While we stock the very best from local suppliers, we also provide a quality range of Waitrose & Partners essentials for our customers’ everyday shopping needs.
Our Partners are all knowledgeable and passionate about our produce – and our dedicated Supplier Liaison Partner seeks out suppliers and producers who share our values and work sustainably and ethically.
Our team is passionate about finding the most delicious, highest-quality produce – taste tests obligatory (and all part of the job!).
We stock a range of deli meats in our chiller that we’re sure you’ll love as much as we do.
These are from an award-winning regional supplier based in Cornwall. They use prime cuts of meat sourced from local producers, with no artificial colourings, flavourings or phosphates.
What’s more, they use only renewable sources of electricity and keep packaging to a minimum.
Meats include artisan salami, prosciutto, coppa, bresaola and pancetta.
Our range of cheeses has something to suit all tastes and occasions, including many tempting local and regional options.

We have the perfect solution for those busy midweek dinners or weekend evenings when you just want to relax: Cook ready meals, available in our freezer year-round.
Cook produces a range of hearty and comforting options that you can enjoy on your own or with your friends and family. The company has the best chefs and uses the best ingredients, so all their meals taste homemade.
As the team at Cook would say, “even good cooks enjoy a night off.” There’s no need to compromise on taste just because you’re not doing the cooking!
You’ll love our sweet treat selection, featuring traditional sweets that you’ll remember from your childhood as well as a variety of flavoured chocolate.
If you’re a chocoholic, then you must try Love Cocoa’s range. This chocolate producer not only has unrivalled chocolate-making credentials, it cares about the impact the cocoa industry can have on local communities. For every chocolate bar sold, the company will plant a tree.
While artisanal treats are always appreciated, we want to make sure your everyday items are covered too.
So, we stock a wide range of fresh produce from the Waitrose & Partners farm, organic bread from artisan bakeries, seasonal fruit and vegetables from a supplier in Hampshire, and our own apples and pears from our farm’s orchards in early autumn.
In our chiller, we have a selection of meat products from John Thorner’s butchers in Somerset, bringing you excellent quality and value.
Wines, beers and spirits
Leckford is a producer of sparkling wine, so we’re pleased to bring you this and a carefully curated selection of other English tipples.
Many of the wines we stock come from Hampshire, such as Somborne Valley Vineyard, Danebury Vineyards and Hattingley Valley. Others are from nearby regions, such as Chapel Down, Alder Ridge Vineyard, Denbies and Bolney.
Our drinks range features locally brewed beers, from pale to the darkest brews, all with their own character. Ciders from the local area include Leckford’s very own.
Lots of our spirits are local and regional, too, including gin that uses the clear waters of the River Test and vodka crafted from the by-products of cheese production. One of our favourites is Beeble Whiskey, which was created by a honey producer that didn’t want to waste any of the product from its hives.
Fresh Cut Flowers
Our fresh flowers are always seasonal and the majority are locally grown or sourced from British growers. Our supplier, Featherstone’s English Flower Company, grows flowers within the season March - November and uses growing methods that don’t cost the Earth! They also package their bouquets in 100% recyclable and compostable wrapping and string.
At the farm shop we look forward to their seasonal weekly delivery of wild and whimsical blooms and we’re sure you will love taking home a bouquet for your home too.
Gifting & Homeware
Next time someone you know has a celebration, why not give them one of our eco-friendly greeting cards? The card is sourced from well-managed forests, the inks used are vegetable-based, and all envelopes are made from recycled paper with fully compostable outer slips.
Continuing our sustainable gifting initiatives, we have removed all glitter products from our ranges on sale, just like the rest of the John Lewis Partnership.
And it’s not just cards and wrap we offer. We also showcase delightful homeware and gifting options, all crafted by guest artists from Hampshire. Using farming, animals and the outdoors as their theme, they’ve produced a range of fun and quirky items you won’t find anywhere else. These include pictures, pots, tablecloths and tableware – perfect for treating yourself to or give to a lucky loved one.
We also stock beautiful individually designed glassware produced in the county.
