Product FAQs

Where is Farmer's Choice meat sourced from?

We take our produce from only the best free range farms that meet our high standards and allow their animals to live in conditions we approve of. We want our animals to be raised fairly with freedom to roam in the open air when they want to. Allowing them to live in a happy environment is better for them and for us. For more information on the farms that produce our meat, take a look at the Our Farms page.

Why do you emphasise 'free range' meat and not 'organic'?

Although organic food is always an advantage, organically raised animals could still be reared indoors rather than in the more natural outdoor conditions that is always the case with free range. We prefer our animals to be raised outside in their natural environment and being able to enjoy all the benefits that it brings, so this is why we emphasise the 'free range' aspect of our meat. Organic is often seen as superior to free range because of its higher price; but we prefer to offer free range meat that has been raised in high standard, natural conditions, and if it also happens to be organic then we regard that as a bonus.

Should I pay by monthly payments?

We think it's best to set up a monthly payment with us so that you can easily include Farmer's Choice within your monthly budget. It also helps us to keep our regular payments with our farmers, which is better for them as they don't have to rely on fluctuating prices when selling their meat at market.

What if I don't want to buy meat or fish every month?

No problem. Our customers usually order every couple of months but find paying monthly better because they can easily budget for it. This may mean you will be in debit or credit some months, but this usually averages out a couple of payments accumulated in the summer months can help during the colder, and festive, season. You can make an order whenever you need or want; debt is extended to three times the value of your payments, plus or minus any credit or debit in the account.
