MY FARM COMMUNITY
Ben’s biltong is situated on Church Farm just outside of Warwick. Church Farm was a full working dairy farm until 2012 when the owners sold their herd and converted it into Church Farm Brewery. They also rent out some of the old farm buildings to several local small businesses, like Ben’s Biltong.
I love having my butchery on the farm. It’s a peaceful place to come to work each morning and provides some fabulous sunrises and sunsets. With other small businesses sharing the farm buildings, it also provides a comradery which you don’t usually get as a one-man small business. The other small business owners have all become friends and we’re always there to help each other out.
The bread&co bakery is on Church Farm making delicious artisan breads and homemade cakes for their café in Warwick, as well as lots of pubs, restaurants and cafes in Warwick and Leamington. They also do amazing catering, so if you’ve got an event coming up, give them a call.
Spectacular Goat use the farm and run a street food stall selling the most amazing woodfired sourdough pizzas. Spectacular Goat attend local festivals and are also available for private hire at corporate events and private parties. The owners of Spectacular Goat also run the award-winning Dough & Brew in Warwick.
Church Farm Brewery are the owners of the farm and are very passionate about what they do. They brew by hand, the traditional way and source their ingredients locally, to produce cracking beers. You can purchase their beers online or enjoy them at lots of local Warwickshire pubs. If you haven’t tried them, give them a go.
There’s a real sense of community on the farm, which comes from all the businesses enjoying what we do and a shared desire to make our businesses a success. We also all enjoy having a laugh and a bit of fun, which helps to make the farm a great place to work.
