The Lulworth area is full of excellent local producers and it has been for years. This is an area that has always supported its own growers and farmers and stopping at one of these excellent suppliers will enhance any self-catering holiday.
Holme For Gardens Farm Shop, West Holme
Situated between Wareham and Wool on the Isle of Purbeck, Holme Farm is not just your average farm shop. In addition to having a spectacular range of Dorset home grown produce, there’s also a tea room, garden nursery and an enormous ‘Pick Your Own’ field open from June to October. Not many farm shops can claim to be a one stop shop but Holme Farm really does have everything that you’d need for a spectacular meal in your self catering holiday cottage: from local fresh meats and cheeses to Chococo’s hand made (in Swanage) chocolates.
Cove Fish, Lulworth Cove
Watch the fishing boats come in and then buy the freshest fish, crab, lobster and scallops possible from a small wooden hut by the sea, what could be better?
Lulworth Skipper Cider, Bere Regis
Award winning craft cider, still hand pressed on a traditional twin screw press. The cider is pressed from a blend of Dorset Cider apples fermented slowly over the winter months then matured in oak casks. It’s a far different product from commercial cider as it contains nothing but 100% cider apple juice! They also make very good cider vinegar and wonderful freshly pressed apple juice (in season). Callers by appointment are most welcome, for tastings and cider sales direct from the cider shed. Please phone Martin to avoid disappointment.
12 Green Acres and Black Pig Charcuterie, Lytchett Minster
In 2001, Twelve Green Acres was born, with the vision of farming rare breed pigs under a free range system with high levels of animal welfare. They offer pork, beef, wild venison, bacon, sausages and charcuterie.
Kate’s Farm Shop, Owermoigne
Situated on the main road between Wool and Dorchester this is a large farm shop with extensive choice of local and seasonal produce.
This highly nutritious plant is packed with vitamins and mineral. Watercress is certainly one of the original “superfoods”!
A chance visit by a chef to a watercress farm brought about the growing of Wasabi in Dorset. Commenting that “the only other crop he had seen growing in similar conditions was wasabi in Japan.” A new company was born! Wasabi is a fiery condiment that is used when eating sushi. It is hot a bit like chilli, but the heat does not linger.
