****************** UPDATE – June 2020 ******************

Bagged feed pricing policy

In order to manage visitor numbers to our site during the coronavirus epidemic we have priced feed inclusive of delivery since 1st April. For customers who normally collect, it has been an opportunity to take advantage of the inclusive delivery service and avoid unnecessary journeys. However we have remained open for collections for those requiring feed urgently. The system we have developed for visitors is completely contactless with customers remaining in their vehicles. So we feel the time is right to have more customers back on site should they wish to.

Return of the discount for collection – From 1st June we will reinstate discounted prices for collection. It will still be very important that customers respect the  protocols whilst on site. As the vast majority of our bagged feeds are delivered we will continue to quote prices in the newsletter which include delivery as this is more transparent to the majority of customers.

Keeping you safe and keeping you supplied

Visitors to the mill & office – Many thanks to all our customers who have got used to the new normal remarkably quickly.  With the reinstatement of collection discounts the yard may well become busier and the continued compliance with the protocol will be important.

If you wish to visit the site the protocol is as follows.

  • Ideally, order in advance on 01288 341111
  • Upon arrival park in one of the collection bays please be understanding if there is a wait.
  • Remain in your vehicle, someone will assist you from a safe distance.
  • Once loaded there will be no paperwork to exchange, it will be forwarded by email or post.
  • Should you wish to secure your load you may do this yourself when our staff have withdrawn to a safe distance.
  • No payments are being accepted on site. BACS details are on all our invoices or you can use telephone card payments or even the good old fashioned cheque in the post.

Coronavirus – keeping you safe and keeping you supplied
Visitors to the mill & office – It is still very much business as usual. We would like to thank the vast majority of customers for their cooperation with the measures we have put in place. Operations have been very busy but remarkably smooth .
If you need to visit the site the new protocol is as follows.
  • Ideally, order in advance on 01288 341111
  • Upon arrival park in one of the collection bays
  • Remain in your vehicle, someone will assist you from a safe distance
  • Once loaded there will be no paperwork to exchange, it will be forwarded by email or post.
  • Should you wish to secure the load you may do this yourself when our staff have withdrawn to a safe distance.
  • No payments are being accepted on site. BACS details are on all our invoices or you can use telephone card payments.
We also remind customers at this time that we have priced tote bagged feed inclusive of delivery. The delivery service for bulk and bagged feed is a good way to reduce the risk of exposure for vulnerable groups and for those in regular contact with vulnerable family members.
Bagged feed pricing policy change
In order to help customers safely stay on their farms since April 1st we have priced all tote bagged feed & pallets of at least 30x20kg bags inclusive of delivery.
For customers currently receiving deliveries you will notice the complete removal of all haulage charges. (35 mile limit applies)
For customers who normally collect, it is an opportunity to take advantage of the inclusive delivery service and avoid an unnecessary journey.
However we do remain open for collections if you need feed urgently but there will no longer be any financial incentive to visit the mill to collect. The aim is to cut travelling off farm by customers and risk to both customers and our staff.
We like to be transparent, 20kg bags remain the same price but 600kg tote bags include £12 to cover delivery. We would also urge customers to order a volume to last them at least three weeks to cut down on visits at this time.
Just to be even more transparent the delivery element (£12)of any tote bags that are collected  is being used as a staff bonus to reward the commitment our staff have shown in a public facing role at this time. There is no profiteering it is a measure introduced solely to protect everyone.

April 2020
Covid-19 is set to dominate all our lives for the next few months. We want to make everyone aware of procedures we have implemented to safeguard our staff, our customers, their families and the continued efficient operation of our business and yours over this difficult period.
Farm visits – we will only visit farms at the customer’s request and after making an appointment. We will be happy to come for outdoor meetings with good separation, don’t be afraid to ask if you need advice or help with anything feed or nutrition related.
Visitors to the mill & office –It is still very much business as usual. We would like to thank the vast majority of customers for their cooperation with the increased biosecurity measures we put in place last week. Operations have been busy but smooth over the last seven days. In order to provide even more peace of mind to customers visiting our site for collections we have added some additional measures to enable total isolation within your vehicle. The new protocol is as follows.
  • Ideally to order in advance on 01288 341111
  • Upon arrival park in one of the collection bays
  • Remain in your vehicle at all times, someone will assist you from a safe distance
  • Once loaded there will be no paperwork to exchange, it will be forwarded by email or post.
  • No payments are being accepted on site. BACS details are on all our invoices or you can use telephone card payments.
We also remind customers at this time that we have an economic delivery service for bulk and bagged feed which would reduce the risk of exposure for vulnerable groups or those in regular contact with vulnerable family members.
Deliveries – We are advising customers to look at their order volume, and if possible, increase the tonnage to decrease the frequency of visits to farm. Bulk deliveries can be undertaken unassisted. Bag deliveries will need someone present to drive the unloading machinery, but we ask that a safe distance is maintained from the driver. Small volume bag drops with the van at markets etc. have ceased whilst attendance at markets is restricted.
Mill operation – Currently we have no indication of any supply chain problems. There are adequate stocks of our major raw materials in our store or at the docks, We have a number of contingency plans in place should we suffer from severe staff shortages. It is our firm intention that operations and feed availability will remain largely unaffected there is no need to panic buy or carry large stocks
