As mentioned in last weeks newsletter, we spoke to Bryce, the Mossgiel diary farmer about the expiry date on the milk. It appears that the labelling machine which adds the volumes and dates to the labels, was printing the incorrect date following a glitch in the system. Bryce has now fixed this, so milk will now be dated to each Tuesday, following your delivery on Friday. This is the maximum expiry date as the milk is fresh and not heavily processed. He also recommended keeping the milk at 3ºC to retain it’s freshness.

 

We’re closed from the 24th of December, reopening on the 3rd of January. If you need to contact us, send us an email and we’ll pick it up in the new year.

There’s no delivery on the 30th of December, the next will be on the 6th of January.

Thank you for your support over the past year – you’ll find a chocolately treat in your veg box as a token of our appreciation.

Have a great end to the year, and we’ll see you in 2017!
