Rossie Home Farm

The Farm

Rossie Home Farm’s fields with spring blossom, autumn berries and happy wildlife offer peace filled green surroundings for the old walled garden and café. The red squirrel population is supported by new tree plantings connecting established woodland, underplanted by daffodils flowering in spring.

Home grown vegetables, fruit and berries can be found in the Café menu in season and can also be purchased as a memento of your visit in our take home range from the Backhouse Pantry which offers jams, jellies, chutney, balsamic vinegar and  top quality apple juice.

The Backhouse Café

The family run café uses our own home grown vegetables, herbs, soft fruit and berries as well as apples, pears, meddler and quince  as well as locally sourced ingredients to make apple juice, preserves, bakes and our seasonally changing signature dishes.

With great tasting barista coffee a tempting range of teas and seating inside or out. Inside the café the tables are made from a fallen beech from the estate which was dated to the 1860’s. Or sit outside on the patio area with views to the woodland, a very pleasant place to be and enjoy a coffee, lunch, or tea on a sunny day.
