  1. 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.

  3. CF Blog: Weekend Eats

    SATURDAY

    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

  10. CF Blog: Christmas lists sorted

    Christmas is the most magical time of the year for a lot of reasons. For us foodies here at Cotswold Fayre it means getting out all the best chutneys and pickles, taking the turkey and stuffing to the next level and indulging in all the things that you only eat at that time of year.

    But it’s also magical for the younger generation, houses are decorated, there’s promise of presents and a seemingly endless supply of chocolate, what more could they want! While the grown-ups are busy sorting out everything needed for the festivities, the children become more and more excited, and we’ve got the perfect things to keep them occupied throughout the build-up and some great gift ideas too.
