Trevallick’s Farm Shop

It’s no secret I love a visit to a farm shop. No two are the same, so you always discover something new and each one is filled with fresh local produce. Good cake is guaranteed. What’s not to like!? A few weeks ago we were visiting family in Cornwall and they took us to a farm shop called Trevallick’s for breakfast. Located just outside of Liskeard on the edge of Bodmin Moor, the shop is surrounded by green hills and beautiful Cornish landscape.

The shelves were stuffed full of local goodies including biscuits, tea, crackers, cider, honey, jams and homewares from local crafters.

This glorious sight is my veggie breakfast. Toast with proper butter, tomatoes, baked beans, mushrooms, vegetarian sausages, tomatoes and scrambled eggs. Lovely!

There is something that makes Trevallicks a bit special. PIGS! Assuming you haven’t spent every last penny on things from the shop, you can buy a bag of pellet feed for 25p.

You load the pellets into the wooden truck and then crank the handle to move it to the end where the food gets tipped in.

When the food falls into the pen, the pigs come along and chomp their way through it. Some of the smaller ones were a bit slow to sniff it out; me pointing and saying “it’s over there!” with raised eyebrows didn’t help much. Pigs don’t speak English do they?
