Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year, and in 2020 it presented us with an opportunity to make up for what was a pretty awful year battling the COVID-19 Pandemic. We have always viewed Christmas as a chance to do something a little different and celebrate the festivities, with us hosting a visit from Santa each year, and also offering Christmas Party Nights throughout December. We often run our Festive Fayre through the Coffee Shop too, offering Festive Specials, Christmas Dinners and so on.
However, due to the Pandemic many of our usual plans couldn’t go ahead and we therefore adapted the Festive Fayre to run through the Farm Shop instead. We had real push on all things Christmas, and I dare say it rescued a pretty dismal year! These plans will now be here to stay, and will gradually grow over the years to come. Everything we out in place can be seen below!
For the first time ever, we teamed up with local turkey farmer Mike to offer whole, oven-ready turkeys through the Farm Shop. Turkeys were priced at £3.50* per lb, and anything between 10lb and 23lb
were available! A Turkey size guide here.
Pre-orders for Turkey’s must be made by the 10th December to ensure they are ready for collection from us on the 23rd and 24th December. Not only did we offer Turkeys, but we also had a big push on our own home-reared meat too. We sell our home-reared Lamb Leg and Shoulder as well as Pork Leg and Gammon Joints through the Farm Shop.
2020 also saw us upscale our Christmas Tree sales. We invested in a Netting Funnel and also offered delivery too. We sold a selection of Premium Nordmann Fir Trees from the Farm Shop and set them up so like a small forest so people were able to wander round and view the trees and pick their perfect one. We also sold a selection of stands too. Prices were as follows;
2ft – 4ft = £27.00*
5ft – 6ft = £34.00*
6ft – 7ft = £38.00*
7ft – 8ft = £48.00*
Stands = £22.50*
