Run and owned by duo Leanne Galloway and Chris Viljoen, with the support of a very dynamic team, The Farm Food Factory provides a space for the more conscious Foodie's to come and experience something different on the KZN South Coast. Nestled in a side street away from the hustle of the main business centre of Shelly Beach lies this vibey little eatery.
Here, healthy food and great taste truly get to know each other. Leanne creates the most mouth-watering dishes from the freshest ingredients the south coast has to offer. The food echo’s her core beliefs of producing local, ethical creative cuisine.
“Our mission was to supply the south coast with good quality, Real food. Free from preservatives and added nasties, just as food was intended. From humble beginnings, we started off doing home cooked meals, and then received the opportunity to take over a small coffee shop and quickly gained a loyal following. We soon after developed quite a big vegan following as well upon opting to do a vegan harvest table for Veganuary last year and saw how this became very popular.
We saw it as a challenge to keep introducing customers to fresh new Vegan recipes.
So we expanded on our menu and after the team pulled together to help us create our new premises, we opened at our New location in January. We were surprised at how well we were received. And now, we have people from all walks of life coming in to try some of our food. Even the most decerning meat eaters who try our vegan options out of curiosity, have Loved it!
We have created a space where like minded people can gather and share ideas, and we love being a place where other business owners and entrepreneurs that are interested in more eco-friendly solutions can come to share ideas and get us involved in their projects. We truly feel like we are part of a great community down here and feel blessed that we can share our love and passion with them.”
From a variety of plant based burgers, vegan nice-cream bowls, amazing wraps and beautiful Buddah Bowls to a selection of the best quality ethically sourced meat dishes, The Farm Food Factory truly has something for everyone.
We do believe in concious living, being aware of where your food comes from and what impact it has on our environment, and this follows through to our packaging and waste management.
