December 2013 NEWSLETTER
Christmas is less than a week away, but there are still roses coming into bud and geraniums flowering in the garden. Up until last week we've also had the main herd grazing the front field, which is unheard of at this time of year! They're now tucking into stubble turnips, which is a bit of a Christmas treat!
Whilst we've had some wind and rain over the last few days we are very grateful for a relatively mild, dry autumn, which has been an extra bonus after a truelly wonderful summer.
As we write we are waiting for the courier to collect the final consignment of Christmas Orders and we're looking forward to seeing some of you tomorrow (Friday 20 December) when you call into the Butchery. Thank you very much to everyone who has supported us over the course of the year. We so enjoy talking and corresponding with you all. We are very fortunate to have such a loyal following which continues to grow and flourish. We believe wholeheartedly in our beef and the way in which we produce it. When it comes to the taste, well if you're reading this, you'll know that that speaks for itself!
May we take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy, peaceful and healthy New Year!
We look forward to hearing from you in 2014.
With very best wishes
Sam and Claire
Great Berwick Farm, Shrewsbury, Shropshire
Those of you who've been down to the Butchery on a Friday afternoon may have met Sarah and if so will have experienced her passion and enthusiasm. She is our pocket rocket and without her tireless loyality and commitment to her work here we'd struggle to provide the service we do. She cuts, packs,weighs, labels, taste tests, you name it she does it. She is our Berwick Star.
The Butchery will be open between 10am and 6pm on Friday 20 December for you to collect your Christmas orders and pick up any last minute supplies of beef,
pies, horseradish or bearnaise for your fridge/freezer.
We will also be open between 12pm and 4pm on Friday 27 December for you to collect your New Year orders.
Our first day back in the New Year will be Friday 3 January when it will be business as usual in the Butchery between 12 midday and 6pm.
We will, of course, continue to pick up emails and telephone calls over the Christmas period. We might not be quite so quick replying though!!
