Betty's Farm and Shop
We are open seven days a week to give our customers the best service possible. Our shop range has increased rapidly since we first opened, meaning that we stock a wider variety of products than ever before. We stock many local producers some of which have gained the acclaimed TASTE Award. We love stocking small independent suppliers, such as the Duffield Dairy, but we also stock some larger suppliers like Thorntons who are based in Alfreton, just 20 miles away. We try to stick to the rule that 70% of our produce is local (within 20 miles) and the 20% is regional (from a county adjoining Derbyshire) and a minimal amount is sourced outside of that. We stock a variety of gluten and sugar free goods for those with dietary requirements and because we make all our butchery items onsite, the butchery is very flexible in accommodating allergies or special requests. Betty's Farm also stocks a variety of pet food so you can feed your pets as well as yourself after your visit. We can make hampers and planters up all year round - making excellent personalised presents.
Our butchery sources meat from not only our own farm but from other local farms who share our philosophy that animals left to range freely in high welfare systems give much tastier, tender meat. We use Longhorn cattle that's been allowed to slowly mature in the lush pastures of North Leicestershire. We then dry age the meat here at Betty's for four weeks, to ensure quality and flavour, as standard. That means our burgers are made from the same premium beef as our fillet steak. Our chicken and pork comes from Packington Free Range, where Robert and Alec are as equally passionate about provenance, sustainability and ethical farming as we are. Our lamb is all home produced from our flock of ewes, who graze freely in the same pastures as our hens. All our meat is sourced and delivered as whole carcass giving us the flexibility to provide you with not only the best cuts but bespoke cuts that are not always available at other butchers. We can also source other products including game depending on season so don't hesitate to ask in the shop or pre-order from home before you visit. At Christmas we stock local turkeys so look out for our turkey and vegetable ordering forms to take the stress out of Christmas.
At Betty's, we offer a wide range of educational options and activities including our own pre-school group called Betty's Buddies. We welcome nurseries, schools and groups to visit us or we can come to you. Our school programme are all designed around the National Curriculum. Groups are welcome to join us whether it be in the day or in the evening for activities ranging from a farm walk to sausage making. We have our own Education Co-Ordinator who holds an enhanced DBS check and First Aid certificate.
On the farm, we host a wide variety of events all through the year, from hosting a Walking Festival to celebrating World Egg Day, and everything in between! We even have a dedicated events co-ordinator onsite who can help arrange your own bespoke event.
