It is with great relief that we have been allowed to open once more to the public. However, due to the on going pandemic, there are many measures that we have had to implement.
For the well being of staff and customers, we respectfully ask that you pay by card and contactless wherever possible.
Limiting numbers on the farm
We are not running a pre-booking service. Although we doubt that we shall be lucky enough to get that busy, should we reach the limit of the number of families allowed on the farm at any one time to comply with social distancing, we shall need to ask visitors to queue outside, maintaining social distance. We are not doing advanced booking and so in exceptional circumstances we will be implementing a one family out, one family in policy.
Social distancing in the farm itself
Although it is no longer a legal requirement, we ask that you continue to keep a reasonable distance between yourselves and others that are not part of your group to reduce the risk of spreading COVID 19
The Pets' Corner
The Pets' Corner is open and we would prefer that facemasks are worn inside (unless you are exempt). We also recommend that you bring your own blanket or towel for animal handling as the blankets that we provide are not washed between each person.
And perhaps most importantly...HAND WASHING!!!
At this time, hand washing has never seemed more important! We have hand sanitizer located around the farm which we ask you to make use of. But this is no substitute for washing your hands! It is always important to maintain good hygiene in a farm environment, but please take extra care to keep hands away from faces (especially in the case of children) and WASH YOUR HANDS properly at the wash station on exit.
NO FOOD OR DRINK IS TO BE CONSUMED ON THE FARM
These restrictions and measures have been put in place for the well being of our staff, volunteers and, of course, our visitors. We ask that you please respect these and social distancing when visiting the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm. We are over the moon to be allowed to open again after such a long period of uncertainty. But we can only remain so with your help and cooperation. We understand that we may not be able to provide the full experience you may be used to, but hope that you will have a wonderful time with us all the same. We are all looking ahead to when restrictions can finally be lifted and the world seems a more 'normal' place once more. In the meantime; stay well, stay safe and we hope to see you all soon!
