Newsletter No 5


A Happy New Year to all our followers, and its got to get better! Hopefully this Newsletter will bring some cheer today especially with our lovely photo. “Biggy” can only bring a smile to your face. So let’s have a look at what’s been going on on the farm, and catch up with where we are with the beef and pork we sell.

THANK YOU to all of you who have supported us over the last 12 months or so. A big thank you also to those of you who chose us for Christmas and New Year’s meals and thank you to all of you who have sent notes and messages saying how much you enjoyed the meat.

WWW.PARKHILL.FARM.CO.UK is live, and the shopping cart section should be working well. Don’t be put off by so many items being sold out, there are bargains to be had! Hopefully bacon will be back in stock in February.

Covid 19 is still headlining for businesses and customers, and so we are keeping our policy of making appointments for customers to come and collect their meat to keep us all safe. Also, if your order is ready to collect, it will be easier and safer for us all.


You may remember we held a raffle for one of our 5kg Family Shopper Meat Boxes. We raised quite a lot of money and I am making it up to £100, to give to the Salvation Army, in Stoke on Trent, now run by Adullam Lifehouse. The lucky winner was Mrs L Webb, and she has chosen to taken her prize in March. I have yet to make the donation, but this is on my list of jobs to do in January.


Packs of 10 beef burgers are £5.00. Other items are on sale, but are limited! Check out the website We will be doing the free of charge delivery service to Market Drayton and Loggerheads areas, so don’t forget to ask us, but please drop us a quick email to check stocks before you order joints through the website.

“Biggy” and “Dandy” in the snow


Following a busy Christmas with orders, the snow kept on falling, and it was inevitable that the front of the sheds and the fields would give us some lovely photos. Here is “Biggy” the calf, whose story I must tell one day on Facebook. He is a darling, but born at 70kg, he was almost double the size of most of his friends, and he has several friends now with the latest being born on New Years Day.

“Dandy” the Oxford Sandy and Black pig, will come into the pig herd to breed from this year. The pig herd is being rejuvenated, due to some sows getting older. All animals are housed at night time, so everyone gets fresh air in the day, and warmth at night.


Covid again has stopped all events, so keep an eye on the website to see what items are in stock. We have special offers on the website, but we also have a lot of sold out items already. If you can’t see what you would like, please send me an email, and I will check out the freezer for you – its John will be delivering around the week of the 7th February, or you are welcome to come and collect from the farm at an agreed time – to keep us all Covid safe!
