Update for Customers April 9th

Hello to all our Customers and Current Update.

This weekend we should have been welcoming all our customers and friends to our regular 'special' day which this month coincides with Easter. However none of us expected the world to change as it has and therefore sadly we won't be able to share a cup of tea and a chat with you up here at Ellis's Hill Farm.

We are still able to supply  sausages, bacon and eggs. We also have a few cuts of pork (subject to availability). Arrangements for making orders and collecting produce are detailed in our post below dated 26th March.  Please do not hesitate to contact us on the numbers provided on that post if there is anything we can do. We will try to help if at all possible.

We hope to see all again at some time in the not too distant future, in the meantime, Happy Easter!

Customer Information - Arrangements During Coronavirus Crisis

Coronavirus (Covid 19)

Customer Information and Advice

These are difficult times for all of us. Last week we took the decision to close the tearoom and limit contact with our customers. We still have available a limited amount of stock on a daily basis. We have sausages, bacon and some port joints at present. Supplies of eggs are limited. We are very keen to help our customers get through this crisis.

It is very important to us that we ensure that our staff and customers Stay Safe
We are currently Vacuum Packing sausages, and bacon. This is a sealed packaging process, which keeps the meat in good condition but equally important, it allows customers to wash the packs before opening them thereby minimising the risk of transferring the virus. We will also be freezing products after packaging so as to extend their availability.

Customers can make orders over the telephone or through our Facebook page. We will then prepare the orders for collection from the farm gate. Payments can be made by BACS in order to minimise contact. Our opening hours remain the same, Wednesday to Saturday 10 AM to 4 PM. (We are not opening on Sundays during the crisis) On arrival at the farm gate please sound your car horn, ring the bell or simply call out and we will come out. If by any chance you get no response call (07795) 010820.

Please remember the social distancing rules and keep a safe distance from our staff and other people.

In this way we hope to ensure that we continue to serve our loyal customers whilst caring for the safety of everyone.

If you are one of the people who are self isolating and have nobody to collect  produce for you please contact us and we will try to assist you with a home delivery if possible.

Please call or message us through the contact details below

November Open Day & First Pre Christmas Event

Saturday 9th November Open Day

November Open Day - Christmas Taster

It always seems a little odd to be promoting Christmas already especially this weekend when we are all remembering those who gave their lives in the two World Wars which left their mark on the 20th century.

However traditionally we have always launched at Christmas programme on the second Saturday of November and already many of our customers have been asking about what's on offer this year at Arborfields oldest farm shop.

Now that bonfire night is out of the way some of the big stores have been broadcasting their Christmas adverts for 2019. Now it's our turn, Wysipig at Ellis's Hill Farm is getting ready to put all of its Christmas goodies on display. But you simply don't have to take a chance on what you buy because this Saturday,the you have the opportunity to come up and taste some of our Christmas offerings, you can try our wonderful turkeys, gammons both smoked and green and of course our exciting range of seasonal sausages. Kevin Turner our master butcher will be revealing his Christmas flavours for this year, already he has told some customers that he will again be making his sage and onion and chestnut speciality (much to many customers relief as it has been a true favourite in the past!)

Besides trying the samples we are have a full list of products available for Christmas and customers will be able to put in their orders on the day or of course go back home to think about it and call or email us later. As usual we will be offering a free delivery service. Kevin will be able to give you all the advice you need to help make your Christmas day meal really special and wow your guests with local food from Arborfield's oldest farm shop.

Besides Christmas specials we will have our usual pulled pork rolls available for lunch as well as cakes and teas at our ‘Original Woodland Tearoom’ in The Coombes.We have a selection of  traditional board games which you are welcome to play whilst enjoying your food. We also have some gifts on offer as well as secondhand 'bits and pieces'

The shop is open from 10 AM to 4 PM this Saturday and every week from Wednesday to Sunday inclusive, for more information please do not hesitate to call us on (07795) 010820 or simply drop us an email message through our Facebook page. We are located on the B3030, the Sindlesham Road halfway between Winnersh and Arborfield, look for the big yellow farm shop signs at the bottom of our track.

We look forward to welcoming you on Saturday.

October Special Day

Farm Shop Special Day

 Well it really is October the weather is now very autumnal, strong winds yesterday and the prospect rain! But as we put the tables and chairs out for today's event things we find its actually quite a bit warmer than one would expect out there, a great day for a walk looking for sweet chestnuts and conkers.

Then afterwards why not join us at the farm shop for coffee, tea, bacon baps, or even indulge for lunch with one of Kevin's wonderful pulled pork rolls.

 We don't like to be talking about Christmas before bonfire night has been gone but Kevin has been working on his list of unique sausage flavours for this years offering. Come and have a chat with him about it and if you've got your own favourite recipes let him know and he might just will make some. The Christmas taster day is the November special which is on Saturday the 9th. We will have samples of our turkey, gammons, sausages and all of the other  favourite Christmas goodies that we do.

For any further information please call (07795) 010820 and don't forget we are  open from Wednesday to Sunday inclusive from 10 AM to 4 PM
