Our story so far

When good food brings people together great things happen. The first seeds of Flourish were sown when Paul Hargreaves, Chief Exec of fine food wholesaler Cotswold Fayre, joined forces with experienced retail and hospitality director, Paul Castle, to bring to life the idea of a positive-impact, planet-friendly restaurant and food retail destination.

In 2020, they teamed up with Adam Stratton, owner of Glenavon Farm, and set to work transforming redundant dairy buildings into a unique and exciting place for the local people and passers-by to stop, shop, eat and enjoy. Further plans being nurtured include wildflower meadows, beehives, a kitchen garden and much more besides. Flourish is bursting with life and brimming with ideas to see the local community thrive into the future. Watch this space…

Why 'Flourish'?

Our name reflects the ethos that drives our business and our lives: to be environmentally and socially responsible and to benefit people and our planet in everything we do.

For far too long, businesses have taken from people rather than giving to them. They’ve also taken from our planet as if it were their right to do so. They’ve treated both as resources from which they can extract as much as possible for the sole aim of maximising profits.

We’re the opposite of that. We’re committed to helping both people and planet to flourish through a shared passion for food.
