Redhill Farm opens Lincoln shop

Redhill Farm Free Range Pork are celebrating 25 years of farming by opening a new shop on Bailgate in Lincoln.

‘Redhill Farm Shop in the Bail’ is a small version of Redhill Farm’s existing shop, which is located on the farm 20 miles north of Lincoln. The new shop, which is now open, is a perfect fit with the independent retailers trading in this iconic area of Lincoln.

Jane Tomlinson of Redhill Farm Free Range Pork said: “We’re delighted to be bringing Redhill Farm to Lincoln. We’re looking forward to working alongside like-minded retailers who really care about what they are selling and to being part of the Bailgate community. We’ve been blown away by the overwhelmingly positive response to our new venture from other Bailgate shop-keepers and our customers.”

Previously trading as a butcher’s shop, the premises has been completely renovated. It has new flooring, walls, cold storage, chiller cabinets and displays. Redhill Farm Shop in the Bail will offer free-range pork, lamb and hogget, grass-fed beef and freshly collected free-range eggs, all supplied daily from the farm. All other produce will be carefully selected from farmer producers whose products offer genuine provenance.

Jane added: “All our meat is free-range and ethically farmed to the highest standards. We hand-produce everything in our own butchery, bakery and smokehouse at the farm. We have cherry-picked other suppliers who share our commitment to provenance and authenticity so customers can be confident that if we are not the farmer, then we will know exactly who is.”

Customers of the new Farm Shop in the Bail will also find home-cured, matured and smoked pork products alongside the fresh free-range meats. Farmer Terry Tomlinson added: “we’re proud to have achieved national recognition for our pork but selling our produce in person at farmers’ markets remains very important to us and we will continue to attend all our markets. Farm shops complement farmers’ markets and we’re particularly excited that the Farm Shop in the Bail will offer tourists to Lincoln a taste of genuine Lincolnshire food culture. It will also allow us to support our increasing number of trade customers in Lincoln and the surrounding area.”

The shop will open from 8.30am until 5.30pm, Tuesday to Saturday, and will offer light take-away food alongside the butchery and deli. Customers can pick up delicious free-range bacon and sausage sandwiches for breakfast whilst lunch-time offerings include hot pulled pork and warm sausage rolls.
