Milly Fyfe, No Fuss Meals for Busy Parents CIC

Hello! I’m Milly Fyfe, I’m a farmer, social entrepreneur and founder of No Fuss Meals for Busy Parents CIC.

In 2020, I began sharing farm life on social media to help people to cook easy meals from scratch using locally sourced produce during the pandemic. This quickly became a means to reduce children’s reliance on processed food and help families through the cost-of-living crisis. 


After attending The Windsor Leadership Course in February 2023 when I was at a cross roads with my PR and Marketing business, I wanted some direction to develop the cookery concept into a business idea with social purpose. That’s how No Fuss Meals for Busy Parents became a CIC and later this month we will celebrate our 1st birthday – hoorah! 


In that time the CIC has had a website facelift to make the content more user friendly. And a hero video has been produced to help showcase what difference it is making in the community.  


Small grants have been received to work with community food larders on outreach projects and also create video tutorials to inspire people in Northamptonshire to have a go at growing their own vegetables with Grow, Cook, Eat. 


The BIPC have been a huge support in providing online webinars to help with business development. One of the take home messages from a webinar on business strategy was to focus on two tasks at the beginning of each day that are going to get you noticed or make you money rather than diving into emails or other demands on your time first.  


Being a successful grant winner is going to really help with business growth. Now that I have established the business with good governance, communication, relationship building and PR coverage, I need to focus on a long term marketing strategy and how I am going to generate an income. Applying to grant giving organisations is very competitive and whilst I am actively seeking corporate sponsorship and social media paid partnerships, this all take a lot of time to see a return on investment.  


So I am looking to monetise certain elements of the business as I am a unique expert in my field (excuse the pun!) and have a lot of knowledge to share when it comes to growing, cooking and eating. I’m also looking much further ahead by building a cookery school on the farm, subject to successful grant applications, to help provide highly demanded in person workshops which will help with trading and generate long term income.


Would you like to come along to an immersive on-farm workshop where you can collect eggs from the chickens and make a quiche? Or go down the garden, dig up some vegetables and make a delicious soup? Or perhaps know more about what you could grow in your own garden or other produce grown in the UK? Please drop me an email to: hello@millyfyfe.com as I’m designing various workshops for the community and also as corporate wellbeing days. 


I’d also be very keen to hear from businesses who are proactive with their corporate social responsibility and would like to align themselves with the work of the CIC.  


The future for No Fuss Meals for Busy Parents CIC is looking bright but I can’t do it alone. So please do reach out if you would like to work with me to support our goals.
