COVID-19 updates: Our on-farm shop is now CLOSED

This page is where we will keep you informed of the steps we are taking on Castle Farm and at The Hop Shop amidst the current COVID-19 situation. The health and wellbeing of our customers and our team is our top priority. 

**UPDATED Wednesday 22nd April 2020**

It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to cancel our Lavender Aromatherapy Massage event for 2020. For more information – click here.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Castle Farm is currently closed. Given the current situation, we are unsure as to how social distancing, and lockdown restrictions will affect the 2020 Lavender Season come June and July.

As such, please stay in touch, and follow updates on our social media or Newsletter to find out once we know more.

One thing we know for sure is that the fields will bloom beautifully and the relaxing aroma of Lavender will fill the valley once again. In the meantime, while the farm remains closed, you can get your Castle Farm fix through our online shop.

** UPDATED Tuesday 24th March 2020**

THE HOP SHOP at Castle Farm is now closed.

We would like to thank all our hard working team, and wonderful customers for all their support over the past couple of weeks during the rise of the devastating Covid-19 pandemic. However, as a response to the most recent government advice we have made the difficult decision to close our on-farm shop until further notice. We hope to keep our online shop open, for the time being.

Here at Castle Farm, we will be working hard to ensure we can do what farmers do best…. grow food! Farmers are used to dealing with the problems of the daily variables of the weather, but the current pandemic will challenge us to the limit, and we need to concentrate all our resources to ensure that the farm remains productive and operational.

We have already heard from many people how important our Lavender and Sleep ranges have become in a time of such high anxiety and stress, so we hope to keep our online shop open as long as possible. Will be reviewing and updating our online product availability, so keep checking, or let us know by email if there is something specific you are after. Please stay in touch via our our Newsletter or following us on instagram, facebook and website to keep updated in case this changes.

We would like to extend a big thank you to all our customers for your encouragement and positive feedback, over the past few weeks, which means a lot to us. We always love hearing from you and we know how much Castle Farm means to you all.

Thank you for your understanding.
Stay healthy, stay positive.

The Alexander family and all at Castle Farm and The Hop Shop
