Located on a family run 400 acre working farm & visitor attraction, Roves Farm Shop, Butchery & Café opened in 2017 and has gone from strength to strength.
Stocking over 500 products, many of which are made from home-reared & locally sourced produce, on our shelves you will find a wide range of top-quality meats, free-range eggs, milk, cheeses, fresh fruit & vegetables, homemade pies, lasagnes, quiches, cakes & artisan breads. We have an extensive range of store cupboard staple sauces, chutneys, pickled onions & jams. We also stock a variety of local craft beers, cider, ales, wines & spirits plus high-quality chocolate & sweet treats.
Many products are also available to buy in our online shop for collection in-store.
We are passionate about producing good quality meat from the best animals, reared to high animal welfare standards. You can be confident knowing the ‘field to fork’ journey of all Roves-reared meat. Our lamb, pork and beef is all born & reared here on our farm. Slow grown & well hung to produce meats that are tender & full of flavour and butchered here by our experienced butchers.
Our 40 strong herd of breeding Sussex cows are a traditional breed that thrive on our rich grassland and are renowned for producing quality meat, that is well marbled, fine in texture with a traditional flavour.
Our home-produced prime lambs are born and reared on the farm to the highest welfare and environmental standards. We have two flocks, Poll Dorset ewes and Suffolk cross ewes. The early lambing, Poll Dorsets, supply us with new season lamb from late January. The main flock of Suffolk cross ewes provide us with a lamb supply for the rest of the year. Our lamb is always well hung for a minimum of seven days to develop flavour and produce tender, succulent cuts.
Roves Farm pork comes from our own Gloucester Old Spot pigs, a traditional rare breed pig, producing the finest cuts of pork. Our pigs are reared outdoors under our willows and in the fields where they are free to root and forage. The slower growth of our pigs and their stress-free environment helps produce more succulent, flavoursome meat & delicious crackling!
In the skilled hands of our experienced butchers, Gavin & Dave, our Roves-reared meats are transformed into top quality sausages, burgers, prime cuts, mince and excellent joints.
Our Woolly Sheep Café is open every day serving freshly prepared food, from brilliant breakfasts to light lunches & delicious homemade cake. We have a variety of fresh, homemade dishes to choose from with many gluten, soya & dairy free options.
Our fantastic team also handmake all the prepared meals, quiches, pies and cakes that can be found in the Farm Shop.
The latest additions to our Farm Shop offering include a zero-waste pantry and fresh milk dispenser.
Roves Refills will enable our customers to shop more sustainably. Just re-use your own clean plastic containers, paper or cloth bags & jars, and fill with a range of pasta, beans, pulses, nuts, oil, fruit, grains, seeds, chocolate & even sweets.
Reducing the use of unnecessary packaging, this way of shopping is sustainable, economical & easy. By reusing your own containers, plastic use is reduced & you are buying just what you need & so reducing food waste.
We also sell glass jars just in case you forget to bring your own!
And don’t miss the Moo Station, which dispenses fresh milk, locally sourced from Berkeley Farm, which is just six miles away. Just buy a re-usable glass bottle from the Farm Shop, dispense your milk and you’re all set. Add a flavoured shot & you have a tasty milkshake to go! Alternatively, you can bring your own container to re-use. Another way we are helping our customers to reduce & re-use plastic and cut waste.
We look forward to welcoming you very soon.
