Farm shop launches NHS Buy a Banger scheme

Kindness food parcels, lockdown snack boxes, and an NHS Buy a Banger Scheme are among lockdown initiatives launched by South Brockwells Farm at Little Horsted.

Sarah Robinson from the family-run farm, in Bradfords Lane, Little Horsted, says their aim is to help make customers lives a little easier during the lockdown.

Initiatives include:

Lockdown Food Parcels for two, four, or more, people are filled with home-grown produce, local and handmade goodies. The parcels are prepared for collection or delivered locally, or you can order your shopping and it can be prepared for you. You can choose from home produced meat, wild game, fresh seasonal veg, handmade pies, sausage rolls, and treacle tarts.

Stay at Home Snack Boxes. These are handmade snacks and healthy treats made by friends of the farm at Shepherds Kitchen to help you get through the school or work day, or just to treat yourself.

NHS Buy a Banger Scheme. This follows a successful Buy a Bundle of Asparagus scheme run last spring where customers bought asparagus to be delivered to local hospitals and the farm added 25%.

In the latest scheme a £5 donation will buy a pack of South Brockwells Farm free range pork sausages and the farm will add 25% to donations made and deliver a box of bangers to front line staff at local hospitals.

If you wish to donate simply add £5 to your shop and your name will be taken to include on a delivery note.

The shop continues to offer 10% off all items in the farm shop to NHS staff.

Buy a Banger is a scheme enabling delivery of sausages to NHS staff.

Kindness Food Parcels –  You can give a Kindness Food Parcel to a neighbour or friend in need or just to brighten their day for only £18.

The box of local produce includes a hand made pie, cake, bread, milk, free range eggs, veg, etc. Prepared for collection or delivered locally.

A Kindness Food Parcel put together at South Brockwells Farm for you to give to friends or neighbours for £18.
