As we watch COVID-19 unfold around the world and in NZ we are hoping for the best but planning for the worst.
We will remain open throughout. Please take note of the following measures:
We are implementing a "one person at a time" policy in the milk shop effective immediately. Please wait outside at a distance or in your car until the previous customer has finished. There is hand sanitiser available to be used before and after touching the machines. We have increased our sanitisation schedule for all customer contact areas.
We're ramping up our home delivery capabilities and encourage you to take advantage of this service. We currently have milk, veges, honey, avocados, bread. Other products coming soon eg. fish, meat and more.
We now use hand sanitiser in between each delivery. You know we love to say hi and have a chat when we can but we ask that, for the time being, we deliver the milk from a distance. Have your bottles cleaned at in the designated place to be picked up. Our delivery person is to have no close contact with any customers.
On that note, we are waiving the delivery fee for the elderly who are feeling vulnerable and not wanting to venture out. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Logan on 0211124393 to arrange.
Please remember that food safety guidelines mean that anyone with a cold, flu or bug isn't involved in the harvesting, bottling, or delivery of milk. This applies at all times, not just the present situation.
Finally, we're wanting to support local small producers and growers as much as possible. As cafe and restaurant sales will decline and social distancing is put into practice they still have product to sell. Please get online and order their products for home delivery. We're reducing the Farm Fresh Markets commission by 33% from next week. We hope that this helps a little and also encourages more suppliers to jump on board and give customers more options and value for home delivery. If you're a local supplier and want to have your products available through Farm Fresh Markets please contact Logan.
Let's all do our part together.
Logan, Melissa and the Farm Fresh South Team
