Haye Farm Cider

"Cider has been made here on the farm since the 13th Century using only apples from the farm and neighbouring orchards. They have over 40 different types of apple, some of which are particular to Haye Farm itself. Their cider is of high quality and very traditional, still pressed through straw, using wild yeasts and wooden barrels." ('Ciderland' 2008)

Tasty Peanut Butter With Nothing Nasty Added!

When we decided to make our peanut butter it was important to make sure that all of the ingredients were the best we could source. Just as important was not to put anything nasty in.

So our peanut butter has no palm oil, no sugars, corn syrups, hydrogenated oils and others we can’t pronounce.

All of out individual Peanut Butters are available in both Smooth and Crunchy, to choose, simply write 'Smooth' or 'Crunchy' in the delivery note!

Faye's Farm

We specialise in producing the finest quality native and rare breed meat from rare pedigree animals. Visitors are always welcome to see the very high standards of welfare to which we keep our animals and how they are reared, fed and cared for. All of our animals are reared in a traditional manner in small friendly groups with lots of human contact and stimulation. We believe the meat tastes so much better when the animal has had a happy life.
