Welbeck Farm Shop Star on Channel 5

Welbeck Farm Shop Star on Channel 5

Welbeck Farm Shop appear on a new Channel 5 two-part documentary celebrating seven of the finest farm shops in the country.

'Britain's Poshest Farm Shop' aired on Friday 12th August 2022, and viewers saw a selection of familiar Welbeck Farm Shop faces in this fly-on-the-wall production. Narrated by Patricia Hodge, the TV programme is a warm and touching look at why we all love a farm shop, the characters that inhabit it, and the people behind the scenes. 

Nicky Taylor, Creative Director of 'Britain's Poshest Farm Shop' went on to say; 

"Welbeck is probably the gem in the crown when it comes to Farm Shops; we didn't find any to compare; the largest walled garden in Britain, its own dairy and unique cheese, with its own School of Artisan Food. But it doesn't shout or brag about its skills or qualities - it truly is a best kept secret, at least it was to Manager Ollie, who as a local lad didn't know it existed until he started working there! In the film, we see Welbeck enter the prestigious Farm Shop and Deli Awards and reap the rewards it richly deserves".

Oliver Stubbins, General Manager at Welbeck Farm Shop, was a little uncertain about getting involved with the Out of the Blue Production but was a natural when it came to the filming. We caught up with how he felt about the experience;

'Whilst I'm not one for being in front of a camera myself, the opportunity to share some of the fabulous work the team here at the Farm Shop do on a daily basis was wonderful. There is an abundance of passion for food and great pride in providing relaxed and naturally friendly service, and to showcase this is a rare and exciting experience. 

The timing of the filming couldn't have been much better either. Finding out our Butchers had won the Central and Eastern 'Butchery of the Year' award was a great feeling. To have the team's efforts recognised by customers and industry experts is a testament to what they do.'
