The Oakes Family has farmed the land on Balsall Street for over 90 years and now a long-held dream to open a new café and farm shop stocked with quality local produce has been realised.
Gary Oakes says : ‘Being a farmer, my aim is to support local rural businesses by giving them an opportunity to promote their produce. The lamb we sell is reared on our land, the honey produced in our hives, cheese is provided by Fowlers of Earlswood, and our bread is delivered daily from Lewis’s bakery, which is also part of our family’s business. Even our coffee machines have been sourced from a local Balsall Common company.’
With over 8,000 free range chickens the Oakes farm is a major supplier of free range eggs. Customers can also purchases Adlington meats, vegetables, preserves, chutneys and home-made cakes.
Opening times: Tuesday – Saturday 9am – 5pm and Sunday 10am – 3pm http://www.oakesfarmshop.co.uk
