School’s out at new North Lincs farm shop
A new store and café has opened in the north Lincolnshire village of Messingham, combining artisan food with antiques.
The business has been created on the site of the former local primary school with a £300,000 investment from London jeweller Steve Kirby and his partner, Joanna Belton.
They have transformed the site into an antique centre, coffee shop, delicatessen, florist and butcher’s.
Open seven days a week, Messingham Farm Shop & Café’s emphasis is on locally-sourced Lincolnshire products, although its chilled counter include a selection of European cheeses.
It sells three different pâtés, Mr Huda’s range of restaurant-style curry condiments and sweet and savoury pies from Lime Tree Pantry Foods and Brockleby’s.
Salty Dog crisps, Teapigs, English Tea Shop teas, Union coffee, Apidae Honey, Atkins & Potts dressings and sauces and Gordon Rhodes gourmet sauce mixes are also on the product list.
