I have finally managed to get the dates for the next month or so sorted out. We have been very busy on the farm lately - this heat just creates so much more work - mostly making wallows for the pigs to keep cool.
I have done up a new order form with a few minor changes.
We are offering 2 types of fresh pork packs – the two together would be similar to our old 10kg packs, just thought we’d break it up for those that have smaller freezers.
Ham and Bacon Pack is different this time as we want to trial the shoulder ham – this would be great for lunches as there is no bone.
We have been delivering our pork direct to you, but this has proved to be costly in time and resources. It means we take the pigs over to Monto one week and then collect them the next, then deliver to the various towns. Monto is about a 6 hour round trip from Baralaba. We started this way as we really wanted to develop our market and also to get to know some of our customers, as we feel it is important to have that relationship. However, we are going to trial using a third party to deliver to some of the towns. It will mean that we can offer delivery every month if need be. It also means that it will be delivered to your door. Kim and I will still do some deliveries, for example, Theodore, Moura, Baralaba and Woorabinda.
We are hoping to also be able to offer delivery to Emerald, Dysart, Middlemount and Moranbah, so if you are in these areas, please contact me asap so that I can organise a delivery date for those towns.
Dates are as follows:
• Theodore, Moura, Baralaba and Woorabinda – Delivery 30th and 31st January. Sorry for the short notice, but you must get your order back to me by this WEDNESDAY, the 23rd January. Please Note: This will be for fresh pork only. We had a special order for 3 pigs, and so we can only fit it in if we do fresh pork. Kim will be delivering this, so we will meet at a Central Location in Theodore and Moura (to be advised later)
• Biloela, Calliope, Tannum and Rocky – Delivery will be 14th and 15th February. You will need to get your orders in to me by Friday, 1st February. The full range on the order form will be available for these orders.
We look forward to the year ahead and will keep you all posted on any changes or updates via this Blog or via Facebook.
