Featured Farm Shop – Essex

1/06/2021 | 0 comments

The Blackwell family has been farming in the Coggeshall area for four generations.
The ethos of our award-winning Farm Shop, Butchery and Deli is to support local
producers and farmers and over 90% of the produce we market is sourced from within a
20-mile radius.
We source our meat from our own farm or local farmers known and trusted by ourselves
for their good husbandry skills.

Our free-range chickens from Sutton Hoo, Sutton Hoo focus on high welfare; the birds live
in small groups with shelter from the elements, in mobile houses that have no artificial
lighting and are naturally ventilated.

The chickens roam freely over 40 acres of Suffolk meadows, where they are free to peck,
graze and engage in their natural behaviours. They believe that a slower grown chicken,
matured for up to 12 weeks, naturally develops quality, fuller flavour, and succulence.

Our friendly, knowledgeable butchers are always on hand to help with cuts of meat and we
are always happy to help source the more unusual meats. 

Our deli is brimming with cheese from across Europe as well as some great English
favourites. We also offer traditional hams, cooked meats, and Dingley Dell’s Artisan
selection of air-dried meats.

We have a large supply of traditionally grown seasonal veg’ and source a variety of fruits
from Sible Hedingham.

Our talented chefs within our on-site kitchen produce a selection of seasonal ready to bake
pies along with soups, sausage rolls, pasties, and dishes such as beef lasagne, cottage pie,
Moroccan lamb stew, lasagne, and many more.

Other local products we stock include, Farmer Browns Rapeseed Oil from Bures, Fairfield
Crisps from Wormingford, smoked fish from Maldon, potatoes from Manningtree, Eggs
from Stanway, and honey produced by the bees on our farm.

For those with a sweet tooth, our on-site bakers create delicious cakes, pastries, and
desserts. Each week we have different sweet treats available.

In 2015, we introduced Blackwells Catering, also based on-site. Mark, our Head Chef is on
hand to create the perfect menu for events and functions. Mark and his team are
committed to working alongside customers when planning a menu, whether it be a formal
wedding breakfast, summer picnic, hog roast, dinner party or corporate event. 

Our creative bakers are also part of this service offering personalised cakes, bakes and
cupcakes for special occasions.

Blackwells offer personalised cakes, bakes & cupcakes for special occasions.

At Blackwells we pride ourselves in keeping it local and are constantly looking to add more
locally produced products to our already extensive list.
