MARKING THE MILESTONE

We’re celebrating our 20th anniversary with a collection of limited edition items in the signature Daylesford style.

We have never given away a plastic carrier bag at Daylesford since we opened 20 years ago. The iconic image of handsome pedigree South Devon cattle on our organic Cotswolds farm has long featured on our paper shopping bags, and is now available on a  cotton canvas bag that will last for years.

20 YEARS OF THE ORIGINAL ORGANIC FARMSHOP

Carole Bamford first realised the negative impact of artificial chemicals and pesticides in 1976. She began converting her family’s farmland to organic practices and eventually gained full Soil Association accreditation. In 2002 we opened the doors to Daylesford Organic in the Cotswolds – the original organic farmshop.

RECIPE

DAYLESFORD ORCHARD SALAD WITH FLAT-IRON CHICKEN

One of the most popular items from our café menus, this dish is wonderful to prepare and serve at home.

The candied pecans provide a delicious crunch, while the apple and honey-mustard dressing give a subtle sweetness.

OUR BAKERY

We bake award-winning organic bread, cakes and pastries each day in the Bakery on our farm. We use slow fermentation methods in order to develop the flavours, and shape loaves by hand in the true artisan way without the use of additives or chemicals. The fresh baked goods arrive in our farmshops just a few hours after leaving the Bakery.

OUR MARKET GARDEN

We grow over 300 varieties of seasonal organic fruit, vegetables, salad leaves and herbs on our 28 acre Market Garden at Daylesford, including many unusual and heritage varieties.

You can find much of this fresh produce in our farmshops, in the dishes served in our café, on our food-to-go counters and in our award-winning ready-to-cook meals and soups, jams and chutneys.

OUR CREAMERY

The creamy, rich milk from our organic herd travels just yards from the milking parlour to the Creamery on our farm, where it is transformed into award-winning cheeses as well as delicious yoghurt, butter, buttermilk and kefir.

The milk itself really is something special, thanks to the clover-rich grass pasture enjoyed by our cows. We choose not to homogenise our milk because we prefer to leave it in its natural form, with thick cream that rises to the top.

OUR KITCHENS

A dedicated artisan team make our award-winning ‘real meals’ in the kitchens on our farm.

The broths, soups, and braises are made by hand in small batches, using fresh organic ingredients. Ready to reheat and ideal for freezing, they are perfect for times you want to enjoy a nourishing, flavourful meal at home without having to worry about shopping, cooking or washing up.

OUR BUTCHER

Our animals are raised organically in line with the Soil Association’s high standards. We are committed to rearing our high-welfare animals organically and slowly, in harmony with nature, from their natural diets to the freedom to roam our lush organic pastures. We take the greatest care at every step of our animals’ lives – we even built our own abattoir to ensure the best welfare, reducing food miles and stress, for better tasting meat.

OUR SMOKEHOUSE

Our smoked salmon is made by hand on our farm in small batches, using sustainably caught fish from British waters and a secret smoking recipe including juniper, beech and oak.

The modern, thick sashimi-cut style accentuates the texture and naturally sweet flavour of each slice. Delicious on its own, or with scrambled Legbar eggs, creamy avocado or farmhouse butter and our fruity pumpernickel bread.
