Uncle Henry’s Farm Shop
Uncle Henry’s is a family-run farm shop, cafe and butchery named after Henry Wright, a friend of current owners Meryl and Steve Ward. Henry used to live in the house behind the farm shop and his family farmed the land there for more than 100 years.
In 1991, the Ward family took on the farming operation of Grayingham Grange Farm, and in 2006 the farm shop, cafe and butchery were born. The farm is mainly arable but Meryl also keeps Hampshire-breed pigs.
Caring for the environment is at the heart of the business – maintaining hedges, creating ponds and giving bees a home to aid pollination –beekeeper Bob Mould keeps his bees on the farm and the honey is sold in the shop. Even the pig manure is used to create methane to generate electricity!
Back in the shop, you can find delicious home-reared produce including prize-winning sausages and traditionally dry-cured bacon and ham. There’s also meat from trusted local suppliers. Cheese is in abundance – Lincolnshire Poacher and Cote Hill Blue (both produced by nearby dairies) are just some on offer. Fans of the sweet stuff will want to make a beeline for the delicious baked goods made on-site – the chocolate cake is legendary.
Fancy being cooked for? Head to the cafe – breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea are available seven days a week.
