About us.

Plumgarths is an independent and family-run farm shop with a history that stretches back over a century to when Victoria’s great-grandfather delivered milk into Kendal by horse and cart.

Owned by Victoria Hodgson, and under the management of Victoria, daughter Anna, and their dedicated team since 2017, it is situated just off the A591 to the north of Kendal.

The farm shop focus is its traditional butchery counter showcasing locally sourced produce. Customers can enjoy specialities such as local and seasonal salt marsh lamb from Victoria’s parents’ nearby farm as well as beef, pork and lamb from other local farms.

The farm shop team is expert in both butchery and meat marinades so you can expect to find plenty of options beyond the usual cuts. Plumgarths also has an excellent reputation for its meat packs – meat for the week, BBQ and slimmers – which are ideal for helping you to plan ahead and fill your fridge and freezer in one go.

A lot is packed into the traditional stone-built shop. The shelves inside are brimming with the best foods and drinks from local and specialist suppliers. The eggs have an excellent provenance; they are supplied by the family farm at Low Foulshaw and have a reputation for delivering double-yolks. The farm shop also has a customer loyalty scheme and bulk catering options for larger functions.
