2020 has been a difficult year for everybody. The Trill Farm enterprises have had to change their business models to cope with coronavirus restrictions. Fortunately, they have risen to the challenge and are delivering their produce locally. This is continuing following the sale of Trill Farm.

Ash, Kate, Ellen and the trainees in Trill Farm Garden usually supply 3.5 tonnes of salad (plus a whole range of other seasonal organic vegetables) to local cafes and restaurants within 5-10 miles of the farm, but as all their usual buyers have had to close their doors, they rapidly changed both their cropping and business plans in March to distribute veg boxes locally. Their new veg box scheme had over 150 customers sign up in just 3 days, a testament to their incredibly high reputation and hard work. They have some additional capacity for local deliveries; please visit their website for more information.

The Old Dairy Kitchen usually caters for all the courses and events at the farm, as well as running weekly farm lunches, hosting feast nights and teaching cookery skills. With no visitors allowed to the farm, Chris, Anna and the ODK team are bringing the restaurant to local homes instead, offering meal deliveries and collections fortnightly on Fridays. As well as meals and feasts, they are selling high quality produce from our local farms and friends, including Haye Farm meat, Ash and Kate's salad and veg, Three Daughter's Dairy goats cheese, and fresh flowers from Meadowsweet Floristry. The produce available changes each week - visit their online pantry for more information and to order.

Thomas is still brewing his award-winning mead, and selling mead and mead courses online. Check out his website for more information.

Finally, our online farm shop is moving. We are still taking orders, which will be dispatched at the beginning of November, with orders then posted out once a week. We still have plenty of our handmade soaps available, so you can keep calm and keep washing your hands. Visit the shop here.
