Being the newest addition to Leopard Print Ltd, I am slowly being introduced to many aspects of the company, which together form the business.
As I am based in the Cornwall branch. Greg Morris, from the London head office, came down to teach me a little bit about door to door cold calling. For those unfamiliar with this term, it means to visit businesses door to door in order to not only introduce yourself, but promote your company, which hopefully, in tern, will lead to new customers.
With this in mind, Greg and I set out in Cornwall, in and around the area of Perranarworthal, and thus began my first day of personalised cold calling.
Surprisingly, there were quite a few business close by, all of which welcomed us to talk with them about their printing needs as well as their companies.
When driving out of Perrarworthal, going along the beautiful country lanes, we came across a sign labelled ‘Cusgurne Organic Farm’. It caught my eye straight away, probably because I not only have a love for food, but more so, organic produce. We decided to drive in and see what it was all about.
As we turned into the farm, I was delighted to see such bountiful greenery flowing between the polly tunnels, from first impressions, it already seemed like a positive and healthy environment. Inside the tunnels were row upon row of wonderful organic produce that filled the space within and opposite the tunnels sat the star of the show, the ‘Cusgurne Organic Farm Shop’.
Greeting us by the entrance of the shop were two beautiful, friendly dogs, who made my day even better. Once I had finished stroking the dogs, we were able to proceed into the shop, which was fantastic. Filled with incredible ethically grown, organic produce that was harvested from the farm. There was such a variety of both fruit and vegetables. Beautiful, vibrant, colourful food that showcased what ‘Cusgarne Organic Farm’ is all about.
It was so great to speak to the family that owned the farm that has been in the family for over 250 years. They were so passionate about not only their farm, but about the environment and more to the point, how they farm.
Using only green farming practices, ‘Cusgarne Organic Farm’ have successfully created a wonderful company that not only offers a farm shop with wonderful home-grown organic produce, it also supplies an amazing array of organic products, from organic ice-creams and gluten-free flour to organically farmed meats and beauty products. ‘Cusgurne organic farm’ also deliver incredible seasonal food at reasonable prices, straight to your door.
This hidden gem nestled in the village of Cusgurne has been such a great find.
Having eaten some of their produce I was impressed with the generous sizes and flavours that their produce offered compared to that of other shops. With both a wonderfully friendly and welcoming shopping experience with staff that actually care, I would recommend ‘Cusgarne Organic Farm’ to everyone, regardless of their eating habits or lifestyle choices. I guarantee that ‘Cusgurne Organic Farm’ will have something that takes your fancy and that you will not be disappointed!
