Croots Farm Shop & Cafe


Enjoy rolling views of the Derbyshire countryside from our Award Winning family run farm shop in Duffield. We are proud to offer a range of the finest home produced foods, with an inhouse butchery and bakery as well as our very popular cafe and shop. We believe in low food miles many of our ingredients and shop products are locally sourced where possible, so where better to enjoy an afternoon of shopping and lunch?

Our butchery team are always on hand to give help and advice and can cut meat to your exact requirement. We also make our own Award Winning sausages that are available in a selection of flavours, as well as burgers, stir fries and much more. On our deli you can find over 60 cheeses, many of which are local as well as cooked meats, homemade pies, pasties, sausage rolls, samosas, quiches, Scotch eggs to name just a few.

We serve breakfast with a view daily, as well as lunches and afternoon teas.  Our free play area is a great place to bring the little ones where they can enjoy the sandpit, climbing frame, slides, rideons and more, including watching the sheep and horses grazing nearby. We are COVID-19 secure and approved Good To Go by VisitEngland.
