COVID-19 UPDATE – 16TH JAN 2021
Happy New Year to all of our wonderful customers! We hope that you are all keeping well and we can’t wait to welcome you back to our café, once safe to do so.  In the meantime, we’ve reviewed the latest guidance for retail and hospitality – updated after the First Minister’s latest announcement on January 13th – and have updated our COVID risk assessment.  We’re continuing with our thorough COVID safety and hygiene measures to ensure that we keep our customers and team safe.
Our farm shop continues to stay open 7 days a week, 9am – 5pm and it’s well stocked with meats, cheeses, bread, eggs, milk and other store cupboard essentials….as well as sweet and savoury treats!  If, however, you are unable to visit, don’t worry as there are other ways to shop with us: online, phone the team on 01357 440147 or email us at order@theheronfarmshop.com.
We’ve been busy updating our online shop with lots of new Heron favourites for you to try at home, including our yummy range of Heron homebaked cakes, our homemade frozen meals, wines, beers and spirits, and gift items/greetings cards.
Visit our online shop
Orders placed via our online shop are a wishlist where we will check stock, then phone you back to confirm your order and take payment. We can deliver free of charge for orders over £35 and can deliver outwith Strathaven on set days (East Kilbride, Hamilton, Eaglesham, Newton Mearns and Clarkston). Click and collect is also available where we can bring your shopping straight to your car for a contactless delivery into your boot.
We’re also providing a takeaway service of Heron coffee, tea, hot chocolate, Heron homebaked cakes, all day breakfast rolls and soup, 7 days from 9am-4pm.
For those customers who are takeaway only, a member of the Heron team will quickly and safely take your order and payment at the door and then ask you to pick up your order at the side of the building, under our covered area. For those unable to do so, we will happily deliver to your car. For those shopping who also want takeaway, simply add your order when paying for your shopping at the till; again pick up will be at the side of the building.
We thank you for your continued understanding, patience and support during another challenging time for so many local businesses and beyond.  By shopping with us, you are not only supporting us, but also the many small producers that we work with.  These famers/growers/artisan producers have worked tirelessly over the past 10 months to increase production but also still keep the amazing quality and provenance of their foods.
And don’t forget that we’ve recently opened our new 2 dog exercise areas next to the farm shop, which are deer-fenced and gated, for you to enjoy with your dog. You can book for 1 hour or 30 mins, for up to 6 dogs (£10/£5), which gives you and your dogs exclusive use of that run. Phone us on 01357 440147 to book your slot, and take advantage of our takeaway while you exercise your dogs!  Please note that current COVID-19 guidance applies.
