Meat has been flying off shelves all over the country and the butchers at Kev’s Country Meats in Harvey have been tirelessly working around the clock in order to keep up with the demand.

Candis Gordon said her team was forced to change the way they operated because of the coronavirus crisis.

“We are staying safe and are taking precautions,” Mrs Gordon said.

Mrs Gordon said she was working seven days a week to keep up with the demand.

They had a one customer at a time policy to prevent the spread of the deadly virus and have since decided to only serve pickup orders through the back drive-thru.

“The less contact we have, the longer we can stay open.”

The team was also offering a local delivery service option where possible.

“We are doing non-contact deliveries and urge people to call ahead,” she said.

Mrs Gordon said she believed people from as far as Perth had trekked to Harvey to get their hands on the in-demand meat.

However, she ensured locals would be looked after first.
