The farm shop only closes for three days every year (Chrsitmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year's Day), so we have to take the opportunity to give it a good clean and tidy (last year we painted the floor too). Virginia and Ilaria spent all day yesterday doing this, and we were open again at 10am this morning as usual, ready to go through until next Christmas without a day off.

The shop will now be open from 10am till 6pm every day, and we have removed the gate-stall. The new entrance is also fully operational, with new signage, and we ask all shop customers to use it because it is much safer than the old farm entrance.
