Fun, Food & Farming!

Broom House Butchery News

It's been British Sausage week and so the butchers have been cooking lots of sizzling samples for customers to try in the Farm Shop - it's interesting that this really does help sales.   As usual we will be stocking Organic Bronze Turkeys, Ducks, Chickens and Guineafowl from the Nelless family at Thistleyhaugh Farm near Rothbury .  If you'd like a goose, Judith Dryden will be supplying these again, and she also does Kelly bronze turkeys & crown roasts.  

Many of you prefer beef or pork for Christmas and everyone needs a gammon to roast for the festive season. Please print off our Christmas Meats Order Form ready to discuss with our helpful team on your next visit to the shop. We also have an order form for our homemade chutneys, puddings and pies - we can cut down the work involved in your festive preparations, large or small. If you aren't coming up to the shop in the next week or 2 please do  Email the Butchers and they'll reply with a form that you can complete and email back to them. If you'd like any advice on cuts of meat for Christmas ring the butchery hotline 0191 371 8839. 

We really are offering a one-stop Festive Shop where you can leave us a list of everything from your turkey to your trimmings and even your Christmas mince and mincemeat and we will have it all packed and ready for you. We'll be making our usual range of sausages, sausagemeats, chiplolatas, pigs in blankets, stuffings and bacon. This year we are extending our service to include orders for Christmas vegetables, dairy products and puddings to try and make your life even easier, and don't let worries about the weather put you off, we'll make sure that the road is clear or will meet you somewhere safe. 

Our Snowbuster Boxes and Boxing Day Breakfast Boxes sold well last winter and we will be delighted to make up individual hampers for you to give away as Christmas presents or fill your own freezer with before the snow arrives. You can collect these from the Farm Shop or we can send your meat order by next day courier to anywhere in the country!We also have Broom House gift vouchers which make great presents as they can be used in the Butchery, Coffee Shop and Forest Trail...or how about giving somebody a voucher for one of our "Learn to Butcher" courses!  
It's Farmer's Market in Durham on Thursday 15th November and then we'll be at a few more Christmas Fairs over the next month or so - keep an eye on our website for details. Next weekend we will be at The Clervaux Trust  Christmas Fair at Clow Beck Farm near Darlington -Saturday 17th of November 10am - 4pm...let us know if you'd like any orders bringing there.
