Granny Gothards

Granny Gothards, artisan ice-cream hand-made in Mid Devon

From Field to Fork:

With over 15 years of dedication to crafting their artisan ice cream and sorbets, Granny Gothards has earned acclaim both locally here in Mid Devon and internationally. Their commitment to quality is unwavering – every batch is hand-made in Mid Devon to maintain the exceptional standard set from day one.

With more than 195 flavours created (and counting!), from much loved favourites like their strawberries & cream to rice pudding flavour, and even bespoke alcoholic flavours like a Tribute flavoured ice-cream! There is something for everyone to enjoy. What truly sets this handcrafted ice cream apart is the commitment to authenticity. No artificial flavours, preservatives, or shortcuts are taken - but you get the sweet, velvety, and irresistibly creamy taste every time.

At Granny Gothards, they believe that Mother Nature provides all the best ingredients. The secret to their unique flavour lies in the daily delivery of the first milking from Oak Park Dairy (situated nearby in Clyst Hidon, Cullompton) – a blend of Jersey and Friesian breeds, renowned for their deliciously high butterfat milk. Mixed with thick double cream from Gundenhams, a West Country Dairy, they create a crème anglaise with Clarence Court egg yolks and a secret sugar blend. From the cows in the fields to the homemade mixing process, Granny Gothards truly goes from field to fork (or cone!) here in Mid Devon.

It's this hand-made, slow-churning process that infuses the ice cream with a luscious consistency, ensuring that each scoop is a moment of pure indulgence.

Experience the Granny Gothards taste – a symphony of passion, natural flavours, and a dedication to quality. You can purchase locally at Fordmore Farm Shop & Cafe, in cafes across Mid Devon and the UK, and on their online store.

Waterhouse Fayre

Taste Mid Devon: From Field to Fork with Waterhouse Fayre

Waterhouse Fayre began in Ann Stallard's kitchen in January 2004. What began as a creative solution to a surplus of raspberries has blossomed into an award-winning venture, now showcasing preserves throughout Devon, the West Country and beyond – from farm shops and delicatessens to tea rooms, restaurants and hotels.

Ann and her husband Neil grow the fruit on their own land in Burlescombe, Tiverton for the perfect homemade taste. With seven acres of land, Neil oversees the fruit growing, ensuring a steady supply for their traditional, small batch production.

Dedicated to sourcing premium ingredients and cooking in small batches, Ann emphasises local connections and has cultivated strong relationships with her local Devon growers. The relocation from South Molton to Tiverton in 2015 expanded their production capabilities, allowing Ann, Neil, and niece Lucy to continue crafting their tasty products! Family plays a vital role in this business, and their passion is made evident in their quality preserves.

Their chutneys are must have for cheese lovers, and the perfect condiment for a cheese and wine night! And their sweet preserves are best paired with some Devonshire scones & cream or some warm, toasty bread!

The Kitchen @25 in Crediton are renowned for their quality cheese boards, with delicious locally sourced cheese from Quickes and the award-winning chutneys from Waterhouse Fayre. The specialist cheesemongers at Kitchen@25 invite you to explore and create your perfect cheeseboard with their expert assistance.

Bakers Devon Honey

Bakers Devon Honey, tasty and pure honey & honeycomb

From Field to Fork:

Paul and Kim Baker run their business, Bakers Devon Honey, from their farm in Bradninch, Cullompton. They care for the bees on their farm and in return receive pure honey and honeycomb.

The natural honey is full of all the right goodness and makes the perfect condiment to pair with some warm, buttery toast.  Or drizzled over some porridge to add some yummy sweetness! Paul and Kim’s commitment to their business, as well as the local environment and wildlife, is made evident in their wonderful produce.

Not only this, the bees themselves play a key part in their integrative, regenerative farming methods. When the bees visit flowers, they spread their pollen and nectar, helping to improve soil microbial activity and nutrient cycling. This pollination process in turn improves the crop yield.

As you can see, you will find an abundance of beautiful wild flower meadows at Paul and Kim’s farm – a wonderful habitat for all sorts of wildlife and the perfect playground for their bees!

