Organic Markets:

The Organic Farm Shop and Cafe is Abbey Home Farm's own primary market selling everything that we produce on the farm. We process all of our dairy and poultry on site so you can be assured that when you buy from the us at the farm shop, the only miles our vegetables, poultry and dairy have travelled are the miles in your car back to your kitchen. We use a local SA approved abbatoir to process our pigs, sheep, and beef cattle. In additional to selling through the shop, we also sell some of our meats and cereal to the national organic market:

- Beef and lamb through the Organic Livestock Co-Operative
- Cereals through Organic Arable (founder member)
