Blair Drummond based Fallen Tree Coffee Truck is a familiar sight at local events, offering great coffee and freshly squeezed juices from their eye-catching Landrover Defender. With four wheel drive, they can pretty much pitch up anywhere, anytime!
Fallen Tree has served up coffee at indoor and outdoor events across Scotland, from festivals and family events such as Arnprior Pumpkins to weddings and film sets.
Covid-19 may have wiped out most of their bookings for 2020, but Michelle has been determined to keep her business going; spotting opportunities to support other local businesses during the chaos and keep on serving coffee to her loyal customers.
Michelle said: “During lockdown, we collaborated with our amazing business neighbours, Briarlands Farm. With their facilities closed due to Covid-19 and thousands of ripening strawberries, Briarlands invited us to sell coffee from our truck while they operated a strawberry and cake pick up service. We had no idea what to expect and were overwhelmed by the local support, with many people coming along every week to buy a punnet of strawberries and coffee.”
She added: “As cafes and restaurants began to reopen, we also formed a new collaboration with the amazing Vera Artisan Bakery in Stirling. Another female run business with a passion for buying the best local produce. It makes me happy to say that you can still experience our coffee 6 days a week! We love our new collaborative space. While definitely a different pace from busy events, it gives us even more opportunity to showcase some of the amazing coffees and roasters that Scotland and the wide UK has to offer. Without sweeping rain and gail force gusts getting in the way!”
