The Paddock Farm Shop opened on 6th April 2016, stocking a fantastic range of local produce and organic wholefoods and has since become somewhat of a community hub within our village. We were the first in the area to be considered "Zero Waste" - focusing on minimal packaging, eco friendly ethics and little to no plastic packaging, aiming for as little waste as possible.
Located at 7-9 Ramsay Street, High Spen, Tyne and Wear, NE39 2EL, only 5 minutes from The Paddock itself, The Paddock Farm Shop offers you a great selection of eco friendly, organic, locally sourced produce from around the region, some of which is produced at our smallholding, while the rest is sourced from trusted local suppliers. Through our shop, we aim to support as many small scale, local businesses as possible, whether that be veg growers, bee keepers, jam and chutney makers to soap makers.
The Paddock Farm Shop is located in the village in which I grew up, in the very same building my granda used for his business Frances Ellen Roache and The Traditional Quilt Makers. Purchased in 1983, my granda ran a successful soft furnishings business from the building, creating bespoke curtains and bedspreads for many years until the building was split up into units and rented out. We occupy one of the units, and next door we have a lovely vintage tea rooms, VIP teas, where you can grab a home made cake and a lovely cuppa when you visit. Steeped in history, the building dates back over 100 years and was originally used to build Venture buses offering customers a real sense of history and a unique shopping experience! We now run an organic Farm Shop and Veg Box Delivery service from this very same building, focusing on healthy, wholefoods with minimal packaging and an eco friendly ethos alongside all of your daily, zero waste essentials.
As a small, family run business, excellent customer service is at the heart of everything we do. Our customer always comes first, we pride ourselves on making everyone who walks through our door feel really special, and we hope you will find our team friendly, knowledgeable and approachable.
We are now also joined in the building by Jill Fay Art, June Robinson Sports Massage Therapy, Cluttermouse and Style and Sew bespoke Curtain Design as well as our very own Studio space exhibiting local artists, woodwork and crafts alongside our Plastic Free Pantry.
