Food at Edgbaston on Match Days
Fordhall Farm are our exclusive major match day food catering partner. The supply all 27 units that are open all around the stadium at Edgbaston. We are really proud of the quality of food we produce and we thought we’d share with you where it all comes from…
Fordhall Farm is situated just outside of Market Drayton in Shropshire, it’s England’s first community owned farm and is owned by over 8000 shareholders. Tenant farmer Ben and the rest of the team hand rears grass-fed beef and lamb as well as free range Gloucester Old Spot pigs.
Fordhall Farm’s catering units aim to supply fresh, honest and sustainable food to events, with a wide range of options available. All of their meat is fully traceable back to the individual animal. The burgers are 100% Aberdeen Angus, and the sausages are from outdoor reared, free-range pigs- neither contain any artificial additives and are all handmade on the farm in our butchery. All of the stock is locally sourced where possible, they use British suppliers of milk and other produce. We aim to use as little plastic as possible on our catering units: we only use environmentally safe and completely compostable food trays, cups and cutlery. Any bags used are paper and we recycle all packaging used by our suppliers.
Fordhall Farm are proud to have been voted Paleo Meat Supplier of the Year in 2017.
In 2017 around 25% of their staff were local to the Birmingham area, with the remainder local to the farm. For the last 2 years they have not used any agency staff and recruited all of our employees internally. Foodhall fully train all of our staff internally, and offer opportunities for progression of role and pay.
Now we’ve introduced where the food comes from, over the next month we’ll be looking at exactly what food we’ll be serving this year, including vegan, halal and even the introduction of some fantastic new units.
Plus, find out what drinks bar is the newest addition to the beach area – all thanks to a twitter poll!
