We are working with the Beech Cafe, which runs year round at the Sustainability Centre, to provide excellent food as a cornerstone of our 2013 weekend.
The Beech Cafe will be open until 8pm on the Friday, and from 10am to 8pm on the Saturday and Sunday of the festival. The cafe offers a range of organic, Fair Trade, vegetarian and vegan food, from a hearty ploughman’s and a roasted Mediterranean vegetable and feta pasty, to banana and walnut loaf, carrot cake and flapjacks. You can see a sample menu here (PDF).
In addition, the mobile Coyote Moon Cafe will be open all day serving delicious home-cooked food that’s (as much as possible) local, fair trade and organic. They will also be running a bar. We listened to feedback from last year’s festival and so Coyote moon will be selling a much larger selection of food than was available last year.

There is no shop on site, but there is a small mini-market store in nearby East Meon for milk and essentials.
