LEADER funding for the café


S Clarke Farms working with Farmeco Community Care as part of a farm diversification project running from the Ecocentre, are proud to announce LEADER funding to extend our Kitchen Cafe.

An environmentally sustainable building on the Farm. We operate a range of community focused enterprises by linking people back to nature and improving local health and well being.

The Eco centre café which operates from the kitchen is promoting local produce and has increasing numbers of people calling in, including walkers and cyclists who come out to enjoy the countryside.

This allows us to promote our healthy eating and farm education messages to a wider and more diverse group. Extending the kitchen has allowing us to increase the throughput in the café. This will start a beneficial cycle, with more employees, leading to a better café experience, and a wider range of things we can offer (in terms of food and events)

· the name of the project: Ecocentre Kitchen Extension Project

· the source of the funding: European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
