The Barn is now open!

The Barn is now home for our farm kitchen. If we’ve learned one thing this year it is to stay nimble and not plan too far ahead! However, we knew that returning to the previous cafe space wasn’t an option as it just isn’t suitable to keep everyone distanced and safe and would have also impacted our farm shop space. 

It’s been an all-hands-on-deck approach and with the help of a few friends and some brilliant local builders, carpenters, electricians and of course our own amazing team we’ve created a space we are so proud of. As the name suggests, it is very much a barn and we’ve done as much as we can to keep the weather at bay, but wrap up warm and join us for breakfast, lunch, coffee, tea and cake in our new home for the farm kitchen, for now!

Christmas is very much on the horizon! For those of you who have visited us on the run-up to Christmas, you will know how busy it can get and once again, we have to make plans to ensure we queues and congestion as best we can. This year, our new online store will be the go-to place for your Christmas orders. We will have our entire Christmas range including local free-range bronze turkeys, our own grass-fed Hereford beef, home-grown and local veggies and of course homemade treats from our kitchen such as our mince pies. You can order all of this alongside our normal online range soon until mid-December. However, we are expecting demand to be high due to the current restrictions, so order as we may sell out before then. You can then arrange a collection from the farm or a local delivery slot on the days before Christmas Day. We hope you understand why we have had to change things this year and move to orders to our online shop. If online shopping is not possible for you, do give us a call on 01225 864948 and we can certainly find a way to make sure you don’t miss out. We are excited about delivering a delicious, local, Hartley Farm Christmas but also in the safest way possible where you can avoid the crowds and pick up your food order for the festive season as quickly and efficiently as possible!