Their 350 acre farm comprises of grassland and arable, with large areas adorned with wildflowers. The beehives are occasionally moved around the farm to be closer to the food sources, so that they can forage through the wildflower plots and the extensive woodland adjoining the farm.

Their pure honey is made on-site, and is available locally across Mid Devon. You can purchase Bakers Devon Honey from the Stokehouse Farm vending machines (self-serve stations at the Moorhayes Community Centre in Tiverton and the Culm Valley Sports Centre in Cullompton. Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week). You can also order honey from their Facebook page @DevonHoney, and get it delivered straight to your door.

Appledore Farm Eggs

Appledore Farm Eggs, fresh local and free range 

From Field to Fork:

At Appledore Farm Eggs, a family-run farm near Tiverton, Adam and his family care for their flock of happy free-range hens.

All of their chickens lead happy and healthy lives, they are free to roam the green pasture of the Devon hills and are fed specially formulated feed (created by the family on their own farm!) to produce tasty eggs, with strong quality shells and rich golden yolks.

The wheat and oats used for their chicken feed is grown and milled on their farm, which ensures they know exactly what goes into their girls’ feed.

This process, which was also used by the family’s great-grandfather who once owned the poultry farm, creates the lovely rich yolk that Appledore Farm Eggs are renowned for! Their home-mixing is also key to keeping the food miles down; their wheat fields are all within eight miles of their happy hens and their on-farm mill. The feed gets harvested in the autumn for the following year’s food.

By producing their own feed and selling their eggs locally, Appledore Farm Eggs are supporting the field to fork process. Reducing food-miles is imperative to lowering the carbon footprint associated with transportation. Local sourcing decreases the need for long-haul transportation, leading to fewer greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly food system.

Appledore deliver fresh eggs to the award-winning Bakehouse Café Bar in Cullompton. Here, you can order home-cooked, locally sourced meals – perhaps a delicious fry up with quality eggs that go from the field to the fork within Mid Devon! Fried, poached or scrambled, you will taste the difference with Appledore Farm Eggs. Whatever you decide, you will be greeted at the Bakehouse with a warm welcome and the smell of fresh coffee & homemade delights.

Quicke's Cheese

Quicke's Cheese, beautifully hand-crafted here in Mid Devon.

Taste Mid Devon: From Field to Fork

Quicke's is a family-owned artisan cheese producer with a heritage that spans generations. Nestled in the heart of the Mid Devon countryside, they have been farming here since 1540 and producing award-winning cheese since 1973.

Interestingly, we have Anne Boleyn to thank for the creation of Quickes Cheese. It was because of her that Henry VIII fell out with the Catholic Church, dissolved the monasteries and reallocated their land. Some of that land – a particularly beautiful stretch near Newton St Cyres in Devon, to be precise - he allotted to a chap called Thomas Bidwell. And when a distant Quicke ancestor, Richard Quicke, walked Thomas' daughter Elizabeth up the aisle of the local church, the Quicke family became established in this green and very pleasant corner of Devon.

Cows

Today Mary and Jane Quicke run the cheese business, they are mother and daughter and 14th / 15th generation Quickes! They use the same time-honoured methods and recipes that have been passed down throughout generations – so that each bite encapsulates the essence of history, craftsmanship, and a true passion for quality.

The rich red Devon soil and Mid Devon’s climate provide the best conditions for lush pasture, on which Quickes' herd of cows are out grazing for most of the year. Each type of cheese, which is lovingly hand-crafted by their expert cheesemakers, is patiently matured in their bespoke ageing rooms. The art of this ageing process allows the flavour to develop and intensify, resulting in unparalleled depth and flavour. Every stage of the farming, cheese making, and maturation process plays its part in achieving the fantastic flavours present in each cheese.

Any cheese you choose, whether it be the mellow creaminess of Quicke's Buttery Cheddar or the intense richness of the Mature Clothbound cheddar, you will taste the true passion and dedication that goes into each bite.

