Cafés, farm shops & market stall

We have two farm shops, one at Northchurch and the other at Hemel Food Garden. Both sell Sunnyside produce such as fresh eggs, honey, jam and vegetables. They both champion local food and promote local organic and fair-trade food.

Adjacent to the farm shop at Hemel Food Garden is our Sunnyside Up café. The café has a warm and friendly atmosphere and is dog and children friendly. Situated in a sunny spot, it has an outside seating area and is a popular destination for passers-by along the canal. During the winter months we have also opened our ‘Glass house cafe’ space, warm and spacious, ideal for when its cold and wet. The café uses organic ingredients, promotes zero waste and plastic free products. It also offers vegetarian and vegan options on the menu.

The Hub Cafe, is a cafe space at the Active Dacorum Hub, a community-based venue in the Grovehill / Woodhall Farm area, adjacent to the football pitches and Adventure Playground. Drinks & sandwiches are made to order and it is child and dog friendly. 220404 APEX menu and drinks A4

The café provides our trainees the opportunity to learn all the skills required to run a café, such as customer service, handling money, barista, cooking and stock control.
