Cheese & Pickle Deli

New Store Opens 2nd April 2022

Plans are well underway for the opening of our new Deli and Homewares Store, Cheese & Pickle, at Pennbury Farm in Great Glen.

Kate, who lives in Kibworth, opened Paper House at Pennbury Farm back in August 2020, between the two national lockdowns.

Since then, the little shop has become a firm favourite with lovers of beautiful cards, puzzles and stationery.

So, when the larger former farm shop space became available last month, it was too good an opportunity to miss. Kate will now be combining her two favourite things, stationery and food, in one new, larger store, Cheese & Pickle which is:

Opening on Saturday 2 April.

Cheese & Pickle will be a Deli, initially focusing on cheese and all its accompaniments, with locally sourced produce such as:

  • eggs
  • bread and milk
  • sweet treats
  • coffee and teas
  • unusual soft drinks
  • dog treats
  • seasonal goodies
  • beautiful and practical homewares and, of course
  • all the Paper House favourites for all ages.

We also plan to include fresh flowers, herbs and much more as we grow and find out more about what our customers might like!

If you’re a local producer/grower/maker, please do get in touch as we’re always keen to source locally and support other small businesses –

Opening Hours

From 2 April, our Opening Hours will be:

  • Tuesday-Sunday 9am-3.30pm.

Closed Mondays except Bank Holidays. Paper House remains open in its current space until 31 March.

The Opening of the new Cheese & Pickle store is featured in the Leicestershire Mercury, 1st March 2022.

Pennbury Farm

If you haven’t discovered us yet, Pennbury Farm is on Stretton Road, just outside Great Glen. The Farm is also home to the wonderful Café, the Independent Boutique Lot Liv, and most recently St Martin’s Coffee Roasters.

There is free parking. All areas are pushchair/wheelchair accessible and the goats and pigs always like visitors! Dogs are very welcome outside on site.
