Farm Shop and Play Area

As we close out our first week of trading, giving huge thanks to all those people that have come to see us this week, we now look ahead to the opening of our Farm Shop and Children’s play area.

It’s been an interesting, exciting and at times nerve-wracking week but the Potting Shed team have done a great job in getting the wheels turning and starting to develop an operational model that works well for our customers. We are sorry if things aren’t yet perfect, but as previously stated it will take us a few weeks to get fully polished and slick with our order taking and food delivery. It seems that we’ve done most things pretty well this week, but we know where the areas of improvement lie. Please bear with us – we’re growing and getting better as each day goes by.

Our focus is now expanding to include an outdoor Children’s play area (to the right of the Cafe) plus the opening of the Farm Shop. The play area is currently being levelled and the fence man comes to have a look at what needs to be done tomorrow – we’re thinking electric fence and razor wire… (joke). We’re then putting a membrane down to stop the weeds coming through and covering with lashings of wood chippings, so if (and when) the little ones fall over they’ll bounce right back up again!

The Farm Shop is a cause for great excitement amongst The Potting Shed team. We’re having lots of fun dealing with a great network of local and British suppliers, creating a retail proposition which we hope you will love. We’ll be name-checking our brilliant suppliers to you very soon and confirming what will be on offer within the next week or so. The one key dependency here is BT – if they ever awake from their slumber and come and fit the line they’ve been promising for the last few months then we can install the credit card terminal, fill the shelves and we’re off and running! Watch this space for updates.

We are so grateful for the support we’ve received to date from all of you – thank you very much. We hope that we continue to meet your expectations, and perhaps exceed them, and you keep coming back to see us.

Big love from all of us to all of you! 🙂
