Happy New Year! After another busy Christmas tree season we are refocusing our energies on the farm shop build, which is coming on well, and are hoping to open late February/early March, fingers crossed!
We are busy finalising job specs and will be advertising for staff in the next few weeks – keep an eye out here and on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/theheronfarmshop. We are creating several new jobs and want to recruit enthusiastic, friendly staff from the local area.
Also key just now is to finalise suppliers of quality local produce. We have spent the last 2 years going to artisan food fairs and speciality shows, and meeting up and talking to producers. We are still being surprised to find more producers local to us; just a couple of weeks ago we delivered a Christmas tree to an artisan baker in nearby Stonehouse and hope to sell their cake pops.
If you produce food or goods you think would fit with our ethos of quality, Scottish products and would be of interest to us, please get in touch via our contact page.
