Food is at the heart of Medicine – it nourishes us while also connecting us. We support regenerative food production, that nourishes our soil as well as us, boosts biodiversity, and celebrates independent food production that improves communities and has a positive social impact. All our food is vegetarian, with vegan options.
The Medicine Café, Heartwood Café and Cacao Bar
These principles above, as well as choosing local and seasonal produce, guide our in house cafés – The Medicine and Heartwood Cafés. Serving breakfast from 7:30am and delicious all day food until 10pm, The Medicine Café has plenty of hearty and healthy options, as well as an incredible Tea Bar with a large selection of special teas and quality coffee.
The Heartwood Café is new this year – we decided to expand our in-house offerings as our Café was so popular last year. This space will have cheaper food options and coffee, and will also house our community live music stage hosted by Lovejam.
New this year is our Cacao Bar in our new chill out space – get comfy, connect with others and get your natural cacao high everyday! We will have cacao mixed with medicinal mushrooms, immune boosting magic and other tasty additions.
Karma is our Elixir Wizard – professionally trained in nutrition and bringing his wealth of knowledge to curating an alcohol free menu of drinks. When Karmaceuticals comes to sourcing ingredients, experience in organoleptic inspection of botanicals, a broad knowledge of chemical constituents that have been rigorously scrutinised and studied before being published in scientific journals, and a regularly updated knowledge of potential contaminants due to botanical similarity of species, result in the highest quality control standards for every element of what they do. This is botanical innovation at its finest.
Street Food Market
Our Street Food Market showcases a diversity of global vegetarian cuisine. Keep healthy with arrays of salads, Ayurvedic Indian food, ferments and plant powered dishes, or indulge in halloumi fries, vegan burgers, crepes, and artisan cakes.
All our food and drink operations have committed to having decent cheaper kids options for all meals of the day. We are also extending opening hours to have earlier food options for when kids are up and about.
Folklore & Forage Banquet
Join us for a magical banqueting event celebrating foraging, wild food and folklore at Medicine Festival this summer with foraged by fern!
Walk barefoot with Fern through the woodland and over field to discover an array of herbs, wildflowers and summer mushrooms.
As we meet these plant allies you will learn how to safely identify, sustainably harvest, process and enjoy them.
You’ll be surprised at how many of the ‘weeds’ at your feet are delicious ingredients, healing plant medicines and ancient craft materials.
We’ll also explore the folk stories and legends that have been told about the plants we meet,. while we gather as a community, allowing ourselves to enjoy the most ancient and intrinsic joy of foraging.
After our forage, we’ll sit down to a wild banquet hosted by Fern, and experience the flavours of the plants we’ve harvested together. Our three-course meal will include many of the plants we meet on our walk, crooked with love to bring out their best.
Join us on Sunday 21st August at Medicine Festival – there will be two sittings, 12pm & 3.30pm
