We know the worry and concern the Coronavirus is causing, and we are monitoring closely the Government Guidelines, which we appreciate are changing daily. We want to reassure our customers that we are doing everything we can to keep you, and all our team safe.
Blacker Hall Farm Remains OPEN. The Barn Café is now CLOSED until further notice.
We are actively taking measures in The Farm Shop to ensure the safe health and wellbeing of all our customers and teams. We are open for essential purchases, such as meat, fruit and vegetables and we aim to keep stocked up with our home-reared and homemade produce. Measures we are actively taking include hand sanitiser on entrance to The Farm Shop, limiting the number of people in The Farm Shop at any one time, we have tape on the floor around the till areas to show a safe distance to be standing and we are encouraging social distancing. Protection screens are also in place around the tills for both you and our team’s safety.
We would encourage anyone who needs provisions that our delivery service is at full capacity looking after those who need it the most, so if we can encourage anyone who is well enough to do so, please come to The Farm Shop.
Following the Government advice about closing social venues, we have taken the decision to close The Barn Café until further notice. The Farm Shop remains open, and our wonderful Café team have been deployed to other areas of the business, helping to support the Farm Shop as well as our new Local Home Delivery and Call & Collect services.
We have a 5* Food Hygiene Rating, and have taken the step further to make sure our team are increasing the frequency of hand washing, cleaning and disinfecting surfaces as well as trolley and basket handles. We have also increased the number of our team available on our tills to minimise queues and hand sanitisers are in place throughout the site, and encourage all customers to sanitise their hands upon entering and leaving Blacker Hall Farm.
Our Farm Shop remains fully stocked. From our Butchers, Bakery, Delicatessen, Food To Go, Wine, Fishmongers and Greengrocery counters, our supply chain is largely local, with over 80% of everything we sell made at Blacker Hall Farm, or home-reared on our own farm. We are not anticipating any shortages and we are working closely with our growers and farmers to ensure a safe and steady supply of fresh produce, to continue to supply you and our community during these difficult times.
