Meat and Grocery Orders

Why queue at the butchers or supermarket when you can order all your Xmas meat from us and have it delivered to your door?

As part of our commitment to local produce and reducing food miles, we have decided to go to Lymington for our free range Turkeys this year (in previous years, they have come from Appledore in Kent). Geese are also available.

We take delivery on the afternoon of the 23rd and Merryl and Bob will then deliver them to you the same day! The supplier packs them in greaseproof and a polythene bag, but it will cost £2.oo extra for a cardboard box which they feel really isn’t necessary.

We get game and all other meat from Prices the butcher in Fordingbridge at no extra cost to you.

Don’t forget that we have delicious local white park beef from Hale Farm too.
