FRIDAY 4th DECEMBER is the date for our last Hampton Drive Thru Beef Day in 2020 and we have excellent supplies of prime Hampton beef for you to order. And on this special occasion we are delighted to be extending our Drive Thru so that brilliant local producers can also join us and will be ready to put gin, sparkling wine, cold pressed oil, Christmas puds and cakes, and illustrated books and cards into your car at the same time. This is one stop shopping of the highest order!
Pasture for Life accredited beef from our pedigree Sussex herd (slow growing, massive flavour, absolutely delicious) is available in all forms, sizes and cuts. Steaks for Christmas, a carvery rib joint to celebrate the middle of winter with a stunning red, stewing steak for a gravy filled pie, mince for a family lasagne are all available. Just make up your order from our comprehensive price list on the website www.hamptonestate.co.uk. Our 10 kg family bags with steak, joints, braising steak and mince hold everything for the Christmas holidays in one handy bag, or a 4kg bag is extremely convenient and holds the same ingredients but on a smaller scale.
Hampton Herby sausages and Hampton Beef Bangers are always popular, (especially we hear on the Boxing Day walk) and there are a very limited number of Hampton special beef pies available, but they will run out fast as demand always exceeds supply. Finally, for the adventurous there is always liver, kidney, tongue and heart to enjoy. The liver is astonishingly delicious fried with onions accompanied by good old mash.
We are delighted that our Drive Thru will be more than Hampton produce and you can leave the Estate loaded with local goodies from our friends and neighbours.
Nibbs Gin, based in Runfold have joined our December beef days since their formation and produce delicious elderflower and hop based gins (using Hampton raw ingredients).
Greyfriars Vineyard our neighbours on The Hog’s Back produce award winning English wines from their stunning site where they have just opened a new tasting room.
The Cold Pressed Oil Company from just over the Hampshire border (Crondall) have a variety of infused oils, dressings and sauces. Their truffle oil is a particular winner at Hampton.
Robyn Horsburgh is cooking up the most delicious home-made wholesome food all available to order in advance. Christmas cakes, boozy Christmas puds, mince pies and truffles plus loads more.
The ever popular Fine Feather Press (based at The Coach House, Hampton) produce the most imaginative nature books for the whole family including activity packs and sound books. Their new catalogue is just out and is a great source of presents.
Each of the above will be at the Drive Thru in a dedicated gazebo ready to put your order into your car whilst you have stopped for beef. Please order direct with the producer once you have checked out their website and details and arrange payment to them.
This link will take you to our Christmas Drive Thru Document and loads more details of what to order and how to do so. Thank you so much for supporting local producers in a very special way.
We really look forward to seeing everyone on 4th December for what promises to be a Drive Thru Spectacular.
One final thought, should you need wrapping paper and cards then Anne-Marie’s selections at www.thoselovelycards.co.uk is an excellent website and although Anne-Marie can’t be with us on the day she is always ready to send out orders by post.
Very best wishes
Bill and Bridget
