a bit about us

We are a family run farmshop and cafe that specialises in free range poultry. Our chickens and turkeys are reared, slaughtered and processed here on the farm in small batches. This ensures the best welfare for the bird as well as zero food miles. We sell our delicious free range eggs in our shop alongside Seasonal produce grown locally. We work closely with many local businesses including Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses, The Bakehouse, Preserves of Suffolk and Capel Country Pies.
where we began
Some of you may remember when Hog & Hen first opened it's doors as a farmshop in March 2018, but can you remember when all we were was an egg shed by the side of the road?
We've come a long way since them days!
in 2016 'Salisbury's Turkey's' came to the farm, rearing free range chickens and turkeys, taking orders throughout the year with collections from the barn at christmas.
2017 was the year we took the plunge and began to renovate a farm workshop into what we all know now to be the farmshop!
The grand opening of the farmshop came on the 23rd March 2018, with each year seeing growth and expansion. We were soon to be faced with an unexpected challenge of the global pandemic, with the first lockdown falling exactly 2 years to the day since our opening. Although this forced us to postpone our cafe opening, the shop was incredibly busy with queue's stretching out onto the road every single day, home delivieries to the local villages every afternoon and daily deliveries to the shop to stock up on fresh fruit and veg, toilet rolls and 25kg bags of flour! The support we recieved whilst being able to support the community ourselves was really special.
fast forward to now, where our cafe has become incredibly popular, a menu that's forever growing, a beautiful cafe garden perfect for relaxing, and a nature trail built by our own fair hands for hours of fun for the children. come and have a look for yourselves!
