Newlyns Farm Shop, Cookery School & Cafe
Lodge Farm, North Warnborough, Nr. Hook, RG29 1HA
Newlyns Farm is a family-run business operating a 500-acre traditional mixed farm with beef cattle, outdoor pigs, sheep and free-range chickens, as well as free-range turkeys at Christmas. Its farm shops in North Warnborough and Weyhill sell a wide variety of farm-reared meats and local seasonal produce including fruit and vegetables, free-range eggs, cheeses and deli foods like cured hams, patés and pies, as well as homemade ready meals using farm produce, and much more. This year has seen the opening of the fabulous farm café with an outside patio area and small pens of farm animals to keep the kids entertained. Visitors can enjoy seasonal specials featuring ingredients straight from the farm shop, including homemade soups, wholesome stews, salads, baguettes, the famous Newlyns Gladiator Burger and a Thai beef salad made with Newlyns 21-day-hung rump steak. Every Thursday is 'Young'uns Night', although grown-ups are still more than welcome to a glass of wine supplied by Caviste - the Newlyns in-house independent wine merchants. Newlyns Cookery School is designed to show budding chefs the best ways to get the most out of the seasonal foods on offer in the farm shop. From demonstrations to five-hour hands-on courses, children's courses, butchery courses and private tuition for beginners and those looking to host the perfect dinner party, there's something for everyone.