You can buy Quicke's products locally in their on-site shop, which is a great way to keep your food miles down as their mouth-watering cheese is made and sold on the same farm! They also sell a range of local produce, including Waterhouse Fayre jams & chutneys (keep an eye out for their upcoming Field to Fork feature!) a perfect condiment to elevate any flavour.

From field to fork within Mid Devon - you will also find wonderful Quicke's produce at the Kitchen @25 in Crediton, a traditional delicatessen, cheesemonger, and bistro offering an array of local delights. As specialist cheesemongers, with delicious locally sourced cheese from Quicke's and chutneys from Waterhouse Fayre, Kitchen @25 invite you to explore and create your perfect cheeseboard with their expert assistance.

Quicke's also offer guided tours of the farm throughout the spring and summer, where you can find out more about their expert production process.

[caption id="attachment_6523" align="aligncenter" width="556"] Quickes Cheese being served at Kitchen @25 in Crediton[/caption]

Quickes’ “field to fork” approach to producing, allows the local community to celebrate and preserve these unique food traditions. This not only contributes to a strong sense of place, but keeps unique traditions alive.

Little Bishops Organics

Taste Mid Devon: From Field to Fork with Little Bishops Organics

Nestled on three acres of land in Kentisbeare, just three miles from Cullompton, Little Bishops Organics are the perfect source for your organic vegetables. They are certified organic by the Soil Association and grow good quality, healthy veg in a way that benefits the soil, wildlife and the  local community.

Dave and Chloe, who work on the farm, believe in the importance of locally grown fruit and veg. Not only because it means better quality, but they believe that it fosters strong community connections – it allows the consumer to connect with the growers and become more aware of the effort and love that goes into its production! By growing local seasonal produce, Chloe and Dave are introducing a rich and diverse array of fruit & veg. This promotes a wonderfully varied diet that the community can enjoy.

Keeping it small scale and local means that Little Bishops veg is fresh, seasonal and comes with hardly any packaging. They grow over 50 varieties of vegetables from tomatoes, aubergines, sweetcorn and cucumbers in summer, to cauliflowers, leeks, cabbages and celeriac in winter. And, they have three polytunnels allowing them to grow popular salad leaves all year round.

They supply the award-winning The Lost Kitchen in Tiverton, a well-renowned restaurant that offers the perfect venue for a tasty breakfast, lunch or dinner. With a seasonally inspired menu & seasonal veggies from Little Bishops, diners can experience flavours that are at their peak during specific times of the year. This promotion of seasonal eating not only supports sustainable agricultural practices, but creates a varied menu bursting with new tastes and flavours!

Chloe’s family have been on Bishops Farm since 1915, and her and her family strongly believe in farming organically. This sustainable and environmentally friendly approach not only ensures that Little Bishops veg is high-quality & always fresh, but helps support and maintain biodiversity. This diversity is essential for ecosystem health.

As well as at The Lost Kitchen, you can purchase their veg at Cullompton Farmers’ Market, Kentisbeare Village Stores and Post Office, or sign up for a box via their Community Supported Agriculture veg box scheme.

Rull Orchard

Taste Mid Devon: From Field to Glass with Rull Orchard

Rull Orchard is a cidery with an aim to work with nature, not against it. The orchard not only produces award-winning quality cider, fresh honey from their bees, and tasty fruit juices – it has also become a self-sufficient and ecologically sustainable site. They keep it simple and sustainable so every drop is infused with a little idyllic Devonshire countryside.

Mike and Claire, who run the orchard at Northdown Road in Bickleigh, have made it their mission to provide provenance on their products. They aim to increase local biodiversity by managing and promoting new wildlife, endorse ecological sustainability by using no pesticides or insecticides, and be environmentally sustainable by working on a carbon-negative footprint.

The conditions of the soil in Mid Devon make it perfect to grow fruit trees at Rull Orchard, which are then hand-picked to create unique tasting ciders and fruit juices. Mike and Claire have combined traditional and modern techniques into their cider production process to ensure the end-product is extra special. Their sparkling apple cider is a delightful and invigorating drink that captures the essence of autumnal orchards and joyous celebrations.

