Buckinghamshire is not short of fantastic farm shops either. Lacey’s Family Farm is famous for its delicious Guernsey cream and milk which is used in and around some of the county’s best restaurants and cafes. You can also find a selection of meats, deli items, homemade pies and sausages there too. Other farm shops and delis in the local area include, Beechwood Fine Foods, The Deli at No.5, Bradmoor Farm Shop and Boycott Farm Shop.
If you love a pint of craft beer, brewed with passion and skill by real-ale enthusiasts, or a glass of wine from a local producer. The area now boasts a number of microbreweries, vineyards and distilleries. If you are someone who is a gin lover, look no further than these Buckinghamshire family run distilleries, Griffiths Brothers and Puddingstone Distillery. Enjoy a pint or two at one of the more well established breweries, such as Rebellion Brewery and Chiltern Brewery.
