Christmas 2022

2022 is Food Float’s eleventh year delivering Etherley Farm’s wonderful Free Range Christmas Poultry to homes in Dorking and the surrounding area. We are offering their bronze turkeys, geese, ducks, chickens – including capons this year – pheasants and a multi-bird option. All slow grown and reared from day-old chicks in the farm’s glorious setting near Leith Hill, and humanely processed on site, dry plucked and expertly finished by hand.

Thank you to Etherley Farm for the stunning photos.

Etherley don’t deliver to the public so our partnership saves you the drive, and our delivery service is free of charge as always. This year’s delivery dates for Christmas poultry are Thursday 22 December and Christmas Eve.

All details are in this year’s Order Form which can be downloaded from the links below. The first link goes to a PDF form. Some people find the Word version – second link – easier to use. Paper copies are available at the Friday (St Martin’s Walk) and Saturday (High Street) stalls.

The Order Form also has details of sausagemeat and chipolatas from David at Bangers Galore in Horsham, Christmas marmalade, Boxing Day chutney and cranberry jelly – all home-made by Debbie in Newdigate, and the Food Float Christmas Veg Box!

We will acknowledge all orders received. If there is anything in your order form that isn’t clear to us, we will ask about it rather than make assumptions! Equally, please don’t hesitate to follow up if you are concerned or if you have questions before or after ordering as we would much rather hear from you than not.

Mince pies from Chalk Hills Bakery are available at the Friday and Saturday stalls and in the online shop, also Debbie’s Christmas jam and marmalade, Boxing Day chutney, and Membrillo.

We are taking pre-orders for our three hampers – Large, Cheese & Chutney, and Preserves – for home delivery and collection from the stall in December. Please visit our online shop for details.
