A Warm Welcome Awaits You At Our Farm Shop
Cobb & Son have been farming at Washingborough since the mid 1930’s and the third and fourth generation are running the business today. In 1994 before the word diversification became popular we opened our Farm Shop, this was mainly to supply the passing public with our potatoes and some lines of bought in fruit and vegetables. As time has passed we now grow a wide range of produce to sell, this includes asparagus, beetroot, beans broad dwarf and runner, broccoli, Brussels, butternut squash, cabbage, calabrese, carrots, celeriac, courgettes, garden peas, gooseberries, leeks, lettuce, marrows, onions, pumpkins, raspberries, rhubarb, tomatoes and we take pride in our freshness and quality that is only seen in our farm shop but because we have a limited amount, that we can supply, we have to source from outside, we always use local produce where possible. Where that is not possible, bananas and oranges for example, we source the best quality available from the whole sale markets.
We supply one of the very best varieties of potatoes MARFONA this variety produces round and bold potatoes with a slightly yellow flesh and is excellent for jackets, roasts, mash, boiled and chips, in fact two local restaurants public houses prefer our MARFONA to any other variety, try them, you won’t buy a different variety again.
Jean runs the shop supported by Stephen & Paul.
