Welcome to Ansty PYO & Farm Shop. We are a family run rural business set in the beautiful countryside on the Dorset/Wiltshire border, overlooked by the stunning Wiltshire Downlands.
A little bit about us!
Originally the Pick Your Own consisted of only four types of fruit: strawberries, raspberries, tayberries and blackcurrants. Over the years we have changed the farm significantly, we now grow a wide variety of fruit and vegetables for Pick Your Own or selecting freshly picked from the farm shop. Over the last 14 years we have greatly expanded and now have a busy Farm Shop, stocked full of home grown and locally produced goods. We have a thriving Farm Shop Kitchen, a lovely Tea Room where you can relax over a cup of tea and home made cake whilst taking in the beauty of the countryside around you! If that's not enough we also make a Maize Maze for the Summer Holidays and a hilarious Pumpkin Event for the Half Term Period in October. Not forgetting all the Ansty Farm Shop animals (or pets)!! We have 300 laying hens. Plus about 50 ducks, 30’ ish bantams and 9 pigs (with a fairly constant supply of piglets being born)!!
How we started?
We started out as dairy farmers and took the Pick Your Own over as a diversification in 1988. So farming has been in the blood for generations! We wanted to offer people the opportunity to eat fresh home grown and home made goods. A lot of folk have no time or no space to have a garden, so this gives them the chance to eat produce straight from the field! We are able to offer our customers a zero mile food policy on all our home grown produce, (unless you count the 20 to 100 walking paces from picking to shop)!!!
