers Farm Shop and Café.
At the heart of the farm shop is the onsite traditional butchers who work daily to produce locally sourced, quality cuts of meat perfect for the Sunday roast or flavoured sausages which might inspire you to try something a little bit different. What about pork and tomato or chilli and cheese? I can feel my mouth watering.
There is also a massive selection of bread which is produced in-house using traditional methods. The extensive list of artisan loaves covers all tastes from multiseed, granary and rye through to tiger bread, cheese & onion baps , baguettes and the wonderfully local and evocative Staffordshire knot.
Wander past the meat counter and bakery shelves and you will discover local cider, a deli counter complete with homemade Bradshaw’s pies (“the meat is tender, the pastry’s wonderful” commented one reviewer on social media), fresh produce, gifts, hampers and various seasonal items (including the current season’s hot chocolate shots which I definitely have my eye on)… and if you cannot make it in person then all of these goodies are available to order online.
Free delivery is available to local Burntwood residents within a 3 mile radius of the shop but they will also deliver further afield to local areas Cannock, Hednesford, Heath Hayes, Norton Canes and Lichfield for a £5 charge (orders £40 or over).
If you have small people and want to make a day of it, then the farm also hosts alpaca and other animal experiences. My favourite suggestion is the “pick your own egg and take it home for tea”. My children would have loved that when they were small!
