Erlestoke House has been established for the welfare of prisoners at Erlestoke prison. The farm shop supplies a wide range of seasonal vegetables that have been grown in the prison to the highest standards. Alongside the delicious vegetables we have free range eggs and a wide range of high quality wooden products for home and garden. We also take on orders for bespoke special order items.
As a new service we are also able to offer a bicycle service facility as well as having a number of reconditioned bikes for sale.
