It's always best to buy local, so here's our guide to some of the best farm shop in the region
Countrystyle Meats, Lancaster Leisure Park, Wyresdale Road, Lancaster
Specialist butchers are always on hand to offer advice or prepare any cuts required.
The butchery offers fresh meat products ranging from the more traditional cuts such as beef roast or leg of lamb, to more contemporary choices such as stuffed chicken fillets, stir fry and marinated meats as well as award-winning sausages and home cured bacon.
Not only that, they have a large delicatessen offering homemade pies, sandwiches and desserts, plus a wide selection of fresh fruit and vegetables, wines and spirits along with gifts and cards.

Honeywells, Eaves Lane, Woodplumpton, Preston
Honeywells began selling home-reared pork from their garage. As customer demand grew, the Gornalls began to offer meat and local produce from neighbouring farms, including lamb from the Thornton family, which they still stock today. The Eaves Lane farm shop was built in November 2003. Moving into a purpose-built farm shop meant they could extend their range and include: locally-produced meats from the butchery; a selection of cooked meats, salami, fresh pies and pastries, and local and continental cheeses from the delicatessen; plus a range of other goodies.
