Isle Of Wight Farm Shop LogoIslanders have welcomed the launch of the Isle of Wight Farm Shop on the site of the former Brownrigg’s Farm Shop on the outskirts of Godshill, which has this month been taken over by 2 local farmers.

As first reported by Island Echo, Brownrigg’s Farm Shop announced last month that it was closing and that the shop would re-open under new ownership in 2022.

Brownrigg’s was owned by Paul and Sue Brownrigg who, after 30 years of running butcheries, farmers markets and the farm shop, decided it was time to take a step back.

Now with a new name — Isle of Wight Farm Shop — Andrew Hodgson of Cheverton Farm in Shorwell and Philip Morris of Ash Hill Farm in Atherfield have taken over the roadside farm shop between Godshill and Rookley.

As well as farming livestock at Shorwell, Andrew runs The Isle of Wight Meat Co.. Philip grows vegetables at various local locations around the Island and runs the popular fruit and veg shop, Farmhouse Fayre in St James’ Street, Newport.

Customers are no doubt pleased to know that familiar team members will still be working at the shop under the new management. Shane will be serving at the meat counter 6 days a week with Patty in the kitchen cooking pies, sausage rolls and a new range of ready meals.

Abi, Hannah, Steve and Gill will be keeping the shop stocked with all the old favourites and plenty of exciting new products.

The sirloin I ordered for Christmas was well under the weight I ordered and very disappointing. Again I had no reply. Hopefully things will now improve with the takeover.
