Our Harvest

Our harvest just gets bigger and better each year, with the invaluable expertise from our fab horticultural therapist and lots of hard work from our many green fingered volunteers – even our mini-dreamers from gardening club had a bumper crop! For more information contact us on

Stamps Brewery

We were delighted when Stamps took up residency at the hub as they produce top quality real ales, and they are a lovely group of folk who are passionate about the vital role pubs play in communities. Having an on-site micro-brewery also means our carbon footprint is practically zero as once the beer is ready, we simply ‘roll them over’ the field to the Lock & Quay! Stamps have been brewing since 2013, supplying the jointly-owned Stamps Bar in Crosby, with any spare capacity being sold in local bars. They brew a maximum of 4.5 barrels (36 gallons) per session and pride themselves on their beer being environmentally friendly with all of the used grain being taken to a local city farm where it is fed to ‘grateful’ pigs! They also offer a bespoke service providing private label bottled lager and bitter – generic beers that the client can label with their own branding. Whether you are looking for a unique ‘Wedding Day’ brew or an unusual corporate marketing tool.

Fresh Eggs

‘A Hen’s tale’ the story began with the donation of two tiny chicks that needed a home, so we made them one and ‘Molly’ and ‘Matilda’ were soon part of the SAFE family. Two soon became eight, with more hens joining the throng until ‘Matilda’ was swiftly retired to a lovely farm, when he turned out to be ‘Matty’!! The girls are now in a bigger hen-house which gives them lots of room to run around and even swings to play on (really!). We believe happy hens lay the best eggs which make the best cakes – Irene agrees…
