Invitation to Tender to operate Stepney City Farm Cafe

Invitation to Tender to operate Stepney City Farm Cafe

Stepney City Farm is a three acre working farm; a rural oasis, in the heart of Tower Hamlets. We give children and adults a chance to meet farm animals, learn how to grow food and try out arts and crafts. Every Saturday, the Farm hosts a popular Farmer’s Market.

We have an extensive education programme, with over 5,000 school children and young people benefiting from funded classes, tours and projects each year. We are an educational charity aiming to improve lives through farming; we provide a welcoming place to bring together our diverse community, and cultivate wellbeing through high-welfare, environmentally-sustainable farming practices.

We are now inviting tenders to operate our on-site Cafe and catering. The Café is the hub of our visitor experience, and forms part of an income portfolio supporting the Farm’s charitable work. The Farm’s mission is the promotion of ethically and locally produced food and sustainable farming systems, and the Café tender presents a unique opportunity for a partner demonstrating an alignment with this mission to connect with seasonal on-site food production.

Applicants will need to demonstrate an alignment with the values of Stepney City Farm, a compelling reason for their interest in this opportunity, experience and knowledge of the catering industry, a track record of success, and a robust business and marketing plan.
