Small farm shops are less stressful than Supermarkets .. have you got one locally?

I've found a great little farm shop, no panic buying but expensive.

Yes we've got a local farmshop that wasn't the least affected by panic buying until yesterday. I think word got round and people are now starting to come out from our nearest town, so the secret is out unfortunately.

They are trying to do their bit though by putting boxes together for those self-isolating and offering to deliver.

Farm shops do tend to be quite expensive but the quality is usually excellent n you get what you pay for mostly.

Our farm shop is also excellent. It has not got a cafe but at the weekend is always thriving and bursting to the seams.

Are you going to try visiting during lockdown? Sounds like it might be a positive experience and an antidote for any cabin fever.

Yes we are lucky to have a local Farmshop and they seem to be fully stocked and are also offering to deliver to those in our Community who can't get out. It is times like this that we should appreciate and support small local businesses 🙂
