Deli Delicious


Friendly service and local produce are being guaranteed by a new farm shop and delicatessen in Hethersett. 

The newly refurbished shop and deli at Church Farm on the main B1172 has been completely  re-stocked and was opened just before Christmas. 

The shop is being run by husband and wife team Linda and Chris Willgress from Mulbarton (pictured above) who got together with local farmer Philip Day to turn their dream into reality. 

Vegetables and fruit have been sold on the site for many years, but from an old open barn. Now the barn has been turned into a bright, modern shop catering not only for fresh produce from the farm but also meats, milk, bread and cakes, jam and preserves and even frozen deli food, all sourced from local providers. 

The shop is open Monday to Saturdays from 9 a.m until 5 p.m and run by Linda whilst hubby Chris goes off to work elsewhere. Linda and Chris are looking to provide a friendly and welcoming service. Linda has a number of years experience in the retail trade, having been a team leader for Lakeland. 

“I love meeting people and providing local produce. The response we have had since we opened has been brilliant, “ Linda said. 

In addition one of the couple’s sons – Jake – works on the farm so it’s quite a family enterprise. 

“We have known Philip Day for many years and it seemed the right time for us to open up. We will be looking to establish ourselves over the coming year,” Chris added. 

A steady trickle of people throughout the day is already suggesting the enterprise will be a success. 

“It’s so good to be able to get locally grown produce within walking distance of where I live,” said one member of the public.
