A Very Happy New Year to All

Uncategorized

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!!

Retail price of items if bought individually would be £38.50 approximately. Free local delivery. Only two of these available as we only have two joints of brisket left!

Firewood… a must have!

Uncategorized

Hating the cold and rain at the moment, nicest thing is to come home to the log burner blazing and the house all warm and toasty.  Mr Perks is kind enough to bring home all the rough old wood he acquires from his various activities but for anybody else there is the option to purchase lorry loads of excellent quality split logs. We purchase these from a supplier who only take wood from a renewable, sustainable source.  The hardwood logs are cut to a standard 10 inches (8 inches also available for smaller log burners) and have been well seasoned; their moisture content is guaranteed at being 25% or less.  delivered direct to you by our Sam Perks lorry, prices are £213 for a full load (2.5 cubic metres) or £115 for half a load.  8 inch logs are a little more expensive.  Book through our contact us page or via Sam Perks Beef facebook page.  Stay warm!!

Christmas Turkeys!

Uncategorized

Blundeston Farm saw the arrival of 6 turkeys this week.  Norfolk Bronzes which we will be fattening up in time for Christmas.  As always, it is important to us that our children understand and respect where their food comes from and that the animals we eat have had the best possible quality of life.  Rearing our own free-range turkeys provides us with peace of mind regarding how they are cared for, what they are fed and how they are slaughtered.  Thank you to the boys who helped construct their large pen, (providing access all day to grass and other shrubs to scratch about in) and to Florence, our youngest farmer, for welcoming them with her usual smile!  We plan to sell these for £50.00, plucked and packaged nicely and accompanied by a jar of Mrs Perks homemade cranberry sauce.  Even better; we will deliver them fresh on Christmas Eve, avoiding wasting half your day queuing in the butchers!  Any feedback (or orders!) welcomed!
