Welcome to The Allotment, we are Bernie and Martin, a husband and wife team.  We have a passion for growing and eating our own produce and believe that organic, pesticide free and home-grown is not only healthier, but tastes far better.  We like to use our salads and vegetables here in the coffee shop.  We have an Allotment (veg plot) at New Springs Horticultural Society and also aim to use other members’ surplus produce.

When our fruit and vegetables run low, we aim to source from local organic suppliers, notably Greenslate Community Farm, Billinge, who share our values.

Our organic award winning Lancashire cheese is from Leagram Organic Dairy, Chipping and our milk is always organic.

Jams and Chutneys are made in small batches by Reedy’s, who recently won the English Food Produce of the Year Award.  Reedy’s source the majority of their ingredients from Lancashire and don’t use artificial ingredients or additives.

Our bread is from All You Knead, an artisan bakery at Haigh Hall Courtyard.

Eggs are sometimes kindly provided by our pet chickens, which are spoilt with organic feed and vegetable peelings.

Coffee is provided by Roberts & Co, which is roasted at Cedar Farm, near Parbold.

Ice Cream is high quality and contains no hidden nasties.  We also use this in our milkshakes.

We hope that you enjoy sitting and relaxing at The Allotment and that you are inspired to grow and eat more vegetables.
