It is well known for it`s creative inhabitants from writers, photographers, painters and lets not forget our foody, The Gourmet Farmer. Fat Pig Farm is only a 4 minute drive from our farm.

On Cygnets main street you will find great little cafes, like the Red Velvet Lounge and Lotus Eaters that serve great local produce. Also well worth mentioning is Cygnets Woodfired Bakery where you can get many delicious treats. And of course Cygnet has two local pubs where you can get a nice informal family meal.

Every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month the colourful Cygnet farmers market takes place, where you can meet our local farmers and artists and feel part of this special community.
