Welcome to Canalside Farm, Shop and Café in Great Haywood, Staffordshire!

staffstourismawards_silver 2016

We are a family run Farm that has been growing its own plants and produce for over 30 years. Strawberries are our speciality plus raspberries, blackberries, garden vegetables and a beautiful range of bedding and pot plants.

In our Farm Shop and canalside Café we serve home grown produce and an extensive range of high quality food and drink from local suppliers within a 30 mile radius of our home.

Located on the side of the picturesque Trent and Mersey Canal in Great Haywood, we have mapped out for you some lovely Canalside walks and cycle rides which start on our Farm. You can also visit the historic Shugborough Estate or even hire a narrowboat and cruise the peaceful Staffordshire waterways within minutes of our gate.

We are open 7 days a week all year round, so why not drop in for your weekly shop, meet friends for lunch on our relaxing terrace, come along to one of our themed events, get inspired in the Seasonal Plant Centre or ‘Pick Your Own’ strawberries from late May to September.

If you want to enjoy the tastes and hospitality of Staffordshire we would love to see you!

Locally yours,
