Happy New Year
We have had to make some tough decisions over the past few weeks here at Gartmorn, and it is with a sad heart we tell you we’ll no longer be carrying on all year-round production.
Due to the demand of our product, we have sadly outgrown the environmental health authority inspection. The next step would be to become licensed with the Food Standard Agency. The move from local authority inspection to the Food Standard agency inspection is enormous; we would have to grow to such an extent that the ethos of our business would be lost.
The good news is we will be continuing to rear turkeys, chickens and ducks for Christmas. We would rather concentrate on rearing just for Christmas with the same high standards than grow too large and lose all that we have worked for over the years. The welfare of our birds is of the upmost importance to us and we do not want to compromise that.
We will be at Glasgow Farmers market on 26th January and the 9th and 23rd February, and at Perth Farmers Market on 2nd February and 2nd March.
We are incredibly grateful for all the custom and loyalty that you have given us over the many years and hope we can still be of service to you for the Christmas period.
***If you are coming to collect your turkey from us, please be aware that google maps does not take you along the correct farm track (please see our ‘contact us’ page). We are outside Coalsnaughton; there are signs at the end of the drive with our logo and name on them and there will be more signs as you head down the drive. Most sat navs and apple maps seem to work, however, please do not rely on them, look out for the signs.***
