Kimbers Award-Winning Farm Shop is Moving to New Premises!

The new Kimber Farm Shop under development

Kimbers family-run dairy and mixed stock farm has been farming in Charlton Musgrove for 300 years! We’ll soon be moving our family-run award-winning Farm Shop to Linley Farm, Charlton Musgrove BA9 8HD, on the B3081 Wincanton to Bruton road, along from Wincanton Race Course and Otter Nurseries.

Our present shop and butchery has served us well over the last eight years, but the time has come to move to a more accessible location. We have found that during the busy months in the farming calendar the lanes around the farm are hectic with tractors and in the winter they can be icy; we know this can be daunting for some of our customers and even with sat nav some have found us hard to find!

Our daughter Naomi and her partner Darren moved back to the area two years ago and with the undeniable desire to farm they bought Linley, a small-holding with a selection of 1950’s livestock buildings. With Naomi’s interest in the family business it was soon apparent that Linley would make an ideal situation for our expanding business, overcoming the problems of accessibility to our customers. A larger shop and butchery also allows us to stock a greater array of products and investigate new avenues for the business.

Something that shall be a novelty will be commuting to work! We have yet to find a use for the space that we will become available at the farm when the shop moves on the 30th September. Any ideas?

Famous for our home bred and reared traditional breed meats, free range, grass fed, slaughtered locally, hung for flavour, and professionally butchered. Aberdeen Angus beef, Gloucester Old Spot cross pigs, welfare-friendly Rose Veal, slowly grown free range chicken, ducks, turkeys and geese. Our ethos is unchanged; we’ll still stock top quality local produce including dairy, vegetables and fresh fish. And of course our lovely natural unpasteurized milk.

The new shop at Linley will be open for business on the 30th September. Although ordinarily we will not be open on a Sunday, our grand opening with tasters and a chance to quiz our suppliers will be on Sunday 5th of October between 10.00am and 4.00pm.
