Featured Farm Shop – Wiltshire
The Old Forge Farm Shop 

13/04/2023 | 0 comments


The beautiful Wiltshire village of Berwick St James has welcomed the opening of the Old Forge Farm Shop & Café. Well worth a stop off if you are travelling down the A303 and passing through Winterbourne Stoke (look out for signs at the roadside). The slight detour will be rewarded with a warm welcome from the new team that has taken on this quirky little building.

​Customer reviews are five star, and the locals are thrilled to have a farm shop back on their doorstep offering fresh fruit and vegetables, pies and pastries, cheese and olives, store cupboard essentials and a section of refills ranging from beautiful, locally harvested rapeseed oil to dried fruit and nuts.


​Half of the old forge is now a great little café for cakes, coffees and amazing full English breakfasts which come in varying degrees of “fullness” with farmers’ fuel (one of everything!), farmers’ feast (two of everything!), farmers’ allotment (vegetarian option), farmers’ harvest (vegan), growing farmer (kids). Literally something for everyone!

​This is a great place to stop if you are walking in the area and the laid back atmosphere is suitable for muddy boots and dogs (dog treats available) – even horse riders are welcomed and have been known to pick up a bacon roll to eat on the go!


​It is worth keeping an eye on social media posts for all the daily specials which will be hard to resist from coconut & chickpea curry to meatball pasta. There are sharing platters and cream teas, luxury afternoon teas (pre-booking essential) and lots of gluten free options.

​And if the sun is shining, grab a table outside. Sit back and let the Old Forge vibe soak in!
