Veg exchange scheme, chat & collect, independent takeaway… our newest Food Partner, Doddington Farm Shop, has been doing loads through lockdown to keep providing people with fresh local food, and keeping human interaction alive despite everything.
Local, seasonal produce
Opened in 2007, the Farm Shop at Doddington Hall was born out of a passion for good quality, seasonal, local food.
You’ll find fruit and vegetables with zero food miles freshly picked from the Kitchen Garden, beef in the Butchery often from the Estate herd of Lincoln Red cattle, Doddington honey and an abundance of produce from local suppliers, including Maud Foster flour and Hambletons meat.
Bike Shop Cafe, coffee shop and afternoon tea service resume outdoors from 12th April!
Vegetable Exchange Scheme
Allotment holders and home-growers will love their veg exchange scheme – they accept surplus home-grown veg in exchange for shop vouchers (by prior arrangement – details on their website).
Cycle path from Lincoln
We love that Doddington Farm Shop and Cafe are accessible from Lincoln by bike – along a car free cycle path – countryside cycling all the way!
Chat & Collect*
*This was a lockdown service that has now come to an end
Lockdown has seen the rise of Chat & Collect – a friendly subversion of Click n Collect!
Customers – primarily the non-techy generation! – phone up and have a conversation with an actual person(!) who can talk about what’s available without needing to go online, and take an order over the phone.
The team get the shopping ready and bring to out to your car for collection – the whole thing is contactless.
The number is: 01522 688581, the line is open daily 9.30am-3.30pm with collection slots available Monday-Friday.
We’re very happy to welcome Doddington Farm Shop as Food Partners – and applaud all that fresh, healthy food, with minimal food miles and short supply chains!
