Farmer Jacks Farm Shop originally opened in 2005, a partnership of two established Island farmers with the shared aim of providing quality and variety, reducing food miles, and promoting and supporting the wide range of local produce available from the many farmers and food producers of the Isle of Wight.

Between the two farming families the Brown's and Pierce's have an agricultural heritage that spans several generations. Amongst the range of produce they grow are some of the most sought after seasonal delicacies, all of which are readily available from Farmer Jacks Farm Shop when in season.

These seasonal delights include asparagus, cherries, apricots, strawberries, pumpkins, squash and of course sweetcorn which is celebrated every September at the annual Sweetcorn Fayre.

Thanks to the overwhelming support of friends, family and loyal customers as well as heightened interest and awareness of buying local food among the general public, June 2010 saw the long awaited arrival of the new purpose built Farmer Jacks Farm Shop.

The new shop with the addition of our in house butcher, delicatessen and the food hall has enabled Farmer Jacks to significantly increase choice and variety offering inspiration to many a discerning and curious shopper. It has also reinforced our ongoing campaign to support the local community by promoting fresh local seasonal produce and good honest food that is sourced with passion.

Take a look at our farm shop page to find out about all the delicious food we have to offer.

Farmer Jacks Butcher

Tom has worked on and off as a butcher for 23 years having trained at Cannington College in Somerset. He has been  working with Steve Doe for the last 2 years and is now enjoying serving the public again at Farmer Jacks. Tom came 6th in the 'Young Butcher of the year' competition in 1991 and assures us he would have come 2nd or 3rd had he not lost points for chopping off the top of his thumb! When he is not behind the butchers counter thinking up new sausages he loves getting out on the golf course followed by a drink on the 19th hole!

Q:What do you like best about working at Farmer Jacks?

A: I really enjoy interacting with customers again and thinking up new wierd and wonderful sausages.

Q: What product(s) in the shop would you most recommend?

A: I think our sausages are the best on the south coast and the steak is the best on the Island.

Q: What did you have for dinner last night?

A: Boiled cured ham, fresh peas, new potatoes (all Island) and a homemade mustard and dill sauce.
