Build your own Cornish Christmas Hamper 2021 Update

Posted on: 27th November 2021

We have 31 days until Christmas, and what a different place it is going to be this year.

Some of our suppliers particularly of wine have run out of stock.

We have changed some of our hampers to reflect this, and will offer what we can without the quality being changed.

We have lots of new products as well, with Buttermilk Dairy Free Hot Chocolate Bombes, and Rosemullion Christmas Crackers proving a hit.

Our Build your own Cornish Christmas hamper has proved a success both online and in the shop.

Build your own means,

  • choose the products for your hamper,
  • choose the hamper or gift box you wish to send it in
  • choose delivery or click and collect   

Lets look forward to Christmas 2021 different but equally enjoyable.

On Wednesday 27 October 2021 the Halzephron Herb Farm Shop will have returned to Falmouth for ten years.

Helen and Michael McDonald established the shop here and the product range has continued to grow over the years from a small branded shop into a business supporting more people. 

We operate both online and in a brick and mortar premises. We are always looking to expand our offering of Build Your Own Cornish Hamper range, on line as well as in the shop.

We are aware of some shortages in some of our offerings this Christmas, but have amended our hampers and revamped our photographs.

We have 97 days until Christmas, and what a different place it is going to be this year.

The success of the county of Cornwall this year as a venue has meant we face a Christmas with a shortage in supply of a few  products.

We have changed some of our hampers to reflect this, and will offer what we can without the quality being changed.

We have continued to offer ready assembled hampers, but also we are offering a build your own option.

Build your own means,

  • choose the products for your hamper,

March 2021

Posted on: 25th March 2021

The announcement of the roadmap out of Lockdown meant that both Mothering Sunday and Easter were likely to be missed events , but after a conversation with the grants department at Cornwall Council we were convinced to re-open.

The lockdown process has allowed us to reflect on where we were, and where we wanted to go in terms of the business.

We contacted some new suppliers using Instagram to get new products in, so welcome Cornish Pasta, Langley’s Chocolate, Rebel Sauces.

We have had some repairs done in the shop, to the door and windowsill. 

 

Lockdown 2.0

Posted on: 9th November 2020

Well here we are in our second lockdown of 2020, but this time we have remained open.

We are offering a click and collect service from the shop, local delivery and national delivery through our courier.

Hamper orders are starting to come in and we are expecting more before the start of December .

 

Catch Up Before Christmas

So having closed the shop at the end of March, apart from fulfilling online orders and local deliveries, we reopened in May firstly just at the weekend.

The summer months have seen quite a steady trade, with people escaping crowds at some points for the tranquility of the shop. 

Being closed for periods of the year has not meant that we stopped our search for new products, or new suppliers coming to us.

We now have a supplier of sea glass jewellery as well as further handmade storage items.

Welcome to 2020

Jackie and Robert Gibbon have been in the shop for nearly a year now. We have enjoyed meeting lots of new people and suppliers, but also trying to expand on the great range of Cornish products. We started on 2nd of February 2019 the last day of trading for Marks and Spencer. We are currently updating our on line site and hoping to try and create a click and collect scheme.
