Where on earth has this summer gone? Before we even really noticed it the latest intake went from pint-size to portly, and so our thoughts now turn to the end-point of the process… a trip in the trusty charabanger to our friends in Ashburton.
This said, we still have a little time to go – the pigs are booked-in to the abattoir mid-September, and so there are plenty of fresh veggies from the garden and a whole load of post-repastal belly rubs yet to come for them; however, we do need to get ourselves a little more organised and work out where our next batch of super-exclusive, highly sought-after pork boxes will be heading.
We’ll be despatching these guys a little earlier than usual on the advice of our butchery chums Cox & Laflin – a minor tweak which should further improve the overall fat to meat balance. Sadly though, this does mean that supplies of the finished product will be even more limited than usual so, if you’re interested in securing yourself a box full of porky loveliness, please let us know as soon as possible.
The sums are still being scribbled on the back of an old envelope but the recent (almost inevitable) rises in organic feed costs mean that we’re likely to be charging £10 a kilo this time around – a wee bit more than last year’s boxes but still considerably less than even the most uninspiring samples of supermarket-sourced free-range, organic pork.
Boxes range in capacity from 5kg to 20kg and are packed-full of freshly butchered chops, diced meat, ribs, joints and sausages. Orders are taken on a strictly first-come-first-served basis, so if you’d like to book your free local or UK-wide cool-packed 10am next day delivery then let us know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
