This year, we’ve got all your feasting needs catered for with a delicious selection of traditional Farmfest classics alongside a host of new, truly scrumptious and filling foods to help make sure you’re fully fuelled for play. Plus a great range of fine craft beers, ales and ciders to help wash it down, and then some. (We are based in Somerset, after all.)
Farmfest’s home, Gilcombe Farm’s organic and free-range delights have been feeding us from the beginning. It’s fair to say they offer the best Hog Roast ever, and along with their range of quality burgers, sausages and other gourmet BBQ delights.
2017 will also see a new range of goodies, including breakfast wraps from their Gilcombe Kitchen, plus sister stalls featuring Fish & Chips, Thai Noodles and Friesian Cold Shakes, which are made with organic milk from the farm.
Organically grown and fairly sourced, Pyramid Organic offers a huge range of award-winning vegan and vegetarian foods for any time of the day. With eco credentials second-to-none, the food’s pretty impressive too. From delicious and creatively inspired burgers and salads, to breakfast brunches and baked potatoes bursting with goodness, Pyramid Organic has got it all covered.
Amrutha offer a delicious range of organic, raw, plant-based vegan foods, nourishing juices and smoothies, and their very own organic and wild-crafted tea blends. Inspired by the multicultural streets of South London, Amrutha’s mantra is simple: to produce vibrant, life giving food, where the seasons dictate the flavours.
With the simple idea of nurturing the very best from their ingredients, South Street Kitchen brings great flavours to life through wood, coal or smoke. At Farmfest, they’ll be serving up their truly divine crispy chilli squid.
Using sustainably sourced wood, Stone Baked’s oven heats to around 500 degrees, which means you won’t be hanging around long waiting for one of their exceptional, authentic tasting pizzas. A firm favourite around Bristol – they will be offering a range of tastes – including Italian classics, plus vegan, vege and gluten free options.
Bursting with creative ingredient combinations, delivering that winning combination of being both filling and full-on flavoursome. The perfect festival grab’n’go treat…
Who doesn’t love a delicious Belgian waffle, lavished with cream, fruit and sticky goodness? Using only traditional, homemade recipes, and traditional toppings and ingredients, such as the Belgian chocolate fudge sauce and imported pearl sugar, for that gorgeous caramelised crunch, Complete Waffle offers an authentic taste of continental heaven.
From artisan coffees to our range of delicious craft ales, beers and ciders, and with everything else in between, your thirst won’t go wanting. Watch out for our announcement later in 2017 for exciting new additions we have planned for this year!
Quality coffees served in style from their beautiful, purpose built retro trailer. Plus teas and infusions, hot chocolate, cakes, bakes and artisan pastries, as well as cold drinks and snacks, and you can even get a warming bowl of porridge.
Mouth-wateringly delicious, ground-to-order, espresso-based coffees, all served with lots of love from the back of a beautiful little Tuk-tuk.
Wild Beer wildbeerco.com
Wild Beer, Wild Yeasts, Wild Ingredients, Wild Ideas, Wild Ambitions….
The Wild Beer Co is located roughly 1 mile from the Farmfest site and perfectly illustrates what we are all about at Farm Festival, great local produce. They’ve been making wildly different beers and winning prizes for all their amazing varieties which will blow your taste buds away.
Bullbegger Cider, Lamyatt Community Orcard lamyatt.org.uk
Lamyatt formed a village co-operative to produce their own dry, medium cider. It’s named Bullbegger after the Spirit that’s said to roam Creech Hill at night and look down on the village. The whole village help harvest the ancient varieties of local apples in Ern’s orchard on Apple Day. The simple, old fashioned methods produce small quantities of clean, crisp and fresh tasting cider of the highest quality.
We are the only festival that you can buy Bullbegger Cider at, so make the most of it.
Brothers Fruit Ciders brotherscider.co.uk
Brothers first started selling their Pear Cider at the Glastonbury Festival in 1995 near what was then called the Jazz World Stage. It’s back again at Farmfest and you’ll be able to drink their light, refreshing ciders made using a variety of fruit.
Butcombe Bitters award winning handcrafted beers are brewed in the traditional way to the highest possible standards, using only the finest English and Continental hops, together with the best English malted barley. As a local Somerset brewery, we are proud to be pouring their pints at Farmfest.
Stowford Press westons-cider.co.uk
Stowford Press is a sparkling medium dry cider which has built its popularity on its taste and quality. It is the coupling of the Westons Cider traditional approach with contemporary modern techniques that make Stowford Press taste so good, especially on a sunny day, in a field.
In the Spirit will be hosting a cocktail bar at this year’s event, where you will be able to get your hands on something fresh and fruity with an added kick to get the party started.
