COVID-19 Update - 27/03/20

We would like to thank all our members, staff, customers and suppliers for working with us through this past week. It has been challenging for many of us, however we have been inspired by the collective effort in our community to work together and unite against COVID-19.

We want to stay open and support your farming business with essential items, and we are also prioritising our people’s welfare to ensure they are able to spend time with their loved ones through this process. We have decided to reduce our hours accordingly.

If you need to visit any of our stores, our new hours are now:

Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm
Saturday – All stores are closed

Please take time out this weekend to spend with your ‘bubble’ of loved ones at home. Now is a time for us to take care of each other and those most vulnerable in our community. Let’s all consider those who might be alone at this time, who may appreciate a phone call or video call over the weekend.

For the latest information on how to interact with us during Covid-19 please visit our website or call the team on 0800 787 256.
