Hillside animal sanctuary

We've been supporting Hillside Animal Sanctuary for many a year, with donations, selling their lovely Christmas cards, and even adopting a Donkey! So we were thrilled to hear news this week that they have found  a second site to offer further sanctuary to animals rescued from dire situations.

Currently situated just outside Norwich, they provide a home for some 2000 animals, including 1200 horses, but urgently need more acreage.  Just recently Hillside received an offer of land close to their existing site complete with barns and stables, and so began an appeal for donations. The sanctuary are inviting people people to buy a square yard of land for the very reasonable sum of £3 and will issue a certificate for every donation.

Lemon and mulberry cake

The newest addition to our menu of gluten free cakes is a summery lemon and mulberry cake! 

Refreshing, moist and just sweet enough. It won't last long, so grab a slice whilst it's still here!

Where does our organic produce come from? A little about Snakehall farm

Every spring at Arjuna we excitedly await our first delivery of seasonal produce from the wonderful people at Snakehall Farm.  As the summer days go by, the deliveries get bigger and bigger as more and more delicious organic produce arrives, culminating in a small invasion of vibrant squashes and smashing pumpkins (sorry).

But it's not just the quality and freshness of the produce we love about Snakehall Farm.  Situated just a short hop from the city in picturesque Reach, the farm comprises of 18 acres of organically certified land managed as a charitable social enterprise by The Prospects Trust. 

Committed to a philosophy of “Growing Differently”, they provide supported work experience, training and life skills to adults with learning difficulties, disabilities and varying health needs. Involved in every aspect of the farm from sowing, cropping and grading, they are supported and encouraged to grow.  There is also a wonderful farm shop on site, well worth a visit!

As more of Snakehall Farm's fantastic produce starts to arrive with us this summer, we'll be posting photos and keeping you up to date. 

To learn more about The Prospects Farm you can also visit their blog at

In our delivery this week we received some very cheerful rainbow chard!

And some very cute mini cucumbers

Independent retailer month

This July Arjuna is celebrating Independent Retailer Month, a global campaign acknowledging the value of shopping local, supporting independent & artisan shops, and preserving the character and diversity of our high streets.

Statistics recently published by The Centre for Local Economic strategies suggest that for every £1 spent with a local independent business, between 50p-70p circulates back into the local economy.

Whilst Cambridge may not have adopted a local currency such as the Brixton pound, it is possible find nearly everything you might need exclusively on Mill Road, as well as unique products you won't find anywhere else!

We try very hard to make shopping at Arjuna a personal and enjoyable experience, and are very grateful to all our loyal customers who ensure we can continue to bring you sustainable, ethical and yummy food!

This month we'd love to see as many of you as possible, so please come in to say hello and find out what's happening in our kitchen and our range of seasonal special offers.
