Rowcroft Hospice launches new business delivering ‘deliciously satisfying’ meals direct to your door

Devon Farm Kitchen is an exciting new social enterprise building long term income for Rowcroft Hospice. This pioneering new business will raise much-needed income for caring for people with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon. Devon Farm Kitchen is offering a range of high quality and ‘deliciously satisfying’ handmade meals to provide wholesome and nutritional support to people across South Devon.

Registered dietitians Sarah Jones and Debs Howland said: ”We have been delighted to be involved in such an exciting project, not only to support Rowcroft Hospice but also the nutrition of the people around us in our community. Food is very close to our hearts. Food is important not only for energy and strength, but also for the healthy functioning of the immune system, maintaining independence and mental health, as well as supporting healing and recovery when needed.”

With ever-growing consumer demands for convenient, high quality food delivered to people’s homes, Devon Farm Kitchen meals are freshly frozen providing ‘deliciously satisfying’, wholesome dishes in a sustainably convenient way. There is no plastic waste and all packaging is reusable or 100% recyclable and compostable.

Mark Hawkins, CEO at Rowcroft Hospice, said: “Our meals have been carefully developed with Peter Gorton, a fellow of the Master Chef’s of Great Britain and one of Devon’s finest chefs, to ensure they are ‘deliciously satisfying.’” The carefully crafted dishes are made using British sourced ingredients, with a focus on supporting local Devon farming and fishing communities. The dishes are prepared by Devon Farm Kitchen chefs and served directly on to returnable ceramic plates and bowls, making them easy to cook in a microwave or conventional oven.

There is so much choice. To name just a few family favourites, there’s delicious locally sourced roast beef and Yorkshire puddings, sausage and mash, Brixham fish pie, Thai fishcakes and vegetable curry. There are also sumptuous desserts including mouth-watering lemon curd pudding, rich sticky toffee pudding, and the heavenly chocolate and walnut pudding, along with a range of scrumptious local icecream for those who prefer lighter dessert.

Mark Hawkins said: “Devon Farm Kitchen will transform mealtimes for many people. We are proud to go above and beyond, using friendly and well-trained delivery drivers, all of whom are there to inform customers about the exciting range of meals and desserts, the nutritional benefits of each dish, and cooking instructions. Our goal is to become the number one frozen food delivery brand in Devon – delivering to your door the very best for taste, quality, service and dining experience. And we have ambitions to expand nationwide. Devon Farm Kitchen is all about giving something back to society by creating profits that will help sustain the vital service Rowcroft Hospice provides to patients across South Devon.”
