Farm Shops

WHAT IS A FARM SHOP?


A farm shop is usually a sales space on the farm itself. The farm shop is usually located on the farm, but in some cases also in the village center (depending on proximity). Sometimes there is no real store at all. For example, many farmers sell straight from their shed. Products such as apples, pears, potatoes … are offered from large bins in a corner of the sorting room. Only the sale of dairy and meat requires cooling and therefore a real retail space that must meet strict hygiene requirements.

SPACE ON THE SPOT

A farm shop is usually a space within the farm itself. For example, it can be a fully equipped butcher’s shop, but it can also be sold simply from the barn or sorting area.

ASSORTMENT

The assortment in a farm shop can vary greatly. Farmers sell their own products and collaborate together with other colleagues.

WHY SHOULD I BUY FROM A FARM SHOP?

The farm shop is often located on the farm itself, which makes for a special experience. You can immediately see where the products come from. Moreover, you come into contact with the person who has grown, grown or produced your products . In turn, the producer knows who will eat his products. And just like with the other sales types of the short chain, you know exactly where your products come from. The farmer produces, grows and processes his own products and offers these directly to you, without intermediaries.

WHICH FARM PRODUCTS CAN I BUY AT A FARM SHOP?

The farm’s own products (primary or processed) are sold in the farm shop. Usually the farmer only sells his own products, sometimes he supplements his range with farm products from fellow farmers. The assortment in the short chain is sometimes even more extensive than in the supermarket . You will find more exclusive vegetables, meat preparations, potato varieties …
