Review of Besshill farm shop

As a parent and grandparent I feel that it is important that children are fed good wholesome food which is free of additives that can affect behaviour. This  is one of the reasons that I am writing this review.

Besshill farm shop is in Arlington approximately 10 miles from Barnstaple, the farm is easy to find and has ample car parking.

Inside the shop is spotless and all varieties of meat are on display.

The beef and pork is reared on the farm

, the free range locally sourced.

We have always found the staff to be extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly, the meat tastes like it used to ( before we all got used to buying our meat from a supermarket) plus as there are no waste bits to remove before cooking  it is excellent value for money.

The joints that we buy are hung for at least 4 weeks allowing them to mature.

As an animal lover the welfare of the animal is just as important as the taste and I know that the meat sold here comes from animals which have been reared well.

Besshill also sell a wide range of dairy products and free range eggs all of which are on display.

Once customers have visited and purchased from Besshill farm shop I know that they will return  time and time again, as we have.

Besshill offer a national and local delivery service and sell products at many farmers markets.

Contact the farm shop on 01271 850311 or by the website

  1. You can’t beat a good farm shop and this one looks very good, lovely to know the animals are well cared for and in return you get really good meat. This is a really good advert for them .

  2. We have farm shops a dozen where I live….love them/hate them not sure? I do love a good farm shop for its atmosphere or good old coffee shop. I like the local produce just hate the prices tbh. This one looks good but is it good value for money?

  3. It’s always nice to get fresh, local produce and support local businesses. Thanks for sharing this with us at #TriumphantTales. Hope to see you again on Tuesday for the last linky of 2017 🙂

  4. We don’t have a farm shop nearby but you can’t beat the meat from a butcher for quality and we have a couple of really good ones near us. This shop looks great. Hope you had a great Christmas with your family Karen. #TweensTeensBeyond

  5. One of my resolutions is to source my food locally and eat more free-range and organic. This has inspired me – great review. Thank you so much for sharing your posts with #TweensTeensBeyond in 2017 and looking forward to reading more in 2018. x
