Changes at Bennetts Farm Shop

Posted on August 17, 2023

The past week has been full of planning, purchasing and a small change in direction. Nick and Sam from The Leighterton Dairy unfortunately weren’t able to carry on providing milk in the way they had been, due to rising costs, the cost of running their vending machines and their farm being so busy.

So we’ve made a change…

We’ve found a way to carry on supplying their delicious freshly pasteurised whole milk! We now have a table top vending machine for milk. You’ll also find bottles and syrups in this area. To make this even slightly viable, we have had to increase costs a little, so we thank you in advance for your patience with this. The cost hasn’t gone up once since we opened in March 2022, despite our running costs going up 400%.

You can pay for milk, syrups and bottles on the tablet. You can still pay for the items in the tall fridge and freezer on the tablet.

Plus, thanks to a change around and a little more space, we now have an indoor seating area! Although looking at the weather today, they won’t be needed for a while!!

Thanks for your patience, and if you have any questions, just drop us a message!