Mike is also one of the first pomeliers in the country, so be sure to try his rich and sweet Pomological cider which is created using a blend of the boldest apples from a neighbouring orchard that is over 130 years old! It's big, bold and complex and pairs beautifully with cheese - the bigger the better!

You can find their award-winning products at local farmers markets across Mid Devon, as well as across Somerset and Devon. They also host on-site events in the spring and summer, so be sure to keep an eye on their socials for any up-coming events.

Bloomberry Juice

Bloomberry Juice

Bloomberry Juice is a family run business which was set up to provide fresh juice cocktails and smoothies at various events throughout the country. Within a year of starting people were asking to take home our juices. This launched the juice cocktails in glass bottles with a twist of bloom in our berry drinks. Since then, Bloomberry Juice has produced a diverse range of drinks, using local ingredients where possible. We press our own apples and freeze until required for production, enabling us to maintain freshness.

Our guiding principles – we don’t use added sugar [only local honey in 2 products], we don’t add preservatives or any other additive, and no concentrated juices, just pressed. So our products are as natural as they can be. We collect our own floral extracts in season, fuse and freeze until required. We introduce new recipes when new fruit become available, like our Apple & Blackcurrant. We try to give those not drinking alcohol a satisfying experience whether drunk in a wine glass or high glass with ice or even with sparkling water for a more refreshing drink.

Fordmore Farm Shop and Cafe

Taste Mid Devon: From Field to Fork with Fordmore Farm Shop

Situated just outside of Cullompton, Fordmore Farm Shop and Café is a family run and owned farm shop, selling the best Devon has to offer.

Embracing organic farming for nearly three decades, Fordmore Farm Shop is a stronghold for sustainability and animal welfare. They work closely with small farmers who share their values, ensuring that their meat is not only delicious but aligns with their ethical standards. They also farm their own herd of Longhorn cows, which are free to roam out on Mid Devon pasture for the majority of their lives.

Longhorns are a slow-growing British breed and boast a variety of brindle colours, from red to grey, with a distinctive white line or "finching" along their backs and tails. Unlike other breeds that mature in just 18 months, Longhorns take between 2.5 to 3 years to reach full maturity.

At Fordmore Farm Shop, a commitment to working in harmony with the natural environment is paramount. The ethos revolves around not pushing these remarkable cows beyond their natural capabilities, allowing them to lead fulfilling lives roaming on Mid Devon's organic pastures. They enjoy the occasional top-up of home-grown silage, ensuring a sustainable and ethical approach.

When you choose Longhorn beef from Fordmore Farm Shop, you're not just selecting a superior product; you're supporting a philosophy that prioritizes the well-being of the animals and the environment.

Fordmore are dedicated to quality and sustainability; producing a significant amount of goods from their own farm, whilst the rest is sourced from local suppliers. From fruit and vegetables to dairy, deli goods, bakery treats, and artisanal chutneys and jams – their offerings are a celebration of seasonal, locally sourced treasures.

Indulge in the farm-to-table experience at Fordmore, where their commitment to quality extends to home-cooked delights, including mouth-watering burgers that capture the essence of their carefully curated ingredients.

The farm shop also has on-site animals and a play park for kids - making it perfect for a day out with the family. You can grab some lunch, do a spot of shopping and let the kids enjoy some playtime. And, make sure to keep an eye out for the upcoming launch of their new fish shop!

Wellhayes Vineyard

Award-winning wine, hand-made in Mid Devon

Taste Mid Devon: From Field to Glass with Wellhayes Vineyard 

Nestled in the rolling hills of Mid Devon, Wellhayes Vineyard is a testament to the passion and dedication of Alison and Simon Routh, who embarked on their wine-making journey in 2008.

They began only planting 150 vines on five rows, each showcasing a different grape variety – Reichensteiner, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Bacchus. Over the years, they have expanded their vineyard to a full hectare, now boasting a total of 2,500 vines and winning a series of awards for their wonderful sparkling wines!

