April Orders

We’ve had a busy time on the farm.....Sows are farrowing, Growers are growing and the grass is exploding with the lovely rain and warmth we’ve had. We had a break over Easter (well sort of – you never really get break when you have a farm), but it’s now time to organise deliveries again.

We have had to revise our prices going forward. Our fresh pork prices will remain the same, however the ham and bacon price needs to be increased. We had an “oops” moment recently when we realised that we made a miscalculation when we were pricing our products. We didn’t take into account the difference between the boned out pork for ham and bacon compared to the fresh pork. So, I’m afraid that we will need to adjust our pricing.  A 5kg pack of Ham and Bacon will now cost $19/kg ($95/pack).

Discounts for referrals: We have decided to reward our customers who introduce us to a new customer with a 10% discount on their next order. There will be a place on the order form that allows new customers to put the name of the person who told them about us. Make sure you also let me know if you put someone on to us.

Delivery Dates for Dawson Valley Free Range Pork:

Theodore, Baralaba and Woorabinda
Delivery – Wednesday 17th April and Thursday 18th April

Biloela, Gladstone and Rockhampton
Delivery – Thursday 18th April

Dysart, Moranbah, Emerald and Blackwater
Deliver – Wednesday 24th April

 All Orders Close - Friday 12th April

 If you live in Brisbane or on the Sunshine Coast, just put an order in when you want to and when we have enough, we will schedule a trip down south. We can’t go that distance without having quite a large delivery, as we need to be able to justify the cost of the travel. We will aim to go down every 2 to 3 months, therefore the next likely delivery will be May/June.
