The Black Barn Farm Shop is a collection of practical, beautiful and edible items that reflect what we use (tools), what we’ve grown (heritage fruit trees + berries + other edible  must haves) and what we’ve created (book + seeds).

Our life is seasonal, tasty and intentionally simple and our shop is about sharing  the fruits of our labour – so-to-speak- so you can take a little bit of the good life into your life.


Pear used for perry-making (pear cider) tend to be small in size and too astringent for eating. The majority of perry pear varieties hark from the English counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Specific perry pear cultivars are regularly used to make single variety perries: this was formerly the usual practice in traditional perry making, meaning that in the past each parish would have produced its own characteristic and distinctive perries.
