Local Food Britain member Hill House Farm, which is based just outside of Dorking in Surrey, is set to open its first butcher’s shop at Chessington Garden Centre, as part of the centre’s farm shop expansion which is due to open mid-March.
Hill House Farm’s inaugural butchers’ shop will feature its free range, farm reared produce with great provenance, including its renowned Gloucester Old Spot pork, its grass-fed Southdown lamb and Belted Galloway and Dexter beef.
“This is an incredibly exciting addition to our ‘farm to fork’ business,” says Ian Jones of Hill House Farm. “We have grown our online offering considerably over the last year, building a loyal following of customers who love our farm reared pork, lamb and beef.
“Opening our shop is the next step in our expansion programme and we are really looking forward to working with the team at Chessington to introduce our great tasting products with fantastic provenance.”
As part of this expansion, Hill House Farm will be developing its ‘farm to fork’ offering and they are looking to collaborate with other like-minded farms and producers across the Surrey Hills, who share their ethos and passion for sustainable farming.
To support this new venture, and the continued development of its online and wholesale business, Hill House Farm are recruiting for at least four new roles, including a butchery manager to run this new retail unit. They are already actively recruiting for these roles in time for the planned opening in March.
