Opened in 2005, The Udder Farm Shop was the brainchild of Jane and Brian Down when they saw a lack of opportunity for buying local produce and few places for the local community to meet. Built from the ground up to their own specifications there is now a restaurant, deli, shop and butchery. All the beef or pork for sale in the farm shop or cooked in the restaurant is raised on Jane and Brian's own farm next door, or bought in from the local village. In fact, all the meats and products are sourced from the local area where feasible whether pork, biscuits, tea or paintings!

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.
