To help answer your questions

We commonly get asked the questions on this page. So we thought we would put them here so you don’t have to wait for an answer. If the answer is not here, then please get in touch, and we will reply to you as soon as possible.

COVID-19 policyWe are still operating the online business. We will only be despatching on Tuesdays and Thursdays to reduce the number of times we leave the premises.  We are home based and so we have access to all of our stock that is held separately from the house. This updates, until further notice, our standard terms and conditions.  We will not be baking, selling coffee or making fudge until further notice.  We will also not be open for coffee and cakes until further notice.  If you are local, and want to collect, please get in touch and we can arrange contactless collection from Rockfield.  We are restricting the number of some items that are being panic bought so there is enough for everyone. Some of our suppliers are still operating and so we will keep as stocked as we can. Thank you for your understanding, stay safe, Best wishes, Jane & Lee x

WHAT ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT?

how are you protecting the environment?

We are taking a journey with reducing our carbon footprint. We are far from where we would like to be. What we have in place currently is only working with ethical suppliers for our eco-friendly products. These suppliers are either at zero plastic already or working towards that. Some are carbon neutral. All of our products are carefully vetted by us to be as sustainable and plastic free. We do our best to use sustainable or recyled packaging. We recycle delivery boxes, or you might get one instead of using a new box. If we are sourcing products from abroad we do our best to make sure those making them are paid a fair wage. We buy as much as we can locally to support local artisans and suppliers. We are looking at which charity we can support that is applicable to the area we live and work in. We know there is much more we can do and we are working on that.
