Since the opening of Noel's Farm Shop at Sutton Green Garden Centre in 2012, owner Noel Dobson has continued to grow the business and has recently expanded his offering with a whole host of zero waste products.
Found in the countryside between Guildford and Woking, Noel has been researching zero waste products for the past few years, following demand from his loyal and environmentally aware customer base.
Customers can now choose from food, including dried fruit, nuts, pulses, grains, cereals, lentils, porridge oats, banana chips, popcorn, rice, pasta and seeds, which are available in gravity bins.
The produce is all delivered to the farm shop in paper bags and customers can then bring in their own jars or containers to fill with their chosen produce or use the paper bags provided.
"The whole food and drink industry is moving towards zero waste products and my customers are more inclined to use these kinds of products," says Noel.
At Noel's Farm Shop, they are always searching for the best producers and support as many local small artisan suppliers as possible.
Since the shop's launch in 2012, they have created a real community atmosphere which is often missing in many towns and villages today. They can boast to be a true farm shop, as they also harvest seasonal produce from the 16 acre farm right behind the shop.
As well as giving customers the freshest fruit and veg grown next to the shop, Noel's Farm Shop also work with a number of trusted producers, so expect to find grass-fed local free-range beef, local free-range pork, lamb and chicken; artisan bread from Surrey bakeries; fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables; and free range eggs, including duck eggs and turkey eggs.
The shop also offers an amazing choice of free range pies and quiches and other deli products, as well as gourmet foods and wholefoods.
