Bringing a dose of healthy eating to Macleay Street, The Farm owners, Josh and Lisa Thompson are firmly set on engaging the local community about how to eat in a healthy and sustainable manner. Through the supply of health foods, fresh produce and cafe that illustrates how to utilise them, The Farm offers a new way of food shopping and healthy eating.
Sydney-based design studio, TomMarkHenry were tasked with bringing the space to life, and have designed the space around the familiar process of harvesting fresh fruit and vegetables from a farm setting. The Farm’s cafe is set at the front of the space, which is framed by the silhouette of a triangular barn-shaped farmhouse. The cafe’s furniture has been manufactured with sustainability in mind, and spans durable raw materials including recycled pallets, reclaimed timber and sustainable bamboo, all supported by recycled steel structures. Moving further into the back of the space, the whole-food store is stocked with a variety of dry foods, fresh produce and bulk food bins, and all carry clear and simple labels to make the process of shopping and eating healthy easy.
