Project Description

Celebrating their 25th year as a nationally award-winning shopping destination with a working farm still at its heart, Darts Farm bring you a series of workshops, talks and tastings from a whole host of local, artisan food and drink producers.

You’ll find the Darts Farm Tipis at their usual spot at this year’s festival.

There will be some special guests in the AGA Cookery Theatre with Saturday Kitchen wine expert Susy Atkins leading a tasting of local wines; celebrity chef Peter Gorton sharing tips for show stopping dishes; ‘Queen of Cheese’ Mary Quicke MBE and Mark Sharman of Sharpham Dairy sharing their favourite cheese and chutney pairings with Otter Vale; learn about the art of distilling with Salcombe Gin and Sea Arch; plus plenty more opportunities to meet and greet the local producers behind the wonderful food from our region.

Catch the Darts Farm Master Butchers sessions where Philip and Alastair will be showing off their sausage-making skills (look out, too, for the butcher bros’ appearances with Michael Caines).

Little foodies are invited to join in and create their own pizza, and there’s also the chance to try out being a Mini Darts Farmer for the day.

Join us in the tipis lots for fabulous foodie activities:

  • Sausage making with Darts Farm Master Butchers’

  • Making pizzas in the wood fired oven

  • Become a mini Darts Farmer

  • Big Green Egg cookery demonstrations

  • Fun farm selfies

  • Decorate an animal mask

From humble beginnings as a farm shop hut over 40 years ago, this year marks 25 years since Picfresh evolved in to Darts Farm as many of you know it today.

Voted Best South West Farm Shop at Taste of the West Awards 2018, our farm shop is still at the centre of our success, with the emphasis on food that is locally grown, reared, baked or caught. We have an on-site master butcher, fishmonger, delicatessen, cider maker and restaurant. We also have a fantastic lifestyle shopping experience to offer with a compilation of carefully handpicked specialist retailers all under one roof.
