1. CF Blog: How are we changing the world?

    You might have seen that we recently released our Impact Report which includes all the things we have been doing as a company to improve our impact on the planet. Part of being a B Corp means that we are determined to be a force for good, by doing our bit for the people and planet ahead of profits. 

    One of the things that we pride ourselves on, is that our employees share the values that we hold as a company. And we are all trying to do our bit to ensure that we leave the planet in a better way that we found it, even if it’s just with small changes.

  4. Spotlight On: B Corps

    You might have heard us talk about B Corp before but what does it actually mean? Well in short, B Corps™ are businesses that meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. We are using our certification as a spring board to promote big change within the company. We were already ‘doing good’ but now we trying to promote change throughout our supply chain.

    Being a B Corp means our business has real purpose and is striving towards being a force for good. Cotswold Fayre’s goal is to have a positive impact on the planet and everyone on it as well. We try to promote this as our point of difference for our customers, so when they chose to buy from us, not only are they getting a good price, they are also helping us to give back to the world.

  6. CF Blog: Weekend Eats


    The best way to start a weekend is with a proper British fry-up. For me, the bacon has to be streaky and smoky so this Bacon from Grasmere Farm is a winner. Fried, poached or scrambled these Rich Yolk Eggs add great colour to the plate, but also great in a cake if you’re doing a spot of baking over the weekend. Black Pudding from The Farmers Son is a great add-on if you’re goi
