Freshly cooked, nutritious school meals

All our recipes are good-for you family favourites. From bolognaise and the classic roast to chilli and mild curries, we make sure that every dish is the healthiest, tastiest version of itself. And we always pack in as much locally sourced produce as we can, because it’s better for the children and for our planet.

We’re proud that so many of our vegetables come from local, Lincolnshire farmers and are grown just a few miles from our kitchens – freshly picked, in season vegetables not only taste great, they’re packed full of nutrients too.

But our commitment to buy local doesn’t stop there…..our sausages are made by our local butcher and our baker is just a few villages away. We also buy our fish from a local fishmonger and our meat is only ever from British farmers.

All our ingredients are ones you would use in your own kitchen, so there are no nasty additives or preservatives in our meals. We try to use as many wholegrains as we can to top up the nutritional value of our dishes and for us, there’s never any need to add sugar to main meals – we simply use foods like butternut squash and sultanas to add a bit of natural sweetness.

We freshly prepare and cook all our meals every day in our kitchens. And because we’re based in the heart of Lincolnshire, we only have very short delivery journeys, which means our food arrives freshly cooked and tasting at its very best.


  • We love the fact that the meals are consistently nutritious, fresh, colourful and well balanced with locally sourced ingredients. It is an added bonus for the local communities, that The Farm Kitchen support other local businesses whilst providing an excellent service.

  • Winchelsea have worked with Farm Kitchen for at least ten years. They provide healthy hot meals which make a big difference to our children’s school day. Meatballs are a big favourite! Their various other campaigns are fantastic and we have linked growing our own vegetables to cooking and eating them too.

  • The majority of our pupils enjoy their school lunches, which can be summed up by a quote from one of our pupils - 'The roast is as good as Granny’s'.

  • The Farm Kitchen have encouraged our children to investigate and enjoy different vegetables and the competitions and theme days are a big favourite. The relationship between Farm Kitchen and the school is strongly developed to ensure that the provision evolves and strengthens continually.
