In the era of adaptation, we're opening up choice and services to cater for more circumstances.
Things might be getting back to normal, but things have still changed, and different people have different needs and different personal circumstances. Thats why this Christmas we're continuing to adapt our traditional offering to cater for the broad range of situations in which people now find themselves.
We’ve been offering fresh Lancashire turkeys since 2009, and we’re delighted to say that means hundreds of successful Christmas dinners already. We offer full birds ranging from 10lb to 20lb collected fresh from J&A Garth in Lancaster just days before Christmas, alongside boneless and rolled turkey breast known as 'crowns' which our regular butcher David Green expertly prepares for us. Prefer duck or goose? That's no problem either.
As you will see on our order form though, we accept orders for ANY meats for collection whether you are ordering turkey or not. Some items are listed individually on the form but if your requirement ISN'T listed, just add it on yourself in the appropriate section.
How to order:
You can order in person or online.
In person: Simply print your form (click the button below), fill it in, and come and see us with a £20 deposit. We have increased the deposit in 2021 due to the number of no-shows in 2020.
Online: go to https://windy-arbour.shop/collections/meat-orders
Please read all the instructions carefully.
This year we are placing a limit on the number of meat collections per day to help reduce queueing BUT DON'T WORRY there is plenty of availability so if your ideal day is full, others will still be available. You can collect your order any time between 9am and 7pm on the 21st, 22nd & 23rd (THE SHOP WILL STILL CLOSE AT 5pm); and between 7am and 10am on Xmas Eve. If you want to come between 5pm and 7pm, no need to book - just come.
Christmas Dinner Veg Boxes
Thanks to their popularity in 2020 we will once again be offering a Christmas Dinner Veg Box. This willl be a 'set menu' box and will be available for collection out of hours (5pm-7pm) on the 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd (You can collect on Xmas Eve but you would have to book a "23rd" box. To enable us to serve as many people as possible, we aren't offering different sized boxes, we cannot alter the contents, not pick 'shopping lists'.
If you find something you wont use, why not give it to someone who will appreciate it! Or if you feel there won't be enough, order 2 boxes.
In 2020 thanks to social distancing, peak times during Christmas week were somewhat chaotic because not enough people could shop at one time. We will of course still be encouraging consideration for others, but at time of writing there aren't any distancing rules so the whole process should be smoother. We've also capped the number of meat collections per day to ease traffic too.
