This is a new and exciting job-share role responsible for the planning and preparation of dishes at Bath City Farm’s new community café. The café is currently under construction with a planned opening date of Easter weekend (mid-April) 2022.


Passionate about food, you will plan and cook vibrant, seasonal, nutritious, and affordable dishes that showcase the farm’s produce and establishes the reputation of the Farm as a destination providing delicious food and drink.


You will have an excellent understanding of food preparation and flavours and be able to prepare visually appealing dishes from scratch, using fresh ingredients that are healthy, local and seasonal. Dishes should tell the field to fork story, promoting produce that is grown on the farm.

The Farm Café


Set within the communities of Twerton and Whiteway, the building is full of natural light with outside terraced areas that look across the valley into the Georgian centre of Bath on one side. Adjacent is a children’s play area. In front of the café is an edible garden providing a visual connection between farm grown produce and the dishes served in the café.


Initially the café will be open Tuesday to Saturday, work hours will generally be 8am – 4pm. We will serve breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake throughout the day. Within 6-months we expect to extend opening hours to include Sundays and will look to facilitate occasional evening events. Some weekend and evening working may therefore be required.


The Café Cooks will be responsible for delivering the breakfast and lunch service at the café. They will also support participants of the farm’s catering programmes to assist with the preparation of dishes, front of house and washing up.
