6.15 sounds reasonable have been paying 6.99 so will definately go on Sat. Cheers re abbatoir also had seen that one on Oaklandpigs list of recommended so planned to give them a call good to know they're recommended and close.

no worries, just brace yourself for rowleys - they're very good, but they can seem to some like "right old funny buggers".... I think it's a trait with abattoir-men. I don't think I've been there yet without them saying "the job's knackered - we probably wont be trading by next month", or similar.... they've been saying that for 5 years now, so they must be doing ok... ;)

Generally they need about 2 weeks notice for pigs, but if you want pigs killed end of nov or start of dec, you need to book at least 4 weeks early. you probably wont manage to get anything killed after the first week or so of december, as they get busy with the big boys, and their own produce.
