At Lathkill Dale Campsite we like to support local businesses and farm shops.
Welcome to our butchery and farm shop established in 2012, what an exciting time we have had. Nestled in the heart of the Peaks lies this little gem.
It is without doubt a foodies haven rearing Belted Galloway Cattle, and Limestone lamb for the artisan butchery. All the meats are skilfully prepared by lifelong Master Butcher Michael Shirt, he is assisted by his very capable newly qualified butcher James Bunting, who Michael says is a one off in the youth of today he has the passion and commitment needed for the meat industry.
Between them they can boast nearly 60 years of experience. Since James joined the team after finishing his GCSE’s in 2017 he has achieved his level 2 and level 3 qualifications in Retail Butchery with distinction.

Croots Farm Shop was opened in 2008 at Farnah House Farm, in Derbyshire – the home of Kay Croot’s parents since the 1960s.
The idea for a farm shop and café came from Kay’s late husband Steve after the success of his very own herbs and flavoured oil and herb business.
Today, the farm shop continues to be a family affair with the Croot family at the helm…operating with as much passion and inspiration as it has from the very start.
We have a huge selection of exciting and quality products to tantalise your taste buds. Whether you are creating a family feast, fancy a treat or want to try something different, you are sure to find what you are looking for at Britain’s best farm shop.
