Daylesford is an organic farm, market garden, cafe and cookery school. Located near Kingham in the heart of The Cotswolds, with its lush green valleys and rolling hills dotted with sheep, it has become an increasing pull over the years for our customers, who love visiting this area of quintessential England and this very English establishment. And if you're still one of those people that associate England with bad food, think again - we promise you'll be pleasantly surprised! Think risotto of asparagus and new potatoes wild garlic pesto and Parmesan, or beetroot cured salmon with sour cream, Sicilian lemon and pumpernickel bread. Mmmm delicious... our taste buds are watering already!
If you're into food, Daylesford is a pretty inspiring place to visit; the produce in the shop is presented beautifully, and menu in the cafe is full of fresh ideas for making the most of the season's crops. Follow their Instagram for a sneak peek. If you want to go one step further and invest in the organic lifestyle for the long term, we suggest you book a place at their cookery school. There's a wide array of workshops and sessions to choose from, including 'Wild Food & Foraging' (our personal favourite!), 'Artisan Bread Making for Beginners', 'Seasonal Dinner Party', and 'Perfect Puddings', to name but a few.
Shopping in daylesford
Most of the produce you can buy and/or eat at Daylesford is from the farm itself, which is committed to sustainable principles and farming methods that are in harmony with the environment. As they explain: "all our food comes straight from our farm to your fork: our meat and poultry, fruit and vegetables from our market garden, bread from our bakery, and cheese, milk and yoghurt from our creamery." Where they sell other products, they source from artisan suppliers who share their commitment to quality and sustainability.
