Shoppers’ views at the heart of great quality and customer service at Croots Farm Shop

Shoppers at Croots Farm Shop and Café in Derbyshire are helping to shape the business’s future and its commitment to quality and great customer service.

The shop and café, which first opened in June 2008, asked randomly-selected customers what they liked about Croots and where improvements could be made.

In the shop, the butchery counter emerged as a firm favourite with its commitment to locally sourced meat – scoring ten out of ten. While the café’s full English breakfasts and cakes were overwhelmingly singled out as a reason to visit.
