As the world adapts to the new realities of social distancing thoseof us in agriculture have a unique perspective. Appart from those in healthcare, we are perhaps the ones most framiliar with everyday biosecurity protocals as we strive to give the pest possible care to our livestock. An increasing number of farms have biosecurity sinage and restricted entry areas to prevent disease spread. And in times of outbreaks there are extra measures we have to take. We’ve been through this before, granted not for ourselves, but our animals. We also have always taken food safty seriously, so it is nothing truly new to us, but at the same time this is different. So, much as we would in times of hightend risk for livestock health we are taking some measures above the normal to protect both our health and yours.
Both of our markets are currently closed. The decision wasn’t ours, but we strongly agree with the wisdom of the decision. So for all our toronto customers we have a new socialy distanced customer service approach. We have an online store so you can shop and pay for our products online, and then pick up on Saturday morning close to the normal location of the Stops market without either of us ever handling cash. We offer the same option here at the farm with more pickup flexability or you can shop our self serve fridge six days a week. You can click the link ‘Shop online’ at the top of the page to visit our store. We are also trying to sanitize contact surfaces more frequently and have hand sanitizer on hand next tothe fridge.
For more information about the farm, read the About Us page.
We attend two markets each week year round. We are at Montgomery’s Inn in Etobicoke Wednesday afternoons from 2–6, and the Stop's Farmer's market on Saturday mornings from 7–1. Our products are also available year-round at the farm.
