About Vegetable Matters

Vegetable Matters is our farm shop and café, based in the Cotswold village of Ebrington, Gloucestershire. The shop sells fresh, seasonal and locally produced vegetables grown on the Drinkwater’s and our local associates farms. In addition to fresh vegetables, we sell local seasonal fruit, fresh flowers, locally produced milk, artisan bread, butter and provide vegetable box deliveries.

Our café serves locally made cakes and offers light lunches, barista coffee and teas. With free wifi, indoor and outdoor tables and views over the Cotswold fields, the café is the perfect place for walkers, cyclists and horse-riders to take a break.

We believe that by providing premium fresh, locally grown produce, priced competitively, we offer the best of both worlds for customers; quality and price.

We aim to support other local food producers and businesses and become the destination farm shop for the local villages, supplying fresh vegetables and produce with limited food miles and minimal packaging. Later in the year, we will offer educational tractor tours of Ebrington village and the Drinkwater’s farm, and there are plans to involve local schools with educational projects.

Situated on the edge of the village, with free parking, our farm shop and café is easily accessible for all.

Peter Drinkwater

I am responsible for supplying fresh seasonal vegetables and fruit to the farm shop and maintaining quality control with all our local suppliers. I have lived in Ebrington all my life and have 30 years experience of the vegetable wholesale and retail business. This is combined with a collective experience from a long established family business growing seasonal vegetables and soft fruit. As well as my passion for vegetables my lifelong love for grey Ferguson tractors will find expression in the tractor tours and rides.
