Frequently asked questions

Questions and Answers

How much is the delivery cost?


We charge £20 for up to 20kg to a single address on mainland UK (N. Ireland, IOW, Isle of Man and the Scottish Highlands are excluded). This is actually less than it costs us as we are a very small business and cannot benefit from large quantity discounts from the courier. We send orders in insulated poly boxes with ice packs. Each extra 20kg to the same address is £10. If you live in any of the excluded areas, please contact us before you make an order to see if we can arrange anything acceptable.




What does organic mean?


Organic production recognises the link between environment, health and the food we eat. In organic farming use of chemical sprays and artificial fertilizers is not allowed. Animal cruelty is prohibited and farm animals are guaranteed a truly free-range life. Farmers use preventative methods, like moving animals to fresh pasture and keeping smaller herd size to control pests and diseases. the production and use of GM in animal feed is banned We are certified organic by the Soil Association.




Can I collect my order?


Yes, by arrangement. For Christmas this year we hope collections will be between 9am and 4pm on 23rd December 2021, covid permitting! We may reinstate bookable time slots like we did last year if we have to. For orders at other times, collection is by arrangement, depending on availability and any lead times.




Is all your meat organic and produced on the farm?


Yes! We have a turkey breeding flock and hatch and rear all the birds we sell. We buy in day old chicks from slow growing organic approved strains to rear for our Christmas cockerels and chickens. The Fallow deer herd lives in the chicken field, we only produce fresh venison in the game season when a marksman will shoot them and they will be hung and butchered on the farm. Our sheep graze the clover-rich pasture and lambs are slaughtered in a small, local abattoir, then butchered on the farm. The small but growing outdoor pig enterprise 2-3 sows produce rare-breed pigs which are slaughtered locally and butchered on the farm.
