I know I've posted this before but...I used to use Fenland for tanning but I understand they have gone out of business. Any recommendations?

We have sent ours to Devonia (in Devon).  The skins were collected for us from the abbatoir in early Dec.  Just waiting to hear from them.  It will be interesting to see how they compare with Fenland - who were excellent.

I've used these a couple of times, about £35 per skin plus postage.  Good service, no nasty chemicals used.

I was thinking about trying Devonia this year (just because they are cheaper), so would be interested to hear peoples opinions on them.
