Covid-19 UPDATE:   We have moved to local deliveries & online order collections. 

We are able to operate at very low risk, for the following reasons 1) We provide non-contact customer deliveries/collections; 2) We are a small staff team who are strictly following the government’s guidance 3) Deliveries received to the shop will also be non-contact; & 4) In addition to our 5-star hygiene rating, we are implementing a rigorous cleaning schedule.

We would like to thank everyone for your continued support and understanding in these strange and turbulent times. 

We look forward to smiling at you from a distance! 😊

In light of this we have decided to continue with our ‘Happy’ Goat Boxes to provide our community with an alternative to supermarket produce.

We’re now offering a free local delivery service (conditions apply*) & ‘click & collect’ via our online shop.  So pick one of the boxes below for an excellent selection made by the goat team (we’re happy to be guided on styles…).   Why not tack on some local, free range eggs from Beechwood Farm, some chutney, biscuits or some small batch gin?!  Fresh bread from Bare Bread Bakery is also available on Saturdays.


* £30 minimum spend, to an address within a 5 mile radius of the shop
