Mel shares her closely guarded recipe for this sumptuous coconut dal, otherwise know as “Roald Dal”! You’ll find all of the ingredients in our farm shop on North Street, and why not pick-up some local craft beers to go with it. Perfect combo to brighten up any gloomy January day…
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
After 11+ years of bread-making and continuous growth at Mark’s Bread, Mark and Maria are hanging up their aprons and handing over the business to Tobacco Factory Enterprises.
Well 2020 didn’t exactly turn out as planned. Now that our second full year on the farm is coming to an end it’s time to reflect on what we have achieved and figure out where we’re going next.
