Delivery dates and delivery address

There is an option to specify a delivery date by checking a date on a calendar on the checkout page. We will attempt to schedule delivery on that date if possible. This is not always possible and will depend on availability of stock, and the time required to butcher some items.  

You will receive a confirmation of order email showing the goods you have ordered when you place your order. 

After this you will receive a second email stating the date when we plan to deliver your order.  We will ask you 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 ship on the date we have stated. You are able to 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 into the Parcelforce system. 

Once we have handed your parcel over to Parcelforce you can track its progress at the Parcelforce website https://www.parcelforce.com/track-trace or on Parcelforce's tracking app.  See https://www.parcelforce.com/tracking-options for more information about the Parcelforce App.

Product weights

Weight of meat cuts & poultry

We cut  meat as accurately as possible, but as this is a natural product the weight of the product supplied may vary slightly from the weight ordered. It is impossible for the butcher to be absolutely precise when cutting meat to size and poultry weights vary slightly from week to week depending on the exact age of the birds when killed.  Customers who have paid in advance online will not have to pay more if they are delivered or collect a heavier product than than purchased, but we will not make a refund if a product is less than 10% lighter than that prepaid online

Customers who opt to pay on collection at the Farm Shop or at St George's Market Belfast will be charged the exact price for the item supplied as shown on the scale when they collect.  

How much meat should I order?

Open tab

Here is a general guide  - based on average portions.

Turkey - allow approximately 1.5 lbs (675 g per person). For turkeys under 14 lb allow approximately 2 lb (900 g) per portion as the bone to meat ratio is higher for smaller birds.

Goose - allow 2 lbs (900 g) per portion. The biggest geese are only about 11-12 lbs (approx 5.5 kg) so if you need to feed more than 6 people you will need 2 geese.

Chicken (whole, on the bone) - allow 1 lb (450 g) per portion.

Duck - allow 1 lb (450 g) portion.

Pheasant - 1 pheasant feeds 2 people.

Guinea Fowl - 1 guinea fowl feeds 4 people.

 

Ham, raw. Order 8 oz (225 g) per portion. This will give you 4 oz (110 g) of cooked ham per portion. Ham loses approximately 1/3 to 1/2 its weight in the boiling process, so if you need 2 kg of cooked meat, you should order 4 kg of raw ham.

Meat on the bone (e.g. Rib Roast) - allow 1 lb (450 g) per portion.

Meat, boned (e.g. Rump roast/Topside Roast/Boned Pork Loin) - allow 8 ounces (225 g) per portion.

Meat boned for casserole (e.g. venison casserole pieces) allow 4 oz (110 g) for a casserole with equal vegetable ingredients e.g. mushrooms, onions, carrots. If the casserole meat is just poached in wine, allow 8 oz (225 g) per portion.
