The countdown to Christmas has begun and here at Tancred Farm we are working hard to make sure that you have everything you need to make your celebrations a success. We can supply you with a tasty joint for your Christmas lunch, with a choice from farm reared geese, free range bronze turkeys and our very own Lincoln Red rib of beef – amongst others. Don’t forget to place your orders before 20th December. We also have plenty of Tancred pork sausages and streaky bacon for the essential pigs in blankets to accompany your roast.

The Tancred Farm shop is fully stocked with all of the fresh fruit and vegetables that you could hope to find at this time of year. British potatoes, root vegetables and sprouts for the main occasion, juicy satsumas and lemons for the fruit bowl. Living with a family of sprout haters? Why not use our hand cured bacon and parmesan from our cheese counter to make this roasted sprout gratin from the team at BBC Good Food magazine.

Once the main meal is over take the pressure off on Boxing Day and provide a spread for you and your guests to graze. Our handmade pork pies are available to pre-order and we sell a great range of locally made chutney, relish and pickles to complement the offering. Choose from our own cooked and sliced meats, sausage rolls and cheese selection to ensure that everyone can find something they love to eat.

The Farm Shop and coffee shop is open as normal trading up until Christmas Eve, but the family will be taking a well-earned break for Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Our opening hours for the season are as follows.
