Harefield Farm Shop, Leeds

Harefield Farm Shop, Leeds serves customers with locally sourced meat and produce direct from their own farm shop. Due to the demand, particularly on weekends from local customers queuing owner Richard Gibson was conscious of people standing outside the shop exposed to typical Yorkshire weather conditions whilst waiting their turn. Richard commented, “We needed something to protect and shield our customers from the elements, we want them to keep coming back to our Farm Shop not only for the excellent meat and produce, but also for the service and experience a local business like ours can offer.” 

The Tarpaulin Co. set to work to produce a bespoke shelter to accommodate Richard’s requirements. Using 900GSM PVC Vinyl tarpaulin in red and cream to provide the outline with clear window panelling in the middle sections to bring light into the shelter. It was designed with one side having the option to be rolled up in warmer weather and the main frontage split into two curtains complete with steel tracking enabling the customer to adjust daily.

Richard added, “The Tarpaulin Co. had built us our very first shelter many years ago when we worked out of a refrigeration unit. We were very impressed by the level of service from Mark and his team, their attention to detail in understanding our requirements was excellent. It was a no brainer in contacting them again for a new shelter on the side of our permanent brick built farm shop.”
