The Waitrose Farm
We are a 4,000 acre estate near Stockbridge, Hampshire. The estate was purchased in 1929 by John Spedan Lewis, founder of the John Lewis Partnership, and we have been farming it now for nearly 90 years. We are the Waitrose Farm and the only UK retailer owned farm. Our produce is supplied to Waitrose stores across the country. The estate is diverse and our commercial businesses span property, food production, farming, retail and leisure activities.
We care passionately about British farming and the environment and we have been a LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) demonstration farm since 2004.
We are a team of 150 Partners and we practice 'The Waitrose Way' of healthy living, fair treatment, treading lightly on the environment and championing British produce.
We are a working farm and we welcome visitors to our retail shops. Visitors can also enjoy chalk stream and lake fly fishing, golf and our unique water gardens via prior booking arrangements.
The Farm Shop and Cafe serve breakfasts, light lunches, drinks and teas.
The Farm Shop is open 9am – 5.30pm, Monday to Saturday and 10am - 4pm on Sunday.
