November progress update

With under three months to go until opening, work on Smallford Farm Shop is progressing quickly with internal walls, mezzanine and ceilings constructed and plastered, heating and ventilation systems in place and first fixings installed for refrigeration, electrical and data points. Alongside the work on the interior of the farm shop, the car park and paving are now complete, with over 30 spaces dedicated to our customers. Further landscaping work will be carried out in January with the planting of low level shrubs and flowers.

Throughout November, there have been meetings with suppliers, interviews for various roles within the farm shop and café, completion of the website, and finalised designs for advertisements in local magazines.

December will see the installation of the kitchen, toilets, serve over counters, lighting and shelving. Signage on the front of the farm shop will be constructed too. The menu will continue to be developed in December, with several dishes available to be inspired by the fresh produce available on site.
