Waitrose is the first supermarket to own and manage a Farm Shop and cafe in the UK. It opened its doors to the public in August 2013 and has since become a popular destination to purchase fresh and local produce.
The farm shop sells all fresh produce, locally and regionally sourced from suppliers or Leckford Estate. Our products include: free range eggs, free range chickens, honey, apple juice, cider, mushrooms, milk, apples and pears.
Longstock Park Nursery is home to three National Collections Buddlejas, Gilchrist Collection of Penstemons and Clematis Viticella. Around the nursery, we grow our stock so visitors can see the full potential of the plants that they are buying.
Our aim is to introduce a wide range of unusual and robust plants, whilst maintaining our high quality.
