Lots of enquiries coming through from excited brides planning their 2016 weddings with dried flower arrangements. Prices for 2016 are currently still fixed at 2015 prices but this is set to change in the next few days to reflect increasing costs so do please bear this in mind if planning to order soon!
A sneak preview of beautiful Courtney and her dried flower bouquet, photo courtesy of Haydn Rydings. Courtney went for a subtle harmony of purples and sage green to show off her exquisite dress to its full advantage. A lovely lady to create flowers for; it was a real pleasure to be responsible for a (tiny) part of her special day.
Wishing a very Happy New Year to all of our customers; old and new alike. The end of 2014 was exceptionally busy, promoting the beef, setting up a floristry business and even diversifying into Turkeys. Our six perky turkeys saw a swift farewell a few days before Christmas and we’ve had some wonderful feedback regarding their taste and succulence. Watch this space and get your orders in early for next year! 2014 also saw a change in the way we advertise, the development of new products along with opportunities to get out and about showcasing our grass-fed Aberdeen Angus Beef. We were delighted to receive five stars following the environmental inspection of our home food premises and look forward to making more complimentary products and attending local food markets with our home-cooked beef stews and curries.
Our premium beef has been selling exceptionally well of late, so much so that we are working hard to persuade Grandpa Perks to send another couple of cows to be butchered as soon as possible. In the meantime we have a selection of beef still available along with a limited number of deluxe selection boxes. Our beef continues to be priced extremely competitively as we understand that this is often the crucial factor in customers being able to purchase local and ethically reared beef.
2015 looks to be another busy year, building on recent successes and making further developments. Ideas for the future include glamping on the paddock, the addition of lambs/pigs to the farm, liaising with local eateries and even creating our own 100% beef doggie treats. We also plan to continue to run monthly special offers on our beef to tie in with special occasions and find more time to utilise facebook and twitter as mechanisms through which we can raise awareness of who we are and what we do. Keep an eye out for our updates and please continue to tell your friends all about us. Looking forward to a very happy new year and wishing you all the same!! XX
Busy week, 25 buttonholes, one bouquet and…it’s half term! X
