Our family have farmed at Allington Bar Farm, near Chippenham, as tenants, for 3 generations. We farm approx. 700 acres at Allington Bar and in the local area, growing cereal crops, potatoes & grass. We also rear Cattle, Pigs & Sheep on the farm here at Allington. We rear mainly traditional British breeds, using less intensive farming methods. We’re a real farming family here at Allington. Dad, Paul and son, Tim, alongside his wife Naomi, work together to ensure the farm and shop, run smoothly. The addition of a great support team on the farm, Allington really is a great place to work. The Farm Shop has been supporting small, independent businesses since we first had four walls and a roof over our heads. We’re lucky to have so many fantastic local business in the local area like Marshfield Farm Ice Cream and Lick the Spoon Chocolates to support. We also supports independent businesses throughout the country, who offer something different. Our ethos is to source products that you can’t find in the supermarkets. There are so many delicious and delightful food items that are created with love, from small family-owned companies like Tracklements in the North of Wiltshire , to Mere Fish Farm in the South-West.

Allington Farm Shop

Allington Farm Shop opened back in 1981 by Paul Reynolds. The shop didn’t look like what it does today, however. Paul began by selling potatoes he grew on the farm and eggs from the chickens he reared. Through the decades the Farm Shop has evolved and change shape and size many times. It has been the continuous support from our wonderful customers, that has led to the expansion of the Farm Shop over the years. As more and more people started to take notice about supporting local businesses and British famers; more importantly, the quality of the food they’re eating, we needed to find more local producers, grow more of our own produce and employ more staff, to meet the needs of our ever growing customer base.

Allington Café

Allington Cafe opened in July 2008 by Emma who has a wealth of experience in the catering industry. Prior to Allington Cafe she established “The Farmhouse Kitchen” – a successful catering and event business. The ethos of the business is to create honest food using the best of local produce. This no nonsense approach and friendly welcome made the place increasingly popular with the locals. The cafe grew with the demand and today it comprises of a main cafe area, a conservatory (The Coffee Lounge) and a large outside area. A strong team of 20 works around the clock to bring the farm to your table. To learn more about us, head to our website by clicking the button below.
