Lathcoats Farm Shop


Our aim is to provide our farm shop and PYO customers with our own delicious fruit together with the best food from other producers around our region.

Our region has some fantastic producers - our typical supplier is a small family business with a real passion for what they do. We currently have around 30 shop suppliers.

In our fields we have reduced the need for sprays to a minimum. Our strawberries are grown on a tabletop system and with plenty of air circulating around the plants the use of fungicides is greatly reduced. With the fruit no longer resting on soggy straw the problem of slugs disappears.

In our orchards we use pheromone traps and disrupters to control caterpillar pests. Our orchard edges, hedgerows and grasslands are managed to attract beneficial insects which help in the control of pests.

We are proud to be members of the Essex Wildlife Trust.
