Festive Newsletter 2021
Hello friends of Marrbury
I know many of you have been eager to receive our newsletter this year –
Thank you so much to those of you who have placed your early order – Every year it becomes increasingly difficult for us to meet the demands – and with carriers this year predicting chaos – we are so appreciative of getting foods out as early in December as is possible.
We will be updating our delivery dates very shortly – but final reminder to take advantage of previous years’ prices (most of which have not been increased in over two years) you do need to place your order online now, and take delivery on or before December 8th.
We do have some other exciting news –
Firstly, we are now very proud Grandparents! I know those of you who have been with us from our early days, will have fond memories of our daughter Kimberley – she and her husband have welcomed our beautiful Grandson into the world in Cayman in October – we are absolutely over the moon!
With this said, although we are not yet retiring from production, and indeed from UK online home delivery (I am sure you will be relieved at this!) – we have decided at this stage in life, we do need to stop working 24/7 and in early 2022 we handover the reigns at Carsluith Castle to Eshan and Suzy at Oakhill Café and Deli. Eshan and Suzy are a wonderful couple from Rutland, who are as passionate about their foods as we are. They will continue to fly the flag for us by stocking Marrbury produce amongst their vast array of delicious deli and cafe foods.
We will still be producing and in actual fact may well increase options for UK home delivery – but we no longer will operate from Carsluith Castle.
In the lead up to Christmas this year we will only be opening our shop on very limited hours. DO phone if traveling far as hours may change at very short notice.
We cannot guarantee staff can be at hand to take your order by phone so unless it is absolutely essential please opt for online ordering.
We are three people – not a huge team – and we are working non stop in production. Once January comes it will in fact purely be ourselves (Vincent and Ruby) – hence our produce is still as good as it was back in 1996 !
Our delivery dates closer to Christmas along with the increased pricing, will be active at noon on Sunday 28th November - So last chance to grab a bargain! Remember our foods have a long shelf and the salmon freezes exceptionally well.
We will of course be in touch before we hand over to Eshan and Suzy – and rest assured Marrbury Smokehouse at Bargrennan will still be our key production for years to come.
Take care friends – stay safe and as always “Winter Well”
Lang may yer lum reek!
Ruby and Vincent (and Hannah)
