Fresh Free Range Turkeys are Unavailable in 2020
It is with great regret that we at The Croft SY are not in a position to offer our 'Free Range Local Fresh Turkeys' this year.
There are a number of reasons. Firstly, unfortunately my father, who provides a lot of the support and workforce is out of the country. Secondly the costs of the birds have increased by as much as 20%, as have the costs of feed. We are uneasy at imposing this upon you, our cherished customers, as we've proudly kept our prices the same for the last 4 years and therefore this would be a marked increase in cost. Thirdly, there has not been as much interest this year, and I put this down to people not knowing what is going to happen this Christmas, what size gatherings we'll be able to have.
It was therefore very difficult for us to budget and forecast. Ultimately this would have been a large risk for such a small enterprise as we are to take on in these uncertain times.
We truly hope that 2021 will be a different story and we'll all be in a great position to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year in a more normal manner, with our turkeys taking pride of place on your family dinner table.
We sincerely hope to see and hear from you again in the future.
