Taverners Farm Shop
From the wide range of fine local food and drink in the Farm Shop, to delicious, home-cooked meals served in our Restaurant or the creamy delights of Orange Elephant ice cream made using milk from the South Devon cow, here at Taverners we have one simple aim: to deliver Great Farm Food.
Set amidst the beautifully refurbished barns, the stunning courtyard encloses the Farm Shop, Restaurant and famous Orange Elephant Ice Cream Parlour. Nestled in the lush Devon countryside, the farm can be explored in the Summer Meadow, a haven full of animals to meet and feed, gardens to explore and play for all the family.
A working farm today, the Taverner family have been farming here for five generations with dairy cows, sheep, beef cattle and our flock of free range hens. Rob and Helen Taverner began the Devonshire Milking Cow Project to bring back the South Devon cow, the so-called Orange Elephant, as a great milking breed. It's much creamier milk makes superb ice cream.
Our Farm Shop, set in a spacious, beautifully-refurbished barn, houses a huge variety of delicious local produce as well as the finest artisan food and drink.
Great Farm Food means all your essentials - fresh local vegetables, freshly-baked bread, locally produced honeys, pickles and jams, delicious local milk and cream, eggs produced by our own free range flocks - are all here for you.
We also have a huge range of the finest crafted local produce available. Sweet treats, spicy temptations, crunchy and flavoursome crisps, scrumptious cakes and biscuits, all carefully crafted by local hands, can be found. An impressive variety of fine juices, cordials and sparkling drinks as well as our latest addition: wines, beers, ales and ciders from the very best local vineyards and breweries.
