Their post about the van being taken was shared thousands of times.
On Friday afternoon the van was recovered and had not been damaged.
Katie said: “We just wanted to say a massive thank you to all the people of Preston for sharing our post to help us get our van back.
“We deliver to a lot of local farm shops and garden centres so our van is very valuable to us and to locate it so quickly was a massive help to our business.”
