Farming has for the most part carried on as usual during lockdown, but diversified business like cafes and activity centres have been restricted and will now be looking to reopening as we progress through phase 2.
Farm shops have been able to open as an essential service throughout and many have worked so hard to provide communities with fresh local produce. My own household has never eaten so well as we have during lockdown, receiving deliveries from local butchers as well as the online farmer’s market. Some farm cafes have set up takeaway and delivery services during lockdown and will soon be able to start on the steps to reopening for outdoor then indoor service.
One positive that has come from lockdown is the renewed interest in food quality and provenance. Long may this continue as we appreciate the service our national food suppliers provide and the quality of the produce available.
