Honeywell Meats was established in 1970 by the Gornall family and has grown from strength to strength, but ever remaining the traditional family business that they have always been with over 10 family members still highly involved in all aspects of the business.The Honeywell’s you know today came from very humble beginnings, with Fran and Doris Gornall taking the first step and lauching into business, selling their hand reared pork from a stall in the garage! As they grew in popularity, Honeywell’s moved from the garage to the barn, where they set up Honeywell’s, one of the original Farm Shops. They branched out into selling their neighbours, The Thornton family’s Lamb, which they still stock today as well as Pork, Chicken, Sausages and home cured bacon and much more! This is where Honeywell`s remained for over 30 years.

The fruit and vegetable supplier, Ribble Farm Fare, is based in Longridge, Lancashire and the Walled Garden receives a daily delivery of fresh produce every day.
The majority of their products are sourced locally: potatoes, brasicas and all root vegetables are grown on farms covering the Lancashire and Cheshire areas. Milk and local cheeses are produced from cows grazing the fields and fells around the Longridge area. Eggs are supplied either Lion stamped or free range and are produced from locally farmed chickens. All yoghurts are manufactured from local farms surrounding our business. Like every fruit and vegetable business when the weather doesn’t permit us to buy locally we source produce a little further afield.
