Having finally accepted that we can’t make everything, open six days a week and run workshops – all from the same small space, we are in the process of expanding. A new off-site production base has opened in Lenwade, taking pressure off the shop and helping us to meet growing wholesale demand. We have now also bought additional premises on St Gregory’s Alley, close to our Pottergate shop
Our additional premises require substantial renovation before it can open, around Easter 2019. Once completed it will mean we can provide indoor seating on two floors – and hot food! They also provide a great space to finally launch our long planned workshops in Spring 2019. These will show how quick and easy it is to make your own soya milk @ home. We’ll be adding workshops on making tofu at home and cooking with tofu as the programme expands.
Lasting just over 2 hours, our workshops are a fun and practical way to a dairy alternative. Costs will include all materials and use of equipment – just bring yourself, curiosity and enthusiasm – take home a litre of soya milk and a free set of ingredients for your next batch
