We have a small but perfectly formed team of experts working at Betty’s Farm. We are also joined on a regular basis by work experience students.

Our four aims are to:

  • Achieve high animal welfare
  • Employ locally
  • Reduce our impact on the environment
  • To be part of the community

Betty’s Farm was a greenfield site back in 2009 being used for arable production. It was bought by the John Bowler Franchise and converted into a free range laying hen unit in 2010 run by Emma and Simon Ruff. Emma started selling eggs from a trestle table every Saturday and this led to the shop which opened in 2011. The farm shop is named after John Bowler’s mother, Betty.

Back in June 2012 we decided to rent the whole farm and since then Simon has joined the team permanently to help on farm and to develop the butchery.

Betty’s Farm is always trying to make buying our produce as easy and convenient as possible.

As well as our farm shop in Willington we have an online shop, to enter the online shop click here.

Also available: Fresh vegetables, speciality cheeses, fresh bread, (Luke Evans) cakes, local beers, (Derventio, Tollgate and others), jams, conserves and condiments.

As well as the instore butchers, you can also purchase home made pies, sausage rolls, pork pies, and home prepared easy meals.
