family run business
Villa Farm Shop is a true family run business offering quality local Yorkshire produce to local people. Peter and Sue Kershaw opened the shop in 1983 selling live rainbow trout, home produced milk and eggs, home-made cakes and pies. In June 2009, the family decided to expand and update the shop, by increasing the delicatessen and establishing an on-site butchery. The doors to the new look shop opened in November 2009 and by continuing to listen to our customers new and old we are able to enhance our range of goods.
We are a family run business that endeavours to offer a wide selection of quality, fresh, locally sourced, seasonal produce with the aim to surprise and tantilise your taste buds.
With Award Winning Homemade Sausages and Bacon, Fresh Home Produced Eggs and Milk, Own labelled Jams, Chutneys and Marmalades, Homemade Cakes and Scones, Freshly Baked Bread delivered Daily, Speciality Sandwiches and a Large Range of Gluten Free Produce there's something for everyones enjoyment.
With great emphasis on customer service and provenance of stock our aim is to limit food miles by offering as many locally produced quality goods as possible at affordable prices with 92% of our total suppliers for the farm shop being from Yorkshire.
Our on-site Butchers pride themselves on ensuring customer satisfaction with fresh meat produced by local farmers and suppliers, a growing reputation for fresh seasonal game and an every expanding ‘value-added’ range. We have many awards in the butchery including a long list of BPEX Gold & Silver Awards for our home-made sausages and bacon, 2013 Speciality Sausage Reserve Champion at The Great Yorkshire Pork Pie, Sausage and Products Competition, as well as 2nd place with our Butchers' Lambs at Penistone Show in 2013.
The Delicatessen boasts many delectable goods from cooked meats and award winning pies to tasty cheeses and unusual pates. Our ‘Taste of the Week’ is always popular and a good talking point!
Our gluten free range has rapidly expanded due to demand. We are now delighted to offer our own homemade gluten free sausages in 5 different flavours and burgers too. We have worked with the local Coeliac Society to listen to members’ requirements and source products they have difficulty finding elsewhere.
Villa Farm Eggs and Kershaws Milk are produced on our own farms, with the honey collected from beehives that are also situated on site great for hayfever and allergy sufferers.
We are continually informing customers of weekly offers and ‘Tastes of Week’ via our many boards both on the road and in the yard as well as via social media. We hold ‘Tasting Days’ throughout the year where we ask local suppliers to come and showcase their produce and offer tasters to our customers. With suppliers displaying their awards won on signs around the shop.
We are proud of our many achievements and awards including those from the butchery we are delighted to hold a 5 star food and hygiene rating. In previous years have won ‘Best out of Town’ category of Huddersfield in Blooms and last year were pronounced the overall winners of the competition.
We not only strive to source local suppliers but we like to support local events too. The Totally Locally Markets in Brighouse(less than 2 miles away), and our local Charity the Forget me not Trust.
