5 Star Rating for Cafe

A 5 for Farm Café in its Food Hygiene Ratings

Swansea Community Farm is celebrating after securing a five for its food hygiene rating in its café. Every shop that sells food or serves food must display their food hygiene rating (which runs from 0 – urgent improvement necessary to the top mark of 5 – very good) and the Farm is proud to have achieved a 5 within its first year of opening. The café has a dual purpose, it provides fabulous farm fresh food for the public and is also a training café for the local community, teaching people to cook using farm fresh ingredients. 

In November last year the Farm helped a group of mums and a grandmother from Morriston and Clase to learn how to create healthy meals using fresh ingredients and getting the most out of their weekly shopping budget. The 6 week course, funded by North East Cluster Communities First and designed by the Farm’s Volunteer and Training Officer, Kate Gibbs, and Farm Chef, Jason Matthews, enabled local parents to come into the Farm and learn their way around the kitchen and create dishes that they can recreate at home for their families.   

“Scores on the door – a 5 is a fantastic result for the Farm.  The past year has been a great experience for me, having come into the role at the start of the café set up and seeing how far we have come over the last year and how much hard work has gone into creating such a fantastic environment for all of our customers and volunteers.  On the training side, we have developed some excellent cookery courses for local people of all abilities and I am really looking forward to a very busy year in the café at the Farm.” said Jason. 

If you want to try our fabulous farm food come along to our café (open Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 3.30pm) or if you want to find out more about the courses at the Farm, why not give Kate or Jason a ring on 01792 578384.
