CUSTOMER NOTICE - Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Please Note the Garden Centre and Sundries Store are CLOSED for the sale of any goods or products
THE FARM SHOP REMAINS OPEN for ESSENTIAL FOOD ONLY
ONE CUSTOMER PER VISIT
With regret, we are unable to process any further orders. The volume of orders we received yesterday morning took till 19:00 hrs to complete even with the shop shut and all staff picking and packing. We simply do not have the Staff, Storage or Working Space to facilitate picking orders and consider the best way we can serve the community is to manage customers through our till heads on a controlled queue system of 1 in 1 out basis.
When shopping for food essentials, please be considerate to others and queue 2 meters apart until invited to enter the shop.
We are limiting the number of customers in the Farm Shop at any one time and allow only shopper per visit, please do not to visit with children, family and friends as they will be turned away or ask to stay in your car. We are operating a ONE in ONE out queue system. Please adhere to the Government’s social distancing policy.
These are unprecedented circumstances and all our staff are being asked to come to work every day while so many others are being asked to stay at home. We all need them to keep coming to work to help feed the community – a small thank you goes a long way.
Thank you for your continued custom and support during these testing times.
Darren and David Dadswell.

After the first cut, mow once a week (depending on weather), gradually lowering blades until the desired level is met.
