It has been great fun over the past 25 years building a circular local economy with the Tobacco Factory at its hub. We have had our challenges – and none greater than now…
At Tobacco Factory, our core aim is to be a model of social, environmental and economic sustainability. In early 2018, we decided to develop these values further by fully embracing the principles of the ‘farm to fork’ movement. We purchased five acres of land near Backwell, just to the south of Bristol, and set about establishing our very own farm. The name ‘Five Acre Farm’ was irresistible, emphasising the small holding approach that is central to the spirit of the farm.
We grow with organic principles to make the best use of nature, to do our bit in farming as sustainably as possible. Our produce is available to buy in our Farm Shop on North Street, Bristol, or online for collection or delivery. You can also get our seasonal veg straight to your door with our popular veg boxes!
Food for thought
We love Hodmedod’s product range, and think you will too! We have lots of their ever growing range in the shop, including beans, lentils, split peas, quinoa, coriander seeds, flour and wheat.
We had a chat with Charles to discuss his food passions and his vision for Five Acre Farm, Tobacco Factory and Grain Barge…
