Who we are
We are a small, family run kitchen, farm shop and vineyard on the outskirts of Honiton in East Devon.
Founded in 2018 by Peter and Christine Helliwell, Heron Farm has evolved into the perfect place for you, your friends and family to visit.
With local coffee and cake, slap up lunches, play areas for the kids and our own Heron Farm Sparkling Wine always chilled, we have everything you need for a great day out.

Here at Heron Farm, our grapes of Seyval Blanc, Solaris, and Pinot Noir are all used to produce our award-winning sparkling wine, a still rosé wine, and still white wine.
We use the apples from our 40 tree orchard to make our delicious and ever popular apple juice, as well as our crowd-pleasing cider. The trees planted are mostly local Devon varieties such as Veitch’s Perfection, Hoary Morning and Fair Maid of Devon, among others.
Heron Farm is excited to launch our very own gin, Ma La, distilled with the Szechuan peppercorns that we grow on site. The name ‘Ma La’ comes from the two Chinese characters which describe the peppercorns’ distinctive flavour – ‘numbing’ and ‘spicy’. 100% British wheat grain spirit, the gin is distilled in small batches in a traditional copper pot still.
Beyond the vines, we also grow an extensive array of seasonal produce that stocks our Vineyard Kitchen and Farm Shop throughout the year. We also have a multitude of rather unusual products, some of which you won’t find growing anyway else in the UK!Vineyard Kitchen Farmshop - Buy online
