Boy, have we faced some interesting times over the past 29 years. Fires, floods, tough economies, power outages—you name it, we’ve seen it all. We appreciate you hanging in there with us and truly making Farmers’ what it has become today.
Now we are all faced with a new twist, and it raises all sorts of feelings, from concern and uncertainty to outright panic. And during times like these we are always amazed at how our Farmers’ family rallies together in a spirit of optimism and goodwill. We feel so fortunate to live and work in such caring and supportive communities—both in Woodstock and in our new home in Waterbury.
We take our responsibility of being good stewards in our communities very seriously. And with the ongoing coronavirus news, we are firmly committed to being here for you—being the community place to come take a break, smile and laugh with your neighbors, have a coffee, eat great food, listen to the tunes, and feel safe. Honestly, it’s the least we can do during tough times.
Most importantly, although we’ve always prided ourselves in our high cleanliness standards, we’re taking extra precautions to maintain a safe place for you and our staff to shop and spend time. You can expect to see and experience our deep concern around health and food safety at both of our store locations. We’ve increased the frequency of our cleanings, have added hand sanitizers throughout our stores, and are taking a break from sampling for the time being. And while we appreciate your efforts to be more environmentally conscious, for now we’re no longer using customer cups and dishes for hot and cold items. We’re also keeping our staff informed on best practices and encouraging anyone who is feeling unwell to stay home.
We’ll continue to stay abreast of the situation and follow guidance from the CDC and Vermont Department of Health. If you have questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with one of our department leaders. Thank you for being part of our Farmers’ family.
