Arthur’s Farm Kitchen

A special note:
We have taken the difficult decision to close Arthur’s Farm Kitchen from 24th December and despite previously advertised, we will remain closed for the month of January. The farm shop and farm trails will remain open, but for now, we feel the risks to open Arthur’s Farm Kitchen are too great.

The new strain of Coronavirus is spreading fast and whilst Shropshire has relatively low case numbers, we want to safeguard the vulnerable members we support within our community.

Continuing these services is paramount to us. Onsite, we support adults with learning disabilities, vulnerable young people and local clients of the foodbank. These services remain our priority at this time. We do hope you can understand our decision.

In the meantime we will continue with our takeaway Sunday lunches, which need to be ordered by 5pm Friday each week. These will resume week beginning 4th January and we will continue to offer free delivery to anyone needing to isolate within the TF9 postcode.

Sunday Lunches with Arthur’s At Home 

Orders need to be made by 5pm on Thursday for collections on Saturday. All meals are freshly prepared and packed ready for you to reheat at home, to ensure you can enjoy the best meal possible (all instructions supplied).

Supporting our community

Arthur’s Farm Kitchen is run by the Fordhall Community Land Initiative, a charitable society set up to benefit the community. All profits from the cafe are re-invested within our educational and community work.

Our values

We are passionate about organic farming, and great-tasting seasonal locally-sourced food. All our meat comes fresh from Fordhall Farm and our vegetables and salads are sourced from an organic local producer. Learn about how we put our ethics into practice by checking out Our Values.


During your visit to Arthur’s Farm Kitchen, make sure you have a look around the farm too. Take a walk along our Farm Trails, visit our free-range pigs, wonder around our community garden and let little ones loose in our play area.


We have a disabled toilet and disabled parking. The Farm Shop and Arthur’s Farm Kitchen are accessible for wheelchairs and scooters. After passing over a short gravel area, our community garden and free range pigs are accessible for most sturdy wheelchairs and scooters during dry weather.


You are welcome to bring your four-legged friend to the cafe and on the Farm Trails providing they are kept on a lead. Dogs (except assistance dogs) are not allowed in the Farm Shop.

Community focus

We are proud to support various community initiatives such as The Chatty Café Scheme and hold Dementia friendly status. We have a ‘Chatter and Natter’ table, where people can sit if they’re happy to talk to other customers. The Chatty Café scheme was started to help bring people together and start up conversations.
