Meet Our Suppliers - Church Farm Brewery
WHO ARE YOU? WHAT’S YOUR STORY, HOW & WHY DID YOU GET INTO THE BUSINESS?
We are Church Farm Brewery, a family owned and run Micro Brewery. We stopped milking cows and started brewing beer in 2012 We are living our best life!
WHAT MAKES THE BUSINESS A COOL PLACE TO BE
What’s not cool about working in a brewery! Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy!
IF YOU WEREN’T RUNNING THE BUSINESS WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING
I would be the wife of a Dairy Farmer who would be milking cows, twice a day, seven day a week, 365 days of the year who would be spending little or no time with the family, now we work together and socialise together in the brewery.
WHAT’S ON THE HORIZON
End of lockdown we hope! Festivals will be back and we are doing a very exciting collaboration with another brewery………
WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT
We are family, we love what we do, we work where we live and live where we work! We are passionate about producing a quality product! We’ve made mistakes along the way but we have learnt and grown with them! As Nelson Mandela famously said “I never lose. I either win or I learn. True that!
Winning a British Farming Award for Diversification & Innovation! It changed everything for us, the Brewer even made an appearance on BBC Countryfile.
A VALUABLE LESSON
Engaging with the people that buy your product in pubs! When lockdown began and hospitality closed our fantastic customers answered our call for support, buying beer from us to drink at home, hundreds of them! For that we are so so grateful, without them we would have been dead in the water! Our customers are the best!
Our Church Farm IPA, our best selling beer ever! Its gorgeous, fresh, hoppy beer. I challenge you not to love it!
