(And we all really enjoyed the sausages we bought and the hog roast). Thankfully we were lucky enough to return to Devon this week for a holiday and made your shop our first trip to stock up on sausages to last us the duration of our stay. We popped in yesterday to buy some more to bring home, and bought 50 sausages and can report that we all made it back to Wishaw in Scotland. The grill is on and cooking lunch. We will definitely be in touch once our supplies have ran dry to purchase more of your incredible products.” Mark, Lorna and Grace.

“I just wished to say a HUGE “Thank You” to all of you who gave us such a great day out at your Farm yesterday.  I was in the “Morning Group of the W.I” and actually won the ‘Duck’ in the Raffle, about which I was delighted!!!  It was all very well organised, very informative and QUITE AN EYE-OPENER I think for all of us!!!  And those dear little piglets …….. Just SO sweet!!!!    And the Hog Roast ………… was GORGEOUS!!!!  Thank every one of you for giving us such an enjoyable day!!  And ……. we were SO lucky with the weather too, although it was cold, the rain DID keep away for us in the “Morning Group” but not so much for the “Afternoon Group”!!!   Many, many thanks to every single person who was ‘on site’ yesterday.  Thank you” Di Awcott, Tedburn St. Mary W.I.

“Just a short email to thank you for the efforts of you and your staff towards our wedding on Friday. The food was superb, the only complaint was from someone who didn’t eat pork but wanted meat – you just can’t cater for all tastes! It was a pretty frenetic evening, but your staff dealt with everything thrown at them with good humour and plenty of enthusiasm. I really cannot fault your service at all and will recommend you to anyone who asks. Please pass on our personal thanks to your staff who helped on the night and back at your place in advance.

We do hope to use your company again in the future.” Hannah & Paul Timperley

“I was sorry to miss you yesterday as I would have liked to tell you how thrilled we were with all the catering. As you will have noticed, there was more than enough food, though I think that the hot weather had a lot to do with how much people ate. I gather, to my son-in-law’s disappointment, that there was not a pork pie left! The hog roast too was delicious, though I very nearly missed having some as I was so busy talking. It was so nice to have such helpful, smiling and accommodating staff.” Alison

“Having a family lunch on Easter Day I chose a leg of pork from Kenniford knowing it would be delicious – and it was absolutely so!  I had been hoping to have a little left over for after they’d all gone but it wasn’t to be; we ate the lot.  To be honest, I’ve never tasted pork like it.  Not only is the flavour wonderful but the fat is negligible and the crackling absolutely melt in the mouth.  Thank you.” Ann Robertson

“I am writing to congratulate and thank you and your staff for such superb catering for our wedding.  You’ve no idea how relieved I was to return from our beach blessing to find the hog roast set up and champagne and canapes being offered to our guests. The staff were very neat and tidy with ironed aprons. They were pleasant and very attentive towards our guests without being intrusive.  The canapes were plentiful and delicious. The hog was perfectly cooked and carved.  The vegetarians and ‘chicken people’ were also very happy with their food. We have had many positive comments about the hog roast – many guests saying it was the best one they had been to.  It was truly delicious (especially the crackling) and you weren’t wrong when you said there would be plenty for freezing.  The ladies were wonderful at packaging all the leftovers while Paul and I were busy circulating amongst our guests – before we knew it they had packed everything away without a fuss. We would certainly recommend you to anyone who even hints that they are thinking of having a hog roast! Thank you once again.” Paul and Tracy Brown

“Now that things have settled back down to some kind of normality, we are e-mailing to say thank you for such a great hog roast. The pig itself tasted really superb and many people commented so. To top it off the staff were really nice and very friendly to the guests. It was a great day and everything went to plan. We had a slight down pour during the serving of the hog roast, but your staff quickly set to the situation and brought some of the roast in side to serve during this time. Anyway, I hope all went well from your perspective and we would be very happy to recommend you to future clients, in fact we already are! To summarise our thoughts ‘it was faultless!’ All the best and thanks again,” Falk and Hannah Koeller

I have lost count of the number of people who have said that it was the best pork they have ever tasted and that the crackling was AMAZING. I’ve heard similar reports on the halal lamb and indeed all comments on the catering offer high praise indeed. Your business is to be highly recommended and I will be passing on the word, as will the guests who have all been hugely impressed. Please would you also pass on my thanks to your staff They were professional, calm, committed and reassuring throughout the event, worked incredibly hard and noticed just what was needed. The young lasses who served at the drinks reception and finished preparing the canapes were absolutely splendid – quietly competent, patient, responsive and efficient, as were the bar staff too. They worked later than expected as timescales slipped and were very concerned to not leave until everything was done. A truly remarkable operation and very much appreciated. With very best wishes to you all” Tish
