A huge pat on the back to Sam, Lee (Butchery), Gavin (Kitchen) and the team for ensuring that we maintain our 5 star rating with the Food Standards Agency following a full inspection today.  While this should be a given, it is one of the parts of our business that takes up a huge amount of time behind the scenes ensuring that not only is everything scrupulously clean, clearly labelled and dated, but that all the paperwork is complete, in order and demonstrates that hygiene standards are very good.

What the rating covers:

Ratings are a snapshot of the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection. It is the responsibility of the business to comply with food hygiene law at all times.

This includes:

  • handling of food
  • how food is stored
  • how food is prepared
  • cleanliness of facilities
  • how food safety is managed

  • Congratulations on continuing to keep the highest standards of Food Hygiene necessary for your customers to keep supporting this great farm shop. This does come with an amazing amount of effort and hours, but let it slip would take much more of these to get it back to the standard required.
    Keep up the good work , it will bring it’s rewards as has the Butchery in the past half of year, with much better choice of excellent meat on offer. To keep up with the Brexit scenario will be interesting and rewarding by backing the local producers which you are growing in numbers and receiving the results.
    May your number of shoppers grow in the same way.
