Walk through the doors of the Chatsworth Farm Shop lately and things may look a bit different, following a refurbishment designed to celebrate local suppliers, estate-reared food and locally farmed produce.

As you may know, our award-winning farm shop, established by Duchess Deborah in 1977 and serving the Derbyshire community ever since, sells a wide variety of products that are produced or prepared on the Chatsworth Estate, or sourced from suppliers within a 30-mile radius. With this in mind, the refurbishment has improved display areas for fresh produce and butchery (including a new dry aging fridge for Chatsworth Estate beef), and increased shelf space for local producers.

Led by Lady Burlington, and created with a focus on sustainability, the redesign honours the traditions of the area by repurposing existing farm shop fixtures and making use of functional and heritage items from Chatsworth House and estate farms.  

Of the redesign, Lady Burlington said: “Our focus for the farm shop has always been on supplying the best possible produce for our local community.  We want to ensure that our products celebrate the wealth of talented producers on our doorstep and maintain the high quality the farm shop has become known for. 

“Being able to showcase not just what we produce across the estate but also the breadth of quality products available from talented suppliers across Derbyshire, is one of the many reasons we have such loyal customers.”  

An extended selection of local cheeses has also just been launched, produced by Derbyshire-based Hartington Creamery which has connections to Chatsworth dating back to 1870.

Visiting the refurbished farm shop, Robert Gosling, Hartington Creamery part-owner, said: “It is 150 years since the 6th Duke of Devonshire built the first dairy in Hartington, and we are pleased that we are working together again creating innovative products which reflect our shared heritage and culture.”

We look forward to welcoming you through the doors next time you visit, and hope you enjoy the brand new look, as well as the familiar commitment to quality that has been our priority since day one.
