Well we are finally in and ready to see you all in our new shop.
The old shop looks tiny in comparison to the new footprint; it seems impossible that we ran a business in such a tiny cramped space. Short-term we are keeping the old shop in place, just until we work out how to move it around to a new concreate base at the back of the farm. This will be then used for storage and maybe some other activities in the future.
We would love you to come and give us your feedback and thoughts on how we can make the shop a success in 2017.
Over the next few days we will be moving all stock from the old Farm Shop to the new one. The shop will be open as usual but there might be a few distractions so please bear with us.
We plan to do most of the transfer of produce from 3pm on Sunday, with the aim to be open in the new shop 9am Monday. Entrance will be via the new car park and Tea Room area until the old shop building is moved to its new home.
David, the family and I area really looking forward to welcoming you to the new bigger, brighter Ellenden Farm Shop and hope to see you all in there soon to check out what we’ve done and take a look at the larger range of locally sourced meat, fruit, veg, pickles, beers, dairy and bakery.

Artisan Jams and Chutneys
We are two friends, Wendy and Hayley who live in the beautiful Vale of Evesham and enjoy all the local produce that this area has to offer. Over the years we have both developed a deep understanding and consideration of food, health and the environment and it is on the basis of this that Simply Seasonal has evolved.
Our aim is to provide Artisan products with great flavours reflecting the wonderful locally sourced produce used to create them. We are now in our 6th year of producing jams and chutneys in this way and we are immensely proud of our products and what we have achieved.
