The Fold Cafe

Outside The Fold

Wholesome, healthy and delicious food from farm to plate, cooked fresh every day in our kitchen. In zero food miles, we create local, seasonal and organic food in close collaboration with the Fold Farm. A lot of what you will eat has been grown only a few steps away by our team of dedicated growers. Where this isn’t possible we work with local, ethical suppliers we know and trust.

opening times

Monday – Saturday: 9am – 4.30pm
Sunday: 10am – 4pm

New Summer Menu’s!

Starting Monday 3rd June we will be launching our brand new menu ready for the summer months. It is full of fresh, healthy dishes, full of colour and flavour and showcasing some of the best produce from our own organic farm as well as some of our most cherished local suppliers. We will also be changing our breakfast menu, with our traditional hot breakfasts being served only on weekends, and during the week we will have a simpler, but just as exciting breakfast menu with some tasty new additions!

Next Supper Evening….

Wednesday 5th & thursday 6th june

This months supper club theme is a range of dishes inspired from various cuisines from across the Mediterranean. 

Call the cafe on 01886 833112 or email cafe@thefold.org.uk to book your place 

 

 

Here are some of the amazing dishes that were served up at our Thai themed supper evening in March

We’re supplied by our own Soil Association certified organic farm and other local organic growers from the area.

We do need to use some ingredients from slightly further afield such as our dried goods (spices, tea, coffee, grains and pulses etc), and we purchase these from the “Essential” food co-operative based in Bristol. We source Fairtrade and organic wherever possible and practical.

Our coffee is certified organic and fairly traded from Indonesia using a local, independent supplier and all of our milk and dairy is from an organic dairy in Tewkesbury.

We are fans of the Slow Food movement. At any one time our intention is to have a small but good and varied selection available. We are happy to cater for special dietary requirements wherever possible – please just ask!

What we offer….

Below are our new breakfast and lunch menu’s which are served seven days a week. We also serve lunch specials which change daily. Please ask staff for today’s specials.

Great location

Situated in a beautifully converted 17th century threshing barn, the Fold Café offers delicious home cooked food in a relaxing, ecologically sensitive space.

Combine your visit to the café with a walk on our nature trails, poke your head in to our artisan studios and shops, book a session with one of our many experienced therapists or ask the farm team how our food is grown and how you can subscribe to our beautiful, organic veg boxes with zero food miles!

The Fold Food Provenance Policy Statement

Here at The Fold, we look consciously at all we serve in the café with respect to its ethical and environmental considerations for our community.

We do this with each new recipe and the buying decisions of each product. We also have meetings with representatives of the Fold community where this is considered collectively.

This doesn’t make our life easy but it does make it easier to live with ourselves – to help us feel good about the food we sell and eat. We often find it very difficult to know what decisions to make – there are so many factors to think about! But we continue this journey and welcome your thoughts.

As a guide we endeavour to purchase:

  • 75% or more within 20 miles
  • 15% from the rest of Britain
  • 5% from Europe
  • 5% from the rest of the World

Within this, as much as possible will be organically grown (though not necessarily certified) and certainly fairtrade.

All meat will certainly be of known ethical provenance, free range and preferably organic.

All root vegetables will be organic

Use of ingredients from the Fold Farm will be maximised.

Groceries will be as organic where practical.

We do not:

  • use any ingredients with GM, or meat or dairy that has been fed with GM ingredients
  • use any palm oil
  • use any meat from industrial agriculture (i.e. wholesale)
  • use any non-organic root vegetables
  • buy in any ingredients that are available from the Fold Farm

Heritage Grains

If it takes six volunteers one and a half hours to sow thirty square metres... will all the old and heritage Winter grains saved from this year's harvest be sown before Christmas? The photo shows us preparing a bed for two varieties of wheat as part of the Fold's old...
