Farm veg shop, bakery & café, and brewery

Horsenden farm has a volunteer veg/farm produce stall and two resident food/drink businesses (the Horsenden Loaf, and Perivale Brewery). They each have their own stall and days/times/seasons of opening:

The farm shop is open on Saturdays 10-12 during the picking season. It’s a seasonal stall run by the volunteer veg growers, and all proceeds go to supporting the farm.. Freshly picked farm grown veg and preserves and juices/cordials (all made on site, and mostly with ingredients we grow) are available around May to the end of October. Because we grow most our veg outside in the beds, the start of the season is dependent on how warm/cold spring is, so look out for notices on the FB group around April.

As well as the farm produce, you can usually pick up some unique hand crafted gifts from local artists and crafters such as Bead Sew Crafty and Milly Mills.

The Horsenden Loaf café and bakery is open Fridays 11-2, and Saturdays and Sundays 10-4. They offer excellent freshly roasted coffee (cappuccino, espresso, latte, etc), tea, matcha and hot chocolate. They also hand make and freshly cook a variety of savoury and sweet breads and pastries using good quality ingredients. Their offerings include: sausage rolls and veggie pastries, flatbreads (cheese, cheese and onion, and onion and rosemary), small batches of cob loaf sourdoughs on Saturdays, and scrumptious sweet treats: doughnuts in a variety of mouthwatering flavours (Madagascan vanilla, Belgian chocolate, salted caramel, and their own raspberry jam), dark chocolate gooey brownies, white chocolate and blueberry muffins, and amarettis, all freshly baked. There’s also seasonally available jams, chutneys and juices/cordials, made in the kitchen using local produce.

Perivale Brewery usually are open on Saturdays 10-4, selling bottles of beer (and sometimes pulling draft pints). They brew onsite in very small batches – there’s often the lovely smell of hops wafting around the courtyard! As a micro brewery they have their regulars/staples but also a variety of seasonal (and sometimes one-off) beers, often using locally foraged ingredients. Contact the brewery directly to check their availability, to reserve beers for collection, or with any enquiries.
