Seriously good food and drink
Running Wimborne Chilli Shop between 2016 and 2018 gave us the opportunity to meet and work with the most amazing British artisans. Inspired by their stories and our own desire to make a positive impact, we set out to create a new type of food and drink retailer.
Committed to supporting local, small batch producers and ethical brands, we're on a mission to help our suppliers make a real difference to our community and planet. Check out the range we've sourced of the most incredible food and drink including:
- Craft beers, craft ciders
- English wines and spirits
- Chilli sauces, BBQ and spicy products
- Beer snacks and chocolates
- Fine teas and coffees

Meet the Team
Nigel - Operations Manager
Nigel runs the show. From re-building and styling the inside of the shop himself, to making sure we are well stocked with the right local products, and ensuring that all orders goes out in time, we would definitely not run as smoothly were it not for him.
Emma - Media & Purchasing Co-ordinator
Emma is our media and photography extraordinaire, creating beautiful product and shop pictures as well as running our Farehouse Trading social media. She also makes sure our shop is always bursting with the best local produce around. In addition, she's the one who will be grinding your coffee beans and serving you, always with a smile on her face.
Hilary - Shop Assistant
Hilary is our newest team member, helping out with anything that's needed. She is also as creative as they get, re-vamping our boards outside the shop, packing beautiful gift hampers and even knitting some chillies to put around the shop.
Sally is the energy behind the scenes (and also James' mother!). She is usually in the shop on a Saturday helping serve customers and making the shop look the best it can be. And when she isin't, she is always coming up with great ideas.
Erika - Co-founder & CEO
Erika co-founded Farehouse Trading with James, with the vision of working with brands who do good. She obsesses around how to bring these amazing brands and products to the British and world-wide population.
James - Co-founder
James is the reason we exist. Launching his first hot sauce, Sidekick, back in 2015, he is the man behind the great ideas, including expanding from hot sauces to local craft products. A passionate foodie, he will eat and try just about anything.
