Can I come tonight?
Can I come tomorrow?
This is a frequent phone conversation we have with new customers. 🙂 Though we have a working farm, it’s a small family farm, and we also work off-farm. And the farm is also our home! So the farm isn’t manned like a retail store with set hours. Instead, you must make an appointment to come, so that it fits into our schedule.
Drop-in visitors are extremely disruptive to our work, our family-and-friends time, our dinner hours etc.; and we may not even be home. So please, please don’t plan on “just showing up” to either visit and learn about our operation, or because you’re hoping to butcher a lamb. You may find us a bit impatient with you if you do turn up unannounced!
There is a process for making arrangements to do on-farm slaughter, and it requires planning ahead, ideally by several weeks. Please read the FAQ Can I Choose The Lamb I Want for Slaughter? for information on how lambs are pre-selected for buyers based on live weight.
