The lovely illustrated kitchen + giftware Circus Farm range for people who love to share simple food around a table with good friends.

Welcome to the Circus Farm range! Inspired by the lush, local Dorset countryside on a sunny day with farm animals leaping around in the fields behind Yvonne Lee's rural studio. An illustrator and artist for several years, Yvonne was on the look out for some placemats and coasters for her new kitchen in lovely contemporary country kitchen colours. Not finding any she designed her own and the Circus farm was born.

The designs for kitchen and giftware have been applied to premium cotton aprons + tea towels, placemats + coasters, and fine bone china mugs + jugs, prints and a few new additions for the greeting card range.

They feature the antics of Dorset’s clever farm animals; a cow, a sheep, a chicken, a donkey, a pig and a goose showing off their very special skills.

Everything is produced with care, the textiles are screenprinted on premium cotton, the placemats and coasters are stain resistant and hand finished and our mugs are fine bone china.

So whether it is for someone who is a whizz cooking in the kitchen or who loves their cuppa in an original fine bone china mug, our products suit everyone. I hope you enjoy a wander around our online shop, and thank you for visiting hope to see you again soon!
