Yesterday morning the news broke of Irish Pork product recalls.
As our customers are aware we are sellers of the following Pork Products from Ireland, North & South.

Brady Family Ham

Unfortunately due to the problems, the Basketsgalore Group will not be including these products in its Christmas Gift Baskets and hampers this year.
As of 8pm last night these products were withdrawn from sale on the following websites;

www.basketsgalore.ie

Wicks Manor Farm are members of Tastes of Anglia in England. We are delighted to be offering their products albeit unfortunately in such unusual circumstances.

About Wicks Manor Farm:

We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our customers by these late product substitutions. However, bearing in mind the situation in Ireland regarding Irish Pork products and the fact that it will take at least one week to introduce new pork in Ireland, Basketsgalore felt there was no alternative other than to act now and switch to British Pork products.

We chose Manor Farm on the basis of their quality, Gold Taste Awards and Membership of Tastes of Anglia. You can read about them at.
www.wicksmanor.co.uk/aboutus.htm
They are a real working farm, which is also a B&B.
They produce quality pork made from pigs reared in large open straw pens at Wicks Manor Farm. Products include pork joints and cuts, smoked bacon and ham, pork and apple burgers and sausages in many varieties. The pork is fully traceable and all animals live under the strict welfare regulations of Farm Assured British Meat. All pigs are fed with wheat and barley grown and milled on the family farm.
