Farm supply store, only things I've ever seen for sale up here for farms is feed and such; most of the goods go directly from the supplier to the island's farm that requires it via the carrier and they'd order in bulk and have business accounts etc...but, I'll certainly keep my ears open just in case.


It's complicated here one minute we're part of the UK, the next we're not, depending on suppliers

We have a good deal of farms and no store that I know of, there was one but it closed about a decade ago, that's why I'm assuming they now go direct to the supplier.

I think, from what I gather with talking with shop staff, that the price of shipping puts most of them out of business because they cannot afford to ship the stuff and pass the added cost on to the consumer; as I found out with the weight plates.
