The Spencer Family came to Spring Lane Farm in 1939. Herbert Spencer came from Wymeswold in Leicestershire and purchased Spring Lane Farm with his wife Edna. Their son, Cyril and his wife Dorothy developed the Business growing potatoes as well as milking cows and selling free range eggs at the farm gate.
When Cyril's son Mark and his wife Claire joined the business in the early 1990's, the decision was taken to cease dairy farming and to concentrate on farm retail. Spring Lane Farm Shop then expanded and opened a butchery counter, cheese and cooked meats counter and continued to sell free range eggs as well as fresh fruit and vegetables.
In 2006, an old barn was converted to create our own on-farm bakery selling daily fresh baked bread and rolls.
The Shop now employs over 20 local people including weekend staff.
