An update!

I just wanted to keep you all in the loop about rewards. If any of you follow me on Twitter you’ll have seen I’ve lost some of my land this week. So I am hastily looking for some more to be able to carry on. The piglets have been the issue, that and disappearing earth wires on my electric boxes, so they are tucked up in the barns again with a  massive straw bale to destroy and keep the, occupied.

I have 10 pigs going on their final journey on Monday, I’m aiming to use it to send you your rewards so on a first come first served basis most will be out with you week commencing the 20th July.  The bacon will take a bit longer as it has to cure and I like doing a proper job!! 

I’m using an overnight courier for the first time and a product called Wool Cool which is made from felted sheep’s wool that acts as a natural insulator. I pack with ice bubble sheets and having tried it on myself it should reach you in perfect condition ready to enjoy or freeze.

I really do hope you like the pork. Its really good stuff.

All the best for now,
