The newest destination located on the A21

There has been a Farm Shop on the Planters site at Orchard Farm for over 20 years. And the reason is obvious…it’s a great location, right on the A21, with plenty of local producers all around us! Surrounded by open farmland, we can bring you items from some amazing vineyards, fruit and honey farms, wholesale nurseries and more.

Planters is much more than a Farm Shop…our garden centre is packed with a huge range of pots and plants, and with giftware, garden furniture, clothing and an antique’s barn, we believe we have something for everyone! Plus we have a fantastic Garden Café, serving the same great produce found in the Farm shop.

“With a superb site right on the A21 and loads of local producers right on our doorstep, we felt there was a great opportunity to create a really special local business which could provide amazing products and a great afternoon out for locals and visitors.”
Ed and Pamela Middleton, Owners
