They were planning a birthday party on 12 June, but Covid-19 made that impossible. Instead customers, friends, suppliers and colleagues, were invited to drop by the shop for a slice of Sarah's stunning homemade birthday cake.
The farm shop has been open during the pandemic, continuing to offer a wide range of fresh produce from the deli counter as well as bread, eggs, fruit and vegetables, including Beechwood's own range of jams, preserves and chutney. Additionally, Toby and Sarah introduced daily deliveries at the start of lockdown with many food staples and long-life products.
Beechwood Fine Foods first opened on 11 June 2010 and rapidly established itself within the community. In addition to selling the best of local and British produce, homemade cakes and Fairtrade coffee, the shop has been the box office for the David Evans Court Theatre for many years and, most recently, for Tring Cinema.
"Sarah and I wanted to create an independent shop with a unique and friendly atmosphere for those people looking for more than just the off-the-shelf, pre-packaged and mass-produced products," said Toby. "We can guarantee the provenance of all of the products that we sell, whilst minimising our environmental footprint by sourcing locally wherever possible."
Sarah commenced her own homemade range of homemade jams, preserves and chutneys 'Beechwood Country Preserves' in 2012 and has won many accolades including the prestigious Great Taste Awards. Her Old Doverhouse Chutney, Boozy Berry Jam, Victoria Plum Jam, Gooseberry and Elderflower Jam, Sarah's Traditional Fruit Chutney, Apricot Jam, Cranberry and Redcurrant Sauce, Poachers Pickle, Dark and Chunky Marmalade, have all won gold stars and feature the 'Great Taste' logo.
Toby also manages all of the off-site activity, participating in a variety of outdoor events including the County Shows. He has been a judge at the World Cheese Awards many times and is Chairman of the local community charity – Tring Together.
Toby concluded, "It is thanks to the support and friendship of so many that Beechwoods is firmly on the map and here to stay. We love what we do and those we share it with!
"We look forward to being of service to Tring and the surrounding villages for many years to come!"
During lockdown, customers can visit the shop weekdays from 8am to 3pm, Saturday 8.30am to 3pm and Sunday 10.30am to 12.30pm. Deliveries are offered Monday, Wednesday and Friday within Tring and the villages, with no minimum spend or delivery charge.
