Low Sizergh Barn is a great place to visit whilst you’re out and about: it has a fabulous shop, selling unusual gifts, cards, clothing and artwork and books.
The Award-Winning food shop downstairs is crammed with Cumbrian and artisan produce, and the cheese-counter is stacked full of mouthwatering cheeses, including local Kendal Creamy & Crumbly made with milk from the Low Sizergh Farm herd.
The fruit and veg is always fresh, and seasonal and local where it can be.
The meat counter has all kinds of local sausages, steaks and some fish.
Low Sizergh Farm produce milk from their own herd, and raw milk (untreated) The Raw Milk vending machine is right outside the farm, literally yards from the milking parlour: you can bring your own container or buy a special one as a souvenir.
The bread and cakes are delivered fresh from local bakers.
You can even pick up drinks; wine, whisky, vodka and gin; lovely treats from the deli counter; preserves; grocery – whatever you need for a full shop – picnic or dinner party, with lots of lovely local flavours.
The cafe serves home-made or local-made produce, and overlooks the milking shed where you can see the cows being milked daily at about 3.45pm – a very popular time for a cuppa and a cake!
There is outdoor seating in the courtyard area; and there’s a 2 mile farm trail you can have a wander around and see how this naturally farmed landscape works.
