On a dairy farm, you have to feed the livestock, bed them down and milk the cows every day. Regardless of what else is going on in the world, the welfare of your animals must come first. We are living in strange times and many workplaces are closing their doors but our wonderful team here is working on. Some have had to self-isolate because either they or members of their households have colds or coughs and so the remaining team are stepping up.
The cheeses have to be turned and brushed on a daily basis and then dispatched promptly when ready. It’s not a question of life and death as it is with the cows, heifers and calves but it’s essential if we don’t want our ripening cheeses to ruin.
The cheese shop at Park Farm could close and we could stop attending farmers markets. However, we have decided to keep the shop and market stalls open while at the same time introducing a home delivery service for self-isolating households in the area. We want to continue to supply the local community with food and have put in place additional measures to ensure customers and staff are kept safe and healthy.
We are respectfully asking customers to stay away and self-isolate if they or anyone else in their household has a high temperature, cough and/or cold.
The new home delivery service for any villagers who are self-isolating has been very well received. As well as cheese, milk, eggs, bread, veg, we’re offering a range of food cooked on-site including sausage rolls, mac n cheese, soup and scones. We are all hoping and praying that things will get back to normal soon.
