The Hawarden Estate Farm Shop is the ideal destination for foodies. The perfectionists who work on the estate seem to never stop striving to improve their products, which vary wildly in size, shape, and flavour, but they all have a couple of things in common – they are all natural, and they all use only local ingredients and produce.
Come here if you want to give your taste buds a treat. There is a café, which offers up all sorts of hearty grub, everything from full breakfasts to afternoon tea and cakes. All the items here are either freshly made or cooked to order, so you know you’re in for a lovely, homemade meal.
The butcher is the place to go if you are looking for some unusual meats; they count rare breed pork and local game among their specialities. Make sure to take home some of their sausages – there are dozens of different varieties.
The real magic is in the food hall and the deli. Try their famous “monster” sausage rolls if you’re really hungry, take home a bottle of artisan olive oil, and make sure to grab a few jars of chutney and relish to enjoy later.
Hawarden Estate Farm Shop is found close to the village of Hawarden and the Golf Course and the industrial park. You'll easily spot it as you follow the Chester Road on the B5125.
