Keeping it local, keeping it safe and keeping it together over lockdown.
While supermarket shopping includes car park controls, queuing out of the door, jam packed tills, price hikes!!! and bare shelves with social distancing impossible to control when people are whipping up and down the aisles –
I thought I’d try some of my local farm shops – they are taking extra measures to offer all those kitchen ingredient extras plus they already have an abundance of seasonal fruit and veggies, farm meats, local Norfolk produce and the freshest of eggs.
No ques – not many people – buying local and supporting the community – what’s not to love, especially when you come home with local artisan bread, freshly made cakes, rich orange yolky eggs, seasonal produce like fresh Norfolk asparagus, carrots that taste of carrots and some local jars of saucy jammy goodness – did I mention the Gin!
So here is my list of all the local farm shop’s in Norfolk most of them offering local delivery.
(please message me info on any more and I’ll add them in)
