Jon Thorner's began with one simple idea: to offer good food, locally sourced. Starting in 1976, Jon Thorner's was one of the region's very first farm shops and specialised in providing locally reared meat. In this time the business has grown from a single farm shop, to a franchise of butchery counters, a large range of hand made foods, supplying local produce wholesale and running a cafe. But one thing which has remained consistent throughout the years is the quality of our products and where we source them from. We have always focused on supporting local suppliers; Jon has developed an excellent reputation and is respected for his attitude towards local sourcing. We champion the best Somerset has to offer, all under one roof.

Rumwell Farm Shop is an independent, family-run, award-winning business owned by the Mitchell family. It is situated on the A38 between Wellington and Taunton. It was originally a potato store, where David and Anne Mitchell began selling their potatoes and free range eggs at the gate.
Due to customer demand, the range of products soon increased and the farm shop grew into the place it is today. David and Anne’s sons, James and Jack, are now also involved in the business, as well as daughters-in-law Sophie and Donna.
The shop has a traditional butchery counter selling free range pork and Aberdeen Angus beef reared just four miles away on the family farm. There is also a delicatessen, bakery, jam kitchen, food hall, wine cellar and gift room.
The jam kitchen produces a range of 50 products including jams, chutneys and marmalades all made using fruit and vegetables from the shop.
Home grown potatoes are also still available, when in season, as well as everything from fruit, vegetables and groceries to plants, flowers, gifts and cards.
Come and see for yourself – we look forward to serving you!

Teals is a new destination on the A303 - a fantastic place to eat, shop and discover local food and drink in Somerset. The food market is part deli, part health store, part snackstop and offers as much local as possible - you’ll find everything here from cupboard staples (where you can refill your own containers with inexpensive oats, mueslis, car snacks, nuts and rices) to an array of jams and local honeys, delicious granolas and Somerset cereals. There are oils, sauces and rubs; pasta, flour and eggs; juices and cordials and plenty of choice for vegans. You'll also find tasty and seasonal fresh produce, a deli counter offering local cheeses, pastries and salads, a butcher's counter and a bottle store.
The restaurant is light, airy and relaxed, with views out over the apple orchard and across the courtyard. Talented and creative cooks have free reign to work with the seasons, developing food that connects to the region and satisfies more than just your appetite. They work closely with the butchery and food market, making the most of what comes through their doors. There are takeaway options available too, with freshly made sandwiches, soups and salads from the deli counter, as well as a great selection of cakes and proper Barista made coffee.
