Wickedfood Earth online market 29 November

Hi all

Thank you for the great support for our first Wickedfood Online Market. Due to its great success, we plan a further 3 online shopping experiences for the year,  Saturday 29 November, 13 and 20 December. We are in the process of developing an interactive online store. This however takes time to ensure that it works well as well as being secure. In the interim we are working on a very simple system where you place an order from the items listed below, by simply copying and pasting whatever you would like to order. We will then invoice and reserve the relevant products on your order ( Please note that should we not receive payment with in 24-hour of sending out your invoice, we will simply cancel the order.)

Products available -  Saturday 29 November

(Please ensure that all orders are in no later than this Sunday 23th November.)

  • Pork - We have both fresh whole pigs and frozen pork cuts available. The fresh pigs weigh in at ±28kg each, slaughtered, and are available whole at R60 per kg, (we will cut it up for you into shoulders, rib roasts, belly and leg roasts). Frozen pork cuts available are as follows:
    • shoulders (including neck) – ±3kgs – R200
    • rib roast – ±2.2kg – R180
    • fillets – ±200g – R45
    • belly – ± 1kg – R75
    • legs – ±3kg – R240
  • Wild boar -We have a few wild boar available. Once slaughtered, these animals are skinned and therefore do not have a skin for crackling. The meat however is full of flavour and very lean.  They weigh in at ±32kg each and are available either whole at R1 800 each, (we will cut it up for you into shoulders, rib roasts, belly and leg roasts) or available in individual cuts as priced below.
  • shoulder – ±3,4kgs – R205

  • Stew packs – ±6 x 1kg packets – R50 per packet

  • Suckling pig - We have 2 x half suckling pigs available, each weighing in at ±6,5kgs @ R500 each. We have dressed these and are perfect  to roast  on the braai, as you would do a butterflied leg of lamb. We have whole free-range suckling pigs at R80/kg – see here  for more information. With Christmas coming up, suckling pig is a perfect alternative. The smaller ones roast perfectly in an oven. While the larger ones, are perfect for a spit braai. We have the following sizes available at the moment:
    • Small  ±8kg each
    • Medium  ±12kg each
    • Large  ±16kg each
  • Pedi lambPedi sheep are indigenous to our area. Not only do they have a fantastic flavour, but because they  are indigenous, there are incredibly hardy which means that we do not need to dose them on a regular basis with antibiotics as is the case with many exotic sheep breeds. We will be slaughtering one young ram early next week. They come in at around 10 kg slaughtered weight, and will be selling it at R995. Included in the price will be cutting the lamb up,  packaging and labelling.
  • Dairy– our cream and milk comes from Quiet Mountain’s jersey herd. All products are made from unpasteurized organic milk.

Wickedfood Earth online market 29 November

Wickedfood Earth new online market

Hi all

The Wickedfood Earth market has been postponed due to the fact that Mike’s back collapsed and he had to have major back surgery. He is now thankfully out of hospital but is laid up on his back for at least the next six weeks. Thank you to all of you who have sent him good wishes.

After much deliberation, we have decided that we would however, like to continue with our market concept, but in a new format – you place an order, we process and invoice, you collect on a Saturday between 09h00 and 11h00. (Remember to bring along your cool box).

With regards to the meat, unfortunately Mike is unable to stand to do intricate butchering, and we have therefore decided that we will sell whole carcasses only, broken down into major cuts – see below. We have to work approximately ten days in advance, ie you need to place an order by this Saturday (8th November) so that we can then book the animals in at the abattoir, send them in for slaughter the following Monday and collect and portion the following Friday, for collection by you the Saturday immediately after. Due to this fact, we will only know the exact cost of the animal, once we have portioned it.

Each week from Wednesday 12th November, we will be sending out a newsletter listing available products. Should you wish to order, we would ask that you send us a reply when we will then send you a detailed order form. Once we receive this order form we will process it and invoice. Please bear in mind that for many of the products, there are limited quantities and therefore, we will allocate on a first-come first-served basis.
Once invoiced, should we not receive payment within 24 hours, your order will automatically lapse and the products you have ordered will go back into stock.

Products available for next Saturday 15th November  

(Please ensure that all orders are in no later than this Saturday 8th November.)

Porkers – a porker is a pig weighing in at anything between 20kg and 50kg. This is the normal size of pig processed for butcheries.

We have 4 available at between 30kg and 40kg each, @ R60 per kg (packaged weight). We will break them down and vacuum them into the following cuts:

  • Leg roasts – 2 (perfect for slow roasting, or as well as butterflied and cooked on a kettle braai).
  • Bellies – 2
  • Loin chop roasts – 2 (we can further split each one in half again. We unfortunately do not have the facilities to cut these into individual chops. You can either roast these on or off the bone).
  • Shoulders – 2 (once again perfect for slow roasting, alternatively great de-boned and cubed for stews. This cut also includes the neck, one of the tastiest cuts, to roast or kettle braai).
  • Odd bits – 1 head, 1 tail, 4 hocks and 4 trotters.

Suckling pigs – retailing at anything between R90/kg and R120/kg, we are giving you proper free-range suckling pigs at only R80/kg for this week. With Christmas coming up, suckling pig is a perfect alternative. The smaller ones roast perfectly in an oven. While the larger ones, are perfect for a spit braai. All those ordering suckling pigs will also automatically receive detailed recipes on how to cook them.
