Your response has been incredible. Since we launched this afternoon at 1pm we’ve had close to 3,000 visitors to the site and have taken many orders across the southern region. We’ve been in touch with lots of other producers from many other sectors wanting to join forces. This includes dairies, creameries, fruit & veg, butchers and breweries. This is just the start of what we want to do and what we have so far is just the tip of the iceberg (lettuce will follow…promise) and we’ll continue to develop the Loaf & Larder range over the coming hours, days, weeks and months.
Alas, and in line with government instructions, this evening we’ve closed the café side of both The Potting Shed and our HQ Deli but both remain wide open to supply everything you see on this site and more. Olives Et Al HQ in Sturminster is transforming itself into a Production Kitchen and, as a business, we have offered to take on the manufacture of much needed ventilators. Meanwhile, the Potting Shed will transform overnight to become another Production Kitchen to generate takeaway fresh, chilled and frozen offerings catering to the local and regional populations as well as serving as another retail hub for collections and deliveries.
We’re working throughout the weekend and if you need to get hold of us to discuss any aspect of what we’re doing, planning and provisioning for then feel free to call Giles ( 07970 163 558) or Mark (07710 230 980).
We’re here for you and we thank you kindly for your wonderful support and interest.
To update a phrase: Keep Your Gin Up and let’s hope we see each other soon…
