2021 OUR FARM SHOP REMAINS CLOSED
We have decided for the safety of our staff and customers to keep our Farm shop at Portwood Farm closed for the 2021 season. We are hopeful that in 2022 we will be able to open normally (obviously Covid rules and situation allowing).
Again, we will be selling our asparagus to local suppliers so you will still be able to enjoy the Portwood flavour. Please see ‘Our Shop’ section of our website for a list of local suppliers. Please note there may be other outlets which we are not aware of.
Unfortunately we are unable to offer any sort of collection or delivery service for our usual shop customers from our farm.
2020 SHOP OPENING CANCELLED
It is with a heavy heart that we have decided that we will not be opening our Portwood Farm Shop this year. Given the current situation we must do all we can to protect our customers and of course our staff so that we can progress with the season and provide healthy, local produce for as many people as we can.
But don’t worry – we will be endeavoring to supply local businesses (once we are harvesting asparagus) so that you can still enjoy the Portwood flavour.
Outlets will be announced shortly.
Local Flavours 2019
We are proud to have attended Local Flavours 2019 at Norwich Showground.
Please note – our farm shop will close at 5pm Friday 21st June.
We are proud to have supplied both the BAFTAs and Queen’s Tennis in 2019.
