Bettys Farm is situated between the main centre of Willington and the A38. The access road is a little on the bumpy side, but takes you past the free-range chickens pecking away in harmony with the sheep they have at the farm. The wind turbine and solar panels that presumably power the farm, can be seen from the A38. The Farm Shop is stacked with a whole range of products from flour, jams and preserves to cakes, bread and rolls, all locally sourced. There is also sizeable range of fruit and vegetables, and dairy products like milk and cheese, the local Derbyshire cheese - Peakland White, that tastes similar to Stilton is lovely. Bettys Farm also has a tiny cafe area and its own butchers counter, thus far though we have not tried either, as we always go after work, just as it is about to close. We have tried their chicken and pork sausages though, which again are sourced locally, full of flavour, worth paying that little bit extra. In comparison to most farm shops though Bettys is very reasonable, with the eggs being particularly good value. A dozen eggs being a fraction of the price of those in the supermarkets and much tastier, because of the life the chickens have led.
