Farm Shops - Design, Planning & Construction

Farm shops have been one of the success stories of the last ten years. Whilst most sell the typical fruit and vegetables often grown on the farm, horticultural nurseries and butcheries can all be classified as farm shops.

In planning terms however, they can be complicated. If produce is grown on the holding and sold unprocessed then the ‘shop’ could be an agricultural building with few restrictions. When more than an insignificant amount of imported produce is sold, planning permission will be required. Animals slaughtered off the holding and returned are considered imported.

Acorus have dealt with a range of farm shop proposals and conversions including proposals on green field sites, designing buildings, obtaining planning permission and overseeing construction.
