Can I change my order date or cancel my order?
We need at least 7 days notice before the despatch date, to
amend or cancel any orders. This may be subject to delivery
charges, depending on when you would like to move your order to.
These restrictions are due to the volume of orders we are
processing and availability of produce, as well as to protect our
local independent farmers & butchers, who work around the clock
to deliver fresh meat to all our customers for Christmas and often
rear and then cut fresh to order.
When is the latest I can place my order?
We plan to keep the Christmas shop open until as late as
possible to cater for any last minute orders, for deliveries up
until the 23rd of December. However if we run out of delivery slots
and stock we may close the shop early. We recommend placing your
order as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment.
Is your meat fresh?
All our Christmas meat is delivered fresh excluding products
containing pastry which are freshly produced and sent directly to
you from our freezer.
Can I add to my order?
Yes, you can, as long as you leave us enough notice before your
despatch date! You can get in touch with customer care at
[email protected] or call 01765 824050, or if you're on your
mobile, you can click the WhatsApp icon to chat.
How will my order be delivered and can I track delivery?
Your order will be delivered by our trusted and carbon neutral
courier DPD. You will receive DPD notifications on the day of
delivery with your 1 hour allocated time slot. You can also log in
to the DPD app or website to track your order.
Are your products free-range?
All of our Christmas centrepieces are free range. Please click
into each product to find out more about how we rear our herds and
flocks, and how the meat was prepared.
There are a few black feather quills in my turkey, is this
Please do not worry, this is completely normal with our turkeys.
The feathers are a sign of a truly artisanal bird that has been
hand finished using a wax plucked process as opposed to a mass
production, wet pluck process. This gives you a much better quality
bird. The white turkeys that you will find at the supermarket has
just as many but because they have a white pigment you cannot see
They are harmless and most of any that may be left will shrivel
up during cooking. As we hand pluck it is impossible to remove each
and every one, please don`t ruin your Christmas day with tweezers
trying to remove them!
My turkey gravy is slightly discoloured?
You might notice a slight green tinge to our festive turkey
gravy. This varies from batch to batch and is by virtue of the fact
we use only natural whole vegetable ingredients to make our gravy.
The natural particles of the vegetables colour the gravy. As long
as the packet is within date, this is perfectly safe to eat!
What is extra matured beef?
We dry age all of the beef centrepieces in our Christmas range
for a minimum of 32 days. Extra matured refers to a longer period
of ageing, for example, 45 or 60 days, a process which requires
more resources but results in deeper flavour and greater
tenderness. You can learn more about dry aged beef here.
What is the shelf life on my meat?
Each product is listed with a minimum shelf life. Please click
into each product to note the listed shelf life - please keep this
in mind when placing your order! Always refer to the use by or best
before date that is shown on the product packaging.
All of our Christmas range delivered on 19th Dec to 23rd Dec is
guaranteed to stay fresh until Boxing Day *except products
containing pastry which are pre frozen. 48 hour deliveries
(Highlands & Islands) may have a shorter life depending on
I've just received my order but some items are missing?

missing, do contact our Customer Care team and we will look into it
