Our terms and conditions will apply when you place an order.
Orders. We can only supply to UK addresses. A delivery date for your order to Fiends Fell Sheep will be confirmed by telephone or email, we aim to do this within 48 hours of receipt. Please check they are available first.
We only butcher annually in autumn at the end of October or early November when the Hogs (Sheep aged 18 months to 2 years) are at their prime. They are then hung for 8 days to develop their flavour.
Delivery days – We do not guarantee a delivery time on our standard delivery service. Morning and Saturday deliveries can be arranged with a surcharge.
Courier Delivery Charges – These charges assume the delivery address is in mainland Britain. The delivery charge is £25. £20 for next day courier and £5 for reusable packaging and ice sheets.
If you are local we are happy to meet you to deliver (if we can agree a time and place), you will need a cold box and ice packs to ensure your meat is kept cold, if you are going to be a long time getting home, then we can provide packaging and ice for £5.
Ordering – we sell in half hogget or whole hogget, however if available we may be able to supply a smaller ‘starter pack’. Our butcher is happy to cut and pack to suit your needs. We have an order template for you to choose from.
Payment – currently through cash or paypal.
Not going to be home – the courier service we use, APC ( – a national network of small local courier firms), will leave the parcel in a safe place and don’t require a signature. It is therefore essential that you provide details of where the box can be left if you are not home when they call, this may be with a neighbour, but could also be in the garage, a shed in the garden, the recycling bin under the hedge, anywhere provided its practical for the courier and you are confident it is secure and sheltered from the weather, particularly the sun. Ideally, we’d also like a telephone number both we and the courier can use.
Please, if your delivery has not arrived by 4pm, call us.
Refunds – If you are not satisfied please contact Fiends Fell Sheep within 24 hours of receipt. Refunds will only be given if we are notified immediately. A refund will not be offered if the courier attempted to deliver on the agreed date to the address provided and delivery was not possible.
