1970

We began selling home-reared pork from our garage. As customer demand grew, we (the Gornalls) began to offer meat and local produce from neighbouring farms, including lamb from the Thornton family, which we still stock today. Before too long we had to move into the barn for more space, making us one of the original farm shops to trade in Lancashire.
2003

The Eaves Lane farm shop was built in November 2003, when we outgrew the barn. Moving into a purpose-built farm shop meant we could extend our range and include: mouth-watering, locally-produced meats from the butchery;a selection of cooked meats, salami, fresh pies and pastries, and local and continental cheeses from the delicatessen; and a wonderful range of goodies to complement and enhance your meals.
2008

Honeywell’s Butchery and Delicatessen opened up within the Barton Grange Garden Centre and farm shop complex. We see this as a natural extension of our farm shop so you can rest assured that the emphasis on quality and value remains the same.
2014

Honeywell’s Butchery opened within Bents Garden and Home, Food Hall, in Glazebury. We have a fabulous team at Bents and you can expect the same extensive range of products, and the same high level of customer service. We were also thrilled to be awarded membership into the Butchers Q Guild in 2014.
