On 24th March we held our first annual “East Anglia’s Best Barista” competition as The…
Partnering for brighter futures…
Our new partnership with The Feed has been a great success so far.
Our aromatic artisan coffee is being lovingly served up at The Feed’s market stall in Norwich.
And soon you’ll be able to find it at their new training, coffee and sandwich shop which is opening later this year.
Not to mention the success we have had with all the fantastic people who come from The Feed to receive basic barista training.
This gives them great skills to take forward into the future and will give them an opportunity to work in the coffee industry.
If you’re new to our blog here’s a little more about us:
We roast our coffee at our Rackheath-based roastery, which is also where all our office and warehouse is situated too.
Using state of the art roasting, grinding and loading equipment we passionately roast our coffee and curate and perfect blends.
Fresh and ready to be delivered and sent out to our customers to serve up either in their cafe, bar, pub or even just for your morning coffee on the sofa.
The Feed help train and support people who have been in homelessness to work in the food and hospitality industry.
Our friend Matt Townsend, chief executive of The Feed said: “We are delighted to be working with Green Farm Coffee who make such an excellent product. We love coffee and it is a great opportunity for our trainees to be able to see how it’s made and learn basic barista skills. The coffee industry is a great opportunity for our trainees to learn a skill and get into work. We are also really enjoying selling their coffee at our market stall, it goes great with our selection of sandwiches, salads and cakes.”
Mike our Sales Manager at Green Farm has said: “At Green Farm Coffee we are continuing to grow and support our local community and businesses as much as possible, and with that in mind we are delighted to announce our partnership with Norwich Civic charity of the year – The Feed.
Since beginning our relationship with The Feed we at Green Farm HQ have all witnessed the important work they provide to our community. The passion they have in helping their trainees with personal support, as well as the provision of excellent training in skills they can then take on to the outside world, is second to none, and it is something we as a business want to help grow and nurture as much as possible.
Working as a partner with The Feed gives us not only the opportunity to provide them with much needed new equipment but also our own locally roasted Green Farm coffee to serve to the lucky visitors. Most importantly, however, it is a positive platform for their trainees to learn basic barista skills and as much coffee knowledge as we can pass on, hopefully giving them opportunities to obtain a career in this or other catering trades.
“We are extremely excited about our partnership with The Feed and the future plans they and we have together. Our own staff have already gained knowledge and experience through training sessions we’ve worked on together so far, and we cannot wait to do more! We feel very lucky to be able to work with their team on such an important issue within our community, the future is that bit brighter with charities like The Feed, but for the not so bright days….we’ll bring the coffee!“
The Feed is currently crowdfunding to open a new training facility in Norwich city centre, to support them visit www.crowdfunder.co.uk/off-the-street-into-the-kitchen
We can all make a difference to the community and improve peoples lives.
