Young's Farm Shop
Young's Farm Shop is the main training area for students at Derwen studying Retail. Students are involved in all aspects of running the Farm Shop from serving customers on the till, to stacking shelves and running the newsagent.
Young's Farm Shop is a fitting memorial to the late Barbara Young of Horton House Farm, near Wem, whose generous legacy has contributed towards this retail development.
The Farm Shop specialises in sourcing locally produced products from Oswestry and the surrounding area including Shropshire and Wrexham. Here you can purchase fresh fruit and vegetables (organic where available from our own market garden) along with a variety of quality dairy, bakery, butchery and other grocery products, all under one roof. A significant percentage of the stock has even been sourced from within a 20 mile radius of the college. This will be shown on the specially designed labels that appear on each product showing the food miles travelled to arrive at Derwen College.
Look out for the Green labels showing products grown or produced by students on the College grounds.
Despite this careful selection process we are able to offer competitive prices for all the goods. Visitors to the farm shop cannot be anything but impressed with the store design and layout, which gives that unique setting for displaying the quality products available.
If you enjoy visiting farmers' markets or the numerous food fairs that are now so popular you will enjoy and appreciate a visit to Young's Farm Shop.
