They cook everything from scratch in their tardis like kitchen here on the farm including bread, pastries, smoothies, pickles, fermentations & cordials. Paddy and his teams aim is to be the only process on your foods journey from the field to your plate. They also love coffee and with the help and guidance of Wogan coffee in bristol we hope to deliver a tasty beverage too!
Paddy approached us to help give him a digital side to the business so customers could find him and find out more about his offering. Stage 1 was to get a website up and running showcasing the food on offer, opening times, and contact details. Stage 2 has been to get the eCommerce side fo the business up and running so he can take bookings online and not worry too much about admin and phone calls.
We immediately decided on WordPress as the simplest solution. Enabling Paddy and his team to be able to make quick alterations using Elementor site builder. The website is fast and secure and has the ability to grow into anything he wants. The joy of WordPress is tha ability to make it do pretty much anything you like, from eCommerce to subscription-based businesses. It is also easy to edit from a laymans point of view.
As of this week, Gold Hill Farm Kitchen is offering Friday supper clubs. Customers can now go online to the website and book tables for the first event and choose their main course from a drop-down. The whole process takes away any hassles with phone bookings and removes the need to pay for a hosted service like Dishcult or Res Diary and keep the info in-house.
