Ludlow Farmshop was established in 2007 with the aim to offer the best fresh, local, seasonal and handmade food and drink.
The shop is set in the heart of the Earl Of Plymouth’s Oakly Park estate on the outskirts of Ludlow, surrounded by farms and fields that provide grass fed beef and lamb, rare breed Gloucester Old Spot pork, wild venison and game, milk, honey, fruit and vegetables with minimal food miles and complete control on quality.
Unlike many farm shops we produce over half of what we sell ourselves in a unique coming together of farming, artisan food production and local, seasonally focussed retailing.
We care for our surroundings and are constantly looking for ways to work with more growers, producers and farmers to support both the local economy and the beautiful countryside. This is why 80% of what we sell is either made here or sourced from Shropshire and the surrounding counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Powys.
The shop itself is a hive of activity in a unique, purpose built food hall surrounded by seven production units where you can see our award winning teams baking, cheesemaking, coffee roasting, butchering, preserving and cooking the wide variety of products on offer.
Next door you will find the Ludlow Kitchen cafe, The Clive Arms boutique inn and hotel, Bromfield village shop and post office.
We also share the Ludlow Farm site with our neighbours The Plant Centre and Islabikes.

The Oakly Park estate was once part of a royal forest in the chase of Ludlow Castle. Clive of India purchased the estate in the second half of the 18th Century and it has remained in the hands of the Earls of Plymouth and Windsor-Clive family for six generations since then. Activities on the estate today include in-hand farming enterprises producing milk, beef, lamb, pork and a variety of arable crops. Quarrying, renewable energy projects and residential and commercial lettings add to the mix of rural business surrounding the Farmshop, which is also flanked by Ludlow Racecourse, Ludlow Golf Club and a plethora of exciting businesses, artists and craftsmen in and around the Ludlow area. We are proud to be a part of Ludlow’s international reputation for food and independent spirit and look forward to welcoming you soon.
