If you want to shop a bit more locally, seasonally, and sustainably, heading to your nearest farm shop is a brilliant idea. This post features an up to date list of almost all Dorset farm shops, broken down by location to help you find the right one.
There’s a huge variety of shops to discover. From small-scale vendors selling meat straight out of the farm freezer, to larger shops offering locally-made products from around the county. Some even have onsite cafes where you can grab a homecooked meal or yummy cake! So get out and discover what’s on offer at your local farm shop. And if you think there’s somewhere missing from this list, please leave a comment so I can add it in!
Please note, the following lists are numbered, but the entries are in no particular order. I’ve tried to include every Dorset Farm Shop on this list, and they’re ordered by location only.
