Our meet the producer events are a chance for you to meet some of the wonderful artisan businesses that supply the farm shop. We will post these events here and publicise them on Facebook, Instagram and twitter too. Make sure you follow us to get news updates.
Cupsmith Tea blenders & Coffee Roasters 10.30am-3.30pm Saturday 25th March 2017
We started to stock coffee and tea from Cupsmith just before Christmas. They create coffee and tea blends which are for everyday drinking. Roasted just down the road from us in Farnham we love the flavours of their blends which have just the right intensity for everyday appeal. We also sell their coffee beans from the deli counter which you can have freshly ground to order. More recently we added their teas to our portfolio. These come in pyramid tea bags which allow the leaves (no dust here) to expand fully while infusing. Come and try these for yourself at our meet the producer event. Details below.
Hungry Guest Bakery 11am – 4.30pm Friday 31st April 2017
We have been buying our sour dough and other baked good from this bakery for some time. They maintain a high standard and have a faultless reputation in the area for their products. Costing a little more than our general bakery range due to the slow fermentation process. Its well worth the extra investment as this bread rarely goes mouldy and refreshed to use in breakfast dishes, salads and desserts. Check our our recipe here for making a traditional Spanish breakfast dish with sour dough called Migas.
Grass Roots Bakery 10.30am-3pm Saturday 1st April 2017
We have quietly been selling this wonderful bread mix for the three months. We are delighted that Andrea has agreed to come and do a meet the producer event with us. Grass Roots is a bakery born out of necessity. A coeliac, Andrea was dissapointed by a lot of the bread products around which to her didn’t seem to have good texture or flavour. So she decided to make her own. After months perfecting her recipe, Andrea a former chemist was ready to launch. She started selling freshly baked bread but with a short shelf life, farm and health food shops were unwilling to stock her bread even though it tasted delicious. Bread mixes are the result and a perfect solution. Once made the bread freezes really well and its versatile too. Pizza bases and sweetened bread recipes work well with this product. If you are a coeliac or gluten intolerant this could be the perfect product for you.
