MARKETS & COVID 19


WE HAVE TEMPORARILY STOPPED TAKING ORDERS.  Due to high demand we feel it is only sensible to pause accepting orders. If you would like an email when we resume please select Venison or Beef and scroll down to Products to enter your details. 
We won't be attending any farmers markets for a while.

DELIVERY ON
ORDERS OVER £100
Under £100 we charge £12 to cover the cost of the next day courier service. We have a minimum order value of £35 excluding delivery. Please see Terms page for details.

Where To Buy

One of our aims when we decided to build our own slaughterhouse and cutting plant on the farm was to minimise food miles. In line with this we set up Deer & Dexter to sell the venison and Dexter beef we produce either to customers living, holidaying or just passing through the beautiful county of Cumbria, and also by mail order.

To order please visit our online shops by clicking on the navigation bar. If you can't find the item you would like to buy please email us, we are adding items normally only sold at our farmers markets as quickly as we can!

Buying from the farm
We are happy to prepare orders for collection from the farm, but please do order first and agree a convenient time to collect as we don’t have a shop as such and it is a working farm. Orders can be placed using the online shop or email, if you want us to call you please leave a message and we'll get back to you. Due to Covid-19 we will have procedures in place so that orders can be collected in line with social distancing guidelines.

Changes due to Covid-19
Due to Covid-19 we have decided the sensible and responsible thing to do is not to attend any markets.  We need to protect our staff and ourselves, not just for our sake, our livestock depend on us.
As a result we will focus on supplying orders. These can either be sent out by courier, delivered locally, or, we hope, very soon we will have distribution hubs set up based on our various farmers markets. 
HOWEVER FOR THE TIME BEING, DUE TO THE HIGH LEVEL OF DEMAND, WE HAVE TEMPORARILY STOPPED TAKING ORDERS

For deliveries to Cumbria postcodes only we have reduced our carriage charge to £8 and the cut off point for free delivery has been reduced to £80.
