Christmas Frequently Asked Questions
An important note about Christmas orders in light of Covid.
These are deeply uncertain times for everyone, and we understand that you may wish to tweak your Christmas order as events unfold. However, this year we will not be able to cancel or reduce any orders due for delivery after 1st December.
We know this is unprecedented, but it will ensure we can find a home for all of the livestock that has been so carefully reared by ourselves and our network of small-scale family farms and allow our staff to prepare your order safely. You are of course welcome to add to your order (stock depending) up to 7 days before your delivery is due.
We know everyone is longing for a beautiful Christmas to help us through what looks to be a tricky winter, and we wish you the happiest of gatherings, big or small. It will still be Christmas no matter what.
We will do everything we can to make this Christmas as magical as ever.
Due to the high demand of emails and telephone calls we receive at this time of year, there may be a small delay in receiving a response to your enquiry. We are continuing to do our best to get back to you as soon as possible and we endeavour to reply to every enquiry within 48 hours.
