In response to the worldwide pandemic, Devon based Darts Farm is working closely with Exeter Foodbank to help create ‘Easter Tuck Boxes’ to give to people within their community that need it the most this Easter. Customers have donated and local food and drink producers have given produce with the aim to give as many families as possible an Easter treat. The ‘Easter Tuck Boxes’ include:
- Carrots, Apples, Bananas
- Moores Biscuits and Kernow Chocolate
- Good Game Salami
- Burts Chips
- Vicky’s Bread Hot Cross Buns
- Luscombe Drinks
- Cottage Delight Cake
- Brew Tea Bags
Michael Dart, Director of Darts Farm comments: “This is a difficult period for everyone but there are some families and individuals who are really suffering, we want to help and give them a treat this Easter. For those that are able to, we are inviting our local customers and wider community to make a small donation to this new ‘Easter Tuck box’ initiative”. He continues: “Many of our brilliant local artisan producers are also struggling with the closure of pubs, cafés and restaurants, therefore we’re extremely grateful to those who have donated their delicious surplus stock to this valuable cause. The more money we raise the more tuck boxes we can give!”
To donate, visit the Darts Farm website or donations can be made in-store and over the phone.
Within the past fortnight Darts Farm have introduced new meal solutions, vegetable, meat and fruit boxes and ‘Send Some Cheer’ hampers, all available for delivery across the UK.
Over the past 25 years Darts Farm has continually evolved to become one of the most exciting shopping experiences in the South West. Darts Farm remains a family business run by the Dart brothers; the retail looked after by Michael and James and the farm headed up by Paul. The business is, at its core, still a working farm, and sells all of its home-grown produce directly through the farm shop.
