December

The warm(ish) winter weather has given us an opportunity of continuing the general maintenance on the estate like the fencing, of which we have some miles!

We also needed to repair a water leak which was, of course, right in the middle of the car park and much further down than we thought. Matt was allowed out of the hole by Christmas, though.

January

But when the weather did get colder and frostier the morning view from the office window was wonderful.

February

We were really honoured to be asked to be involved with this year’s Zest Quest Asia (http://www.zestquestasia.com) by our friend and long-time customer Cyrus Todiwala. We supplied venison for the Shammi Kavaab at the events gala dinner (Shammi Kavaab- venison cooked with yellow split peas and spices, ground to a smooth paste, formed into patties, filled with chutney and pan-fried – now say you are not hungry!) and Cecilia, who was invited to the event, can vouch for all the superb food.

On the night Milton Keynes College pipped rivals Doncaster College, University College Birmingham, University of West London, and former champions, Farnborough College and Westminster Kingsway College following a cook-off held at Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen, the signature restaurant of the Hilton London Heathrow T5. All 6 colleges did so well to get to the final as the competition was very stiff. Congratulations to them all!

We were also a happy contributor to Merlin Labron-Johnson’s residence at Patty and Bun (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/patty-bun-residence-with-merlin-labron-johnson-portland-restaurant-tickets-19906993353) to raise funds for the refugee charity 'Calais Kitchen'. This amazing group of people provide free food to thousands of starving refugees in Calais every day and any help is gratefully received.

Prices Stay the Same for the Coming Year

As customers know, we release our updated standard price list on 1st September and then we try our very best to keep to those prices for a full year so people know where they are with us. This control and longer term view is one of the advantages of having so much of our business on-farm from start to finish.

This year we are very pleased to say that the new 2012-2013 price list will be exactly the same as last year’s price list – there will be no changes in the prices of Venison, Denham Castle Lamb, Wild Boar, Pork, Beef and Apple Juice.
