Where we deliver
We deliver to the whole of Ireland, both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and the whole of the United Kingdom including Northern Ireland, Great Britain, the Channel Islands, Highlands, Scottish Islands and Isle of Man.
Delivery is free for larger orders - please see Delivery Charges page for details of delivery costs. Your delivery will be automatically calculated depending on your order value and delivery location and will be shown on the checkout page when you order.
How we deliver to Northern Ireland & Great Britain
We use Parcelforce 24 hour delivery service. Your order will be packed in an insulated box with ice, which will keep the meat refrigerated until it is delivered. Your order will be shipped from the farm by us and should be delivered by Parcelforce on the next day between 9 am and 5 pm. However in the Covid-19 emergency Parcelforce has suspended Service Guarantees but seek to maintain services where they can. This means that although we pay for 24 hour next day delivery, Parcelforce may not be able to deliver on the next day and delivery may take 48 hours for some parcels. However, in practice so far we have found that Parcelforce in Northern Ireland and Great Britain have managed to deliver all the parcels we have sent since the beginning of March within 24 hours. We are packing all parcels with additional ice and insulation to ensure that the contents stay cold even if delivery takes longer than 24 hours. Please ensure you unpack and refrigerate or freeze your meat order as soon as it is delivered.

Delivery dates and delivery address
After you place an order we will send you a confirmation of order email showing the goods you have ordered. We will also send you a second email telling you on what date we plan to SHIP your order. At this stage you can let us know if you wish to change your shipping date or your delivery address. If we do not hear back from you we will ship your order to the delivery address which you put on your order and will send your order with Parcelforce on the SHIPPING DATE we have told you. Your order will be sent by Parcelforce 24 hour service and will be delivered the DAY AFTER your shipping date.
Changing your delivery date or delivery address
You can change your delivery address or shipping date by emailing us or phoning us up to a deadline of 5 pm on the DAY BEFORE your scheduled shipping date. After 5 pm on the day before your shipping date it is not possible to change your delivery address or shipping date. Please note no changes to delivery address or delivery date can be made on the date of shipping - the parcels are collected from our farm early in the morning and the delivery address or delivery date cannot be changed once they are scanned by the Parcelforce driver and taken away from the farm by Parcelforce.
Tracking your parcel
From the morning of the delivery date you can track the progress of your parcel on the Parcelforce website https://www.parcelforce.com or you can download the Parcelforce tracking app My Parcel Live which allows you to see where your parcel is and how far away the driver is.
Someone must be at the delivery address to sign for your parcel
Unlike other couriers the Parcelforce driver is not allowed to leave your parcel at your door or at a gate - the driver must get a signature to leave a delivery so please ensure someone is at the delivery address to sign for your order OR IT WILL NOT BE DELIVERED and they will take it back to their depot. Parcelforce delivers anytime between 9 am and 5 pm.
If you cannot be in at the delivery address you requested on your online order, please let us have an alternative delivery address where someone will be available to sign for your parcel anytime between 9 am and 5 pm (e.g. a work address). The deadline for changing your delivery address is 5 pm on the day before your order is shipped.
Changes to Parcelforce delivery procedure in relation to signing for and receiving items
In order to protect both Parcelforce drivers and customers as much as possible, Parcelforce will not be handing over hand-held devices to customers to capture electronic signatures. Parcelforce drivers will instead log the first and last name of the person accepting the item, then put 'XP1' in the signature field, and we will record the geolocation of the delivery. This will apply to all deliveries that normally require a signature.
If recipients are unable to come to the door or are self-isolating, Parcelforce will post a customer contact card in the normal way, advising of other ways the recipient can arrange to get their item. For example, by getting a friend or family member (who is not resident with someone who is self-isolating) to collect the parcel from their local Parcelforce depot or Post Office branch, as specified on the card. They will need to bring along the card we left and a form of ID in the name of the person the item is addressed to. Examples of suitable ID are specified on the card.
Alternatively you can collect your order at our Farm Shop on Friday or Saturday 2 pm to 9 pm. Please see Contactless Click and Collect
