For those that have never heard of Cobbs Farm it was establish in 2007 and founded out of a passion for supplying quality food with provenance to our customers. They’ve grown a small group which now include seven farm shops featuring cafés and other delightfully foodie additions such as traditional butchery counters, fishmongers, delicatessen counters, artisanal floristry and giftware.
The public’s interest in supporting the local and regional artisan producers continues to grow and cobbs seem to be playing a big part in ensuring that support continues to flourish. A willingness to reduce food miles and in turn our carbon footprint has seen their businesses go from strength to strength and ensure they remain one of the UK’s largest and leading farm shop group.
How have Takeaway Packaging contributed in helping Cobbs?
We supply the farm shops with all their biodegradable napkins, cups, lids and stirrers. This was one occasion where the customer had their own artwork. When it comes to branding, we are very flexible and are more than happy to work with artwork that is given, alternatively we can start completely from scratch and work with the customer to bring their vision to life.
This job took 12-14 weeks to produce and we hold their stock in our warehouse and they call of goods when needed. So, if this was something you were worrying about, stress no more.
What is there to do at Cobbs Farm?
When we say there is something for the whole family, we really mean it. There is a butchers, fishmongers, vineyard, café, florist and a brand new Play Barn. So, if you wanted to take the kids for something to eat in the café, then drop them at the play barn while you have a stroll round the rest of the farm then this is the place for you!
They have a fully licensed café serving breakfast, homemade fresh meals, light bites all using homegrown or local produce – you couldn’t really ask for much more.
Are there any upcoming events worth visiting?
Yes – there are two events coming up next month. There is a wine and cheese evening for the adults on 4th July and then on the 13th there is a Tractor Ted event where the kids race around the track or play in the digger den. The one good thing about this as well is that it is free! You don’t have to pay for the tractor ride or to play in the digger den. Simply round up the family and head down for a fun filled day of activities.