Simon and Alison produce their outstanding wine right on-site in their old stone barn, utilising traditional methods. The vineyard’s red Devon soil is deep and well-drained, providing the perfect conditions for the vines, whose roots thrive by diving deep down and taking in all the best nutrients! You can find out more about their production process and take a tour of the vineyard and winery at one of their esteemed tours, which run from May to September each year. If you are lucky, you can even attend a concert on their vineyard as they tend to hold a few each year!

[caption id="attachment_6608" align="aligncenter" width="575"] Wellhayes Vineyard Tour[/caption]

[caption id="attachment_6609" align="aligncenter" width="576"] Wellhayes Winery Tour[/caption]

Wellhayes’ signature sparkling wine is an award-winning delight – the wine has a gentle mousse and light acidity with a refreshing taste of strawberry and a hint of raspberry. The fine bubbles make it effervescent and lively, offering a delightful and celebratory drinking experience - perfect for any occasion!

What sets this vintage apart is its meticulous aging process. Having spent 2-3 years 'on the lees’, the wine has acquired a depth and sophistication that enhances its character. This patient maturation period has allowed the flavours to harmonize, resulting in a seamless integration of fruity notes and a subtle richness.

The awards bestowed upon this vintage, including a bronze medal from the Independent English Wine Awards and the International Wine Challenge, as well as a gold medal in the Taste of the West, further attest to its exceptional quality.

Exe Valley Glamping

Exe Valley Glamping

Welcome to Exe Valley Glamping. Set within 150 acres on our family farm, Exe Valley Glamping is the perfect place to reconnect with nature. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and relax with friends & family - all without sacrificing home comforts.

About Us

Exe Valley Glamping was established by father and son team - Robin & Patrick.  ​Wanting to diversify their family farm by promoting responsible and sustainable tourism, glamping was an appealing option to both country enthusiasts.  Patrick has over two decades of hospitality experience. Having recently moved his young family back to Devon, he felt it was an opportunity to put his experience into something closer to his heart.

"Mid Devon is a great spot.  It's full of old world charm and retains a sense of a by-gone era, which is really appealing to those wanting to experience an authentic holiday or staycation."

The pair set off to create what is an ever evolving project, offering guests tailored experiences, sumptuous hospitality and a wealth of natural activities to engage.

Canvas Lodges

Up a woodland trail, you'll find a secret hideaway revealing each of our canvas lodges.  Their unique charm and thoughtful design will provide not just comfort, but an experience the whole family will enjoy. Everything you require for a perfect nature escape is here.

Each tent is purpose-built to make your glamping holiday fuss-free and easy so you can relax and unwind from everyday stresses.  Powered by nature, our eco-conscious lodges use solar energy and wood collected through woodland management. This provides heat and maximum comfort without relinquishing the benefits or adventure of outdoor living.

Soft linen, plump pillows & cozy duvets will be beckoning at the end of each day.  Snuggling down for the night will be about as difficult as waking up to birdsong, the smell of freshly ground coffee & knowing you have a breakfast hamper full of fresh goodies on your doorstep.  It is luxury camping after all!

Tents feature 3 bedrooms - one King & one Twin, each with their own access to the shower & loo.  The twin can be converted into a generous Superking for couples sharing. But the ultimate snug is the whimsical cabin bedroom featuring its own canopy, double mattress & hatched doors. It also doubles up as the perfect children's den and night-time refuge (if you can get there first!)

Wilderness adventures for the whole family.

Kids love nothing better than sleeping under canvas, toasting marshmallows, and discovering wildlife hidden under logs and in pebbled streams.  At Exe Valley Glamping, the whole family can enjoy woodland walks, picnics on the River Exe or wading on the pebbled bank.  All just a stone’s throw from your tent!

Each canvas tent has board games, puzzles and books so families can enjoy precious time and unwind together.  Whatever age your kids, there's something for everyone; adventures for thrill seekers, explorers, and moochers.
