Maxey's Farm ShopKirklington Category Food and Drink, Shopping, For the Family
Maxeys is an excellent farm shop in north Nottinghamshire that has been recommended to us many times by Great Food Club members who live in the area.
The shop was launched in 2012 and is located in a modern wooden building on Katharine Maxey’s family farm. It sprang from the farm’s 20-year-old fruit and vegetable wholesale business, and most of the fresh produce sold in the shop – from pumpkins to asparagus – was grown in the fields nearby.
The whole Maxey family is involved in the farm shop and their passion for the business shines through. Alongside the homegrown produce is a fine selection of homemade pies, quiches and cakes.
There’s also a butchery selling locally sourced meats and a fish counter. In addition, customers can pick up over 70 cheeses, wines, locally brewed beers and a good range of Great Taste Award-winning delicacies.
This is a well-run, well-stocked, genuine farm shop where food miles are kept to a minimum.
