A family run farm shop in the heart of Derbyshire
While looking at options for selling our #beyondfreerange eggs produced here on the farm, we thought why not sell other locally produced food as well? This offers a great opportunity to local producers to showcase their amazing products and gives consumers more choice along with the option to buy top quality, locally produced food. So we built a shop with a difference, an automated shop that’s easy to use, safe, clean and has a secure shopping environment with extended opening hours because we felt that’s the best way to bring all this delicious produce to the community.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Lucie, Stewart and Greg.

An automated vending farm shop
We’ve installed a fully automated vending shop, one of the largest in Europe. The shop is stocked with wonderful produce from local suppliers.
So how will it work?
Ordering at the shop
Inside the shop there are two ordering screens – one for ambient (room temperature) produce i.e eggs, fresh baked bread, homemade cakes, crisps etc and another for chilled produce such as shushi, homemade ready meals, fresh locally produced meats, pies, cheese, and milk etc.
All the products available in the ambient or chilled machine are listed on each screen. You scroll through the screen, select your product or products by tapping on them and then press check out and hold your card above the payment terminal.
Once payment has been taken you can then walk down the lockers and the doors will ping open, allowing you to collect your purchases. It’s that easy – we’ve had all everyone from 6 year olds to 101 year olds using the shop.
We also have a coffee machine so you can grab a freshly brewed take away coffee, hot chocolate or tea.
