The home of Somerset Farmhouse nestles between the beautiful Exmoor & the Quantocks hills and we have been serving the area for over 150 years. Two local families, the Warrens and the Paytons have managed the business since 1989. In 2018 the Warrens retired from the business and John Payton has now been joined by his daughter Sally who can be found behind the counter in the shop most days along with her brother Rob.


John Payton has 45 years’ experience supplying quality meat, poultry and game to the best hotels and restaurants in the South West. It is our aim to source livestock from traditional farms in and around the Exmoor National Park, where animal welfare and care for the land takes president over short term mass produced economic “factory production line” farming that has changed the industry over the last 25 years.


With Sally joining the business we have expanded our range of products to include local free range eggs, west  country cheeses and chutneys and fresh fish from the Devon and Cornwall coasts. With a move towards zero waste products we also supply fresh milk from Gundenham dairy in Wellington which you can collect in your own bottle and a range of dry ingredients including rice, pasta and dried fruit and nuts dispensed in the quantity you require.


With our unique knowledge of the best local farmers and producers, we decided to establish Somerset Farmhouse Online – so we could offer these wonderful products to a wider audience of people who know great food when they taste it. We are happy to take order over the telephone as well, and will deliver the next day in the local area. We have developed a range of hampers featuring many treats and an option to put together a hamper of your choice, for yourself or as a gift.
