Coronavirus Kent: Family-run Street Farm Dairy in High Halden burgled

Burglars have targeted a family run farm, making off with food for the self-isolated.

Street Farm Dairy in High Halden has been running for 30 years and delivering essentials to those in self-isolation since the beginning of the outbreak.

Having traded for 30 years, the company has now experienced its first break-in.

Taking place last night between 9pm and 11.30pm, unknown individuals entered the on-site storage and pilfered the entire supply of yoghurt, bread and juice.

The shortage has affected customers, who live as far afield as Sutton Valence and Ashford.

In a Facebook post, the family behind the service said: "We can't believe we are having to write this - but this evening all our bread and yoghurts were stolen.

"We are so, so sorry but anyone who was expecting our lovely locally baked bread and yoghurts wont be able to have them delivered tomorrow. You of course wont be charged for them.

"To all our new and existing customers, we really apologise and we'll restock these items as soon as we can.

"Most of these products were due to be delivered to those who are self-isolating."

The post has received a lot of public attention, and the owners have thanked the public "for the response and support from the community - it's been amazing."

Despite the minor setback, Street Farm Dairy continues to offer a food delivery service to existing and new customers.

If you would like to enquire about the products, the details of which can be found here, the family has asked to be contacted via email at enquiries@streetfarmdairy.co.uk
