Food tastes better when it is grown and produced with passion and that’s exactly what you will find in our farm shop. Cool creamy milk, fresh morning bread, delicious meat from locally reared animals, vegetables fresh from the ground and the farm's free range eggs with rich yellow yokes. Remember those?
We were very chuffed to receive an accolade from The British Cheese Awards. Low Sizergh Barn is one of only 200 shops & restaurants in the country to be highly recommended for a great selection of British cheese. We have a big gold badge in the cheese counter to show off our new status. Pride of place goes to the three cheeses made with milk from our herd by Chris Sandham of Rostock Dairy: Kendal Creamy, Kendal Crumbly and Kendal Crumbly with Red Onion.
Since the farm shop opened in 1991 we have been an outlet for fully traceable meat from local farmers, game keepers and butchers. It’s no wonder that the beef, lamb, pork is so popular, and even better that rare breeds like the middle white pig are being bred to accommodate demand for people that take a keen interest in the provenance of their meat.
The produce section is extensive and glorious. Every season seems to bring a new selection of colourful, tasty vegetables to the shelves. There’s everything you’d need and lots more you’d want. Bags of mixed salad leaves from the polytunnels on the farm are an instant hit (especially in winter when Growing Well put spicy mizuna in the mix)
Drinks, the deli counter, preserves grocery – whatever you need for a full shop – picnic or dinner party, with lots of local flavours for your delectation.
Green Door artist Mike Barlow is the latest local artist to exhibit here in the Low Sizergh Barn tea room.
His paintings and constructions will be on show until the 5th of July, they combine two elements of his earlier work – constructions from found wood and abstract/symbolic painting.
The found material often comes from beaches around Morecambe Bay and the west coast of Scotland as well as the clutter of Mike's studio. Mike says: "my tendency is to avoid the figurative and explicit, following my nose until an image or effect suggest itself. Colour, balance, design and the intrinsic qualities of found materials are my main pre-occupations, with titles often added afterwards."
