The Fold Cafe

The heart of The Fold
Outside The Fold

Welcome to an exceptional food experience

Real, healthy food from farm to plate in zero food miles, and a warm and welcoming athmosphere in our beautifully converted 17th century threshing barn.

The Fold Café creates 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. Where this isn’t possible we work with local ethical suppliers we know and trust.

Monday – Saturday: 9am – 4.30pm

Sunday: 10am – 4pm

Phone: 01886 833 112

Local – Seasonal – Organic

Local, seasonal and organic is what we’re all about – you’ll notice we even have it engraved above the kitchen!

We’re supplied by our own organic Fold Farm and other local organic growers from the area. Our meat is sourced from Adeys Farm in Berkeley.

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 ‘fairly traded’ and organic where possible.

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 where practical – please just ask.

Great location

Situated in a beautifully converted 17th century threshing barn The Fold Café offers delicious local, seasonal and organic food in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.

Combine your visit in the café with a walk on our nature trails, poking your head in to our artist and artisan studios or asking the farm team how our food is grown and how you can grow more of your own.

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
