May Newsletter 2020

Hello from Asmus Farm Cottage

It’s May already! We hope you are all keeping safe and well, whatever your situation at the present time. As I write this I am sat in the sunshine with this wonderful view (minus the unfortunate eyesore which is the quarry!) We are so lucky to live here. The pigs have been happily sunbathing this week and cuddling up with one another! Martin has been giving them haylage to munch on now that they have eaten through all the fresh grass and they are very happy pigs!

What’s new on the farm?

This week we welcomed Babs to the farm from Martin’s breeder friend in Yorkshire. She is a pure Gloucester Old Spot gilt all ready to start breeding with Hugo. We needed to introduce a new bloodline of female as we only have two boars and we won’t interbreed our pigs!! She is a fine looking girl and we hope she will prove to be a good mummy.

 

Spring Chickens

100 day old chicks were delivered this week ready to go outside and free range in a few week’s time to grow on for meat, so watch this space for those…

Home Life

We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful place with safe outside space for the children, especially at the moment. Life for us here hasn’t been too much different really, apart from the shop being closed and having a house full of children and teenagers to home-school and feed CONSTANTLY! Luckily we will never run out of food and we have had some lovely BBQs with our produce over the past few weeks. Martin has also been busy planting the polytunnel so we will have lots of lovely fresh veg to see us through this isolation period! The lettuce has already sprouted and is so delicious. It’s “The Good Life” up here at the moment!

 

Butchery

We really miss seeing you all at the shop but we are happy that we can continue to butcher for you. As most of you are probably aware we are offering a set £25 meat pack for local delivery each week, delivered on a Thursday. This changes weekly so we will let you know what is in each week’s pack the weekend before delivery. We are also continuing to supply the Village Store in Harwood and Milk Maids in Over Hulton with our sausages each week, so if you don’t want a whole meat pack then you can always grab a pack of sausages from there.

This week’s meat pack for local delivery on Thursday, 14th May will include:

500g Traditional Sausage

500g Bank Top Beer Bangers 

4 Pork Burgers

500g Pork Mince

250g Unsmoked Back Bacon

6 Free Range Eggs – may be a mixture of duck and hen or substituted if we have a lot of orders.

If you would like a meat pack delivery then please send your name, address and a contact number to contact@asmusfarmcottage.co.uk  

That’s all for now folks! Stay safe and well.

Meat Pack Delivery

Dear friends,

We hope you are all keeping well in these very unsettled times for us all.

Due to high demand and now that the panic buying seems to have calmed down a little we have decided to bring back our delivery service but starting with a SET MEAT PACK ONLY. There are only the two of us and it will make our lives so much easier if you all have the same thing for now! We will assess this on a weekly basis and make changes where appropriate.

This week’s meat pack is £25 and will comprise of

500g Traditional Pork Sausage

500g Old English Sausage

250g Unsmoked Back Bacon

500g Pork Mince

4 Pork Burgers

6 Eggs – Subject to availability – we may need to substitute eggs for something else.

We will deliver to your doorstep on Wednesday or Thursday and leave without any contact. Payment can be made either over the phone or via bank transfer.

Please email us on contact@asmusfarmcottage.co.uk to place an order, stating your name, address, contact number and how you would like to pay.

We hope that this will work out for everyone. Should we be inundated with orders we will put you down first for delivery the following week.

Stay safe please and stay at home.

No more deliveries for now

Dear friends,

We have made the hard decision to stop all meat production here on the farm during these incredibly hard times and will no longer be offering a delivery service.

We are a small family business and we need to put our safety and that of our family as priority. We will be staying at home for as long as it takes and the good thing is, there will be some very fat pigs ready for you all at the end of this!!

We will reopen just as soon as it is safe to do so. We hope you all understand and thank you for your continued support.
Look after yourselves everyone. Stay safe,

Love Martin & Jane x

Coronavirus Update

What impact does the current situation have on us?

We are carrying on as normal this week as there tends to only be one or two customers in our shop at any one time. We intend to open on Friday and Saturday 9:00 – 13:00 unless we are advised otherwise so please do check the website before you come. Obviously please stay away if you have any symptoms!

We imagine this will be the last time we can open for a while so we have made sure that we have plenty of meat! It is all super fresh so please feel free to stock up your freezer for the coming weeks and message or ring us with any orders.

This week’s sausage flavours are: Traditional Pork, Pork and Leek, Black Pudding, Firecracker, French Herb and Garlic.

I am self isolating / do not want to come to the shop

We are happy to provide a free local delivery service to anyone who wants it. Either message us on here or ring 01204 303972 or 07969462211 (Jane) or 07702967480 (Martin). We can take payment by card over the phone for those of you not wishing to leave the house.

When will Asmus Farm Cottage shop reopen?

We simply do not know. These are worrying times and none of us knows what is going to happen.

We plan to carry on supplying The Village Store at the bottom of the lane and Milk Maids with bacon and sausages so you can buy from there when our shop is closed. We will also still carry out a delivery service if possible so please stay in touch and keep an eye on the website and Facebook. This all depends on the abattoir’s opening hours so please do bear with us at this difficult time.

Most of all friends, please look after yourselves and stay safe.
