Location
The Butcher, Baker Farm Shop is located in Barton Under Needwood.

Barton Under Needwood is a large village in East Staffordshire, situated a mile from the A38 and located between Burton upon Trent and Lichfield. It had a population of 4,225 at the 2011 census.

The business is based at Barton Marina. Barton Marina opened in 2001 after 1.3 million tonnes of sand and gravel were excavated to create the marina and two fishing lakes. Woodland was planted and pathways constructed and one of Staffordshire’s best loved leisure facilities was born. The marina is home to over 300 narrow boats linked to the Trent and Mersey Canal.

The Waterfront Pub, a popular local with a reputation for good food and a large selection of beverages came into being in 2007. Other eating places, quality shops and a cinema quickly followed, all built in the same Victorian warehouse style using reclaimed timber and brick.

The Butcher, Baker Farm Ship is perfectly positioned within the shopping area and sits alongside other complimentary retail businesses and thus benefits from high levels of footfall and passing trade along with regular custom.
