Firstly, I hope this finds you all safe and well. As life continues under lockdown, we feel extraordinarily grateful to be surrounded by fields and woodlands. We have always known the power of time in nature for our health and wellbeing, but now it seems more valuable than ever.

WE'LL BE CLOSED UNTIL THE END OF JUNE
As much as we would love to be able to share our bluebell woods, skipping lambs and delicious produce from the garden and kitchen with you in person, we are not currently allowed to, and furthermore, do not feel that it will be responsible to do so until at least the end of June.
 
Whilst there remain no cases of COVID-19 on the farm, we have a duty to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff, tenants and farm businesses, as well as all of our customers and the wider community.

WHAT NEXT?
We are working hard with our brilliant tutors to reschedule all walks, talks and courses planned for May and June. We are continually reviewing the situation with regard to July, but hope to have the farm fully open again from August. If you are booked on to a course, for a stay in the guesthouse or the campsite, we will be in touch with you as soon as possible if we have not done so already.
 
As you’ll be aware, the current restrictions are having a devastating effect on many sectors. We are doing all we can to ensure fairness and responsibility to our customers, our staff and our partners. 

Refunds and cancellations of our courses will be financially extremely difficult for all of us. We are sympathetic to everyone’s circumstances. If you are able to, we would ask you not to cancel but rather to wait and let us contact you to rebook when things settle.
 
WHAT ARE WE DOING NOW?
Our farm businesses are working hard to adapt. Our online farmshop is still open, selling our Trill Farm soaps, teas and Gotland blankets and rugs. Trill Farm Garden have set up a local veg box scheme, supplying households nearby instead of their usual cafes and restaurants, and Chris is running a pop-up Old Dairy Kitchen shop, delivering meals (as well as treats from other local producers, including our soap!) within a 5 mile radius and in Bridport. If you live nearby and would like more information, please visit the links above or below.
 
In the meantime, we intend to share some light from the farm in what can sometimes feel dark times. We'll be continuing to share the sights and sounds of springtime on our social media feeds (Facebook and Instagram), and emailing out samples of the courses and events that would be taking place here if we were open as usual. We hope you enjoy them.
 
Stay safe, well and connected,
Romy and the Trill Farm Team
