Fallow Deer at Millbank
Except for addresses in the Highlands and Islands we charge £12.00 per order or FREE on orders over £170.00, or you could order your venison here and collect it from our farm or at one of the farmers’ markets we attend. For the Highlands and Islands we charge a £30 delivery fee or free for orders over £300.
We deliver on Thursdays or Fridays to most UK postal addresses by next-day courier. Unfortunately there are some areas we cannot deliver to, for example the Scottish Highlands and Islands, because a next-day delivery service is not available.
If you are not going to be at home to accept delivery of your order you must give us alternative arrangements. For example “leave with neighbour” or “leave in shed “.
But please note that in November and December, we are busy, and although we always do our best to fulfil orders, we may need a weeks notice. However, please don’t hesitate to phone and check availability, as often we find we can manage a last minute order.
To keep your order in perfect condition we vacuum pack your meat and pack it in a temperature controlled box with ice packs. This will keep your order chilled for a minimum of 48 hours and will ensure it arrives with you in perfect condition.
We have tried to make the most sustainable packaging choices for you.
Here’s some information behind our packaging choices.
We want the sustainability, quality and appearance of our packaging to reflect the high quality and sustainability of our venison.
Our plastic trays protect the venison and ensure hygiene, although they are recyclable once rinsed, we do try to minimise their use.
Vacuum pouches are a very sustainable method of packaging they enhance the shelf-life of the venison, protect the venison during transit and in the freezer and once rinsed are recyclable. The problem is they don’t always complement the appearance of our venison.
Polystyrene Mail Order Packaging
We have teamed up with a local company to save their temperature controlled polystyrene boxes from the bin. Although polystyrene does not seem to be the most environmentally sensitive choice it is undoubtedly the best option to keep the temperature controlled for mail-order in hot weather or if there is the likelihood of a postal delay. Polystyrene is also very light weight and adds some protection to our venison. Please try to reuse the polystyrene box.
Cardboard And Wool-Cool Mail Order Packaging
Cardboard and wool are fully compostable products, however we may not use them if your venison is likely to be delivered during hot weather or at a busy time of year when it may be of risk of a postal delay. Please try to return, reuse or recycle the cardboard and Wool-Cool.
Compostable Carrier Bags V’s Paper Carrier Bags
After significant research we have discovered that contrary to popular belief using composable carrier bags is far more sustainable than paper bags or “Bags for Life”.
Sending Venison as a present is the perfect gift.
We can help by giving advice. All we need is your friends postcode, address and phone number. Due to the perishable nature of the venison it is quite important that your friend has some warning about the delivery day so they can sign for the delivery.
