Farm shop hopes to be 'go-to hub for Manx food'

Close Leece Farm shop and cafe opens in St John's

A 'go-to hub for Manx food'.

That's the aim of a new farm shop opening in the west of the Island.

The Close Leece Farm is officially launching its new shop, cafe and garden on Patrick Road in St John's, from today.

The shop stocks a variety of local produce, all housed in a renovated stone barn.

All of the livestock is raised outdoors, and there's the chance to get up close and personal with some of the animals in the outside area.

Running the venture is Tracey Ridgway, who says it's a culmination of a lot of hard work.
