A long-running farm shop near Wantage will permanently close next month.

Dews Meadow Farm Shop in East Hanney has been run for 34 years by husband and wife Jane and Andy Bowler.

But the independent family-run business will shut its doors for a final time next Saturday (November 4).

The couple have made the decision because of health issues, as well as a lack of staff after two of their butchers left last month.

They did not feel they could meet demand over the busy Christmas period.

Mrs Bowler, 71, said it was with a “heavy heart” that she and husband, 74, were forced to say goodbye to their business.

While the farm shop will no longer be open, they will still be running their farm in Charney Bassett.
