We have had so much support for our business, not only from our wonderful customers (old and new) but also from those who have shared and recommended our online shop and our story.
Today we wanted to shine the spotlight on The Corona Community and Bristol Food Union. Lock down has been a trying time for many businesses, not just small-batch food producers like us. Both of these organisations have only come about from the COVID19 situation and from themselves being put in tough positions. From mothballing their own businesses, the people involved have created something new. They started platforms to promote and help the interests of the wider community, putting their own situations on hold. By doing this they created something very special, building new platforms for small businesses to shine and a space for the food community to come together and help everyone.
You can find out more at www.bristolfoodmovement.org and
on Instagram @thecoronacommunity
It's a great way to find out about new producers and initiatives and a chance to discover small brands, shop local and online and help to save our fantastic range of British food producers.
Project name: New Cheddar
The aim of this project has been to start cheddar production at Trethowan's Dairy. The funding has supported the purchase of all new equipment required to produce cheddar, as well the design and build of a chilled cheddar store adjacent to the current dairy. It is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
