We’ve been going to Swiss Farm for a few years now and watching it develop. With we understand expansion in nearby Colchester, it will be interesting to see if standards of service are maintained. About a year ago ( maybe two) they extended to a...More

Really good butchers... reasonable prices and quality generally okay, although I have recently stopped buying chicken breast halves here as they were often poor. Sausages and burgers good. Service fast and efficient. Now has a coffee van outside too.

We found this place by chance while staying locally. The choice of meats is brilliant. We got so much for our money and the quality is fantastic. Who can resist £3.99 for 20 delicious sausages? We couldn't. We also bought a huge pork joint with...More

I honestly don't know. All I know is living in the area for the last 40 years Swiss Farm has always been a family run business. They do have a mobile unit that they take to nearby towns.
