Jon Thorner’s Farm Shop
We’re delighted to announce this month’s Stockist of the Month as Jon Thorner. Born and bred in Somerset Mr Jon Thorner opened one of the regions very first farm shops in 1979, as an extension of the family farm and abattoir. The core of the business was built upon using locally sourced and high welfare meat with a strong focus on fair pricing for suppliers.
In 2005 the first Jon Thorner’s pie was baked! The range has grown significantly now offering a range of pies, quiches, savouries, ready meals, desserts and cakes – and did you know each pie is still hand crimped and individually filled.
Their Kitchen Range now boasts multiple awards Great Taste, British Pie Awards, Taste of the West and Smithfield Awards, and their staff and the business have also been recognised regionally and within the industry at Somerset Business and Mendip Business Awards.
Field fare is an important brand to the farm shop with its broad range of freshly frozen products that complement their fresh range. The branded freezers create a great presence and attract customers into store.
“Field fare is an excellent product which draws many customers into the shop which in turn increases sales” Jane Keen, Retail Buyer, Jon Thorner
