About the employer

Sue and David have been welcoming customers to Churncote Farm Shop & Butchery since 2003, offering the highest quality meat and groceries, sourced from their own farm and other local producers.
The Churncote Farm Shop, a beautifully converted former cowshed, is only five minutes from Shrewsbury town centre.
Here, in relaxed and friendly surroundings, customers are guaranteed fantastic-tasting food thanks to Churncote's continuing focus on freshness, seasonality, and local sourcing.
​That commitment extends next door to the Cote Kitchen with a menu that showcases Churncote's own produce as well as fresh, quality ingredients from other local suppliers.
