Farm owners Brian & Jackie Kilcourse have had the ambition of owning a coffee shop for many years. Having worked and managed a livery yard for over 30 years we really have seen the local area change and thrive with Urmston becoming one of the most sought-after areas to live in the UK. On the back of the local area becoming more popular and footpaths along the river being used by many, Jackie ramped up her dream of owning her own coffee shop and explored the possibility of making it a reality. With lifelong friends Dane & Jennifer Smith now on board, contributing to the initial ideas and their previous business experience proved to be the final piece of the jigsaw! Between us 4 we now had everything we needed to turn what was once a dream into a thriving coffee shop business.
Since opening its fair to say it hasn’t been plain sailing, initial plans and ideas for group walks, local area & history tours, wood-fired pizza ovens, ice cream vans, live music, educational visits have all had to be shelved. But we are very keen to explore these ideas as we move into 2021 and would love to hear more about what you, the local people want to see; if you have any suggestions drop us a message.
Keen to always give something back, we have a real sense of community spirit and since opening, we have donated over £3,000 to local charities, individuals, schools and community groups.
