Welcome to Cross Lanes Organic Farm


Cross Lanes Geese


Cross Lanes comprises of an organic café-restaurant with a farm retail shop supporting local producers and a developing horticultural centre. In the shop we have an in house butchers, delicatessen, bakery, general store and craft section. Cross Lanes is run and built entirely on eco principles with organic, local and green thinking at the heart of everything we do. We have a children's play area outside, we have 'sheep on the roof', geese wandering around and pigs in the fields! We are overseen by our carved stone 'Green Man' who heralds the spirit of Cross Lanes, looking down on us from the East Elevation wall.

The three Cross Lane's geese certainly keep us and our customers amused with their antics, we've got Mum, Dad and Son who patrol the site and are always on the look out for some bread!



The Cross Lanes Organic Farm project  has been part funded by the Rural Development Programme for England which is jointly funded by Defra and the European Union.
