Talton Butchery
There is now a good selection of venison in the freezers including a whole boned haunch of 4kg and a whole fillet 15 inches long. Both would be a real ‘wow’ factor at a special function. We are over our shortage of chicken and will have plenty of medium size this week. Our Old Spot Pork is top quality and plentiful from now forward. We are open every Friday and Saturday from 9am to 4pm. Please call if you have a specific order request on 01789 459140.

Bushcraft, Foraging and Eco-Therapy
We are delighted to be working with renowned outdoor specialist (Bsc Hons) and master herbalist Simon Birbeck to bring you a selection of bushcraft, survival, foraging and eco-therapy courses at Talton Mill. Simon has over 20 years experience in this field. Formerly a survival school co-ordinator who has worked with the Discovery Channel and The Bear Grylls Survival Academy and Young Survivor, Simon went on to set up UK Wild Adventures – the ‘go to’ company for experiencing the great outdoors!

All our workshops are suitable for both beginners and those with more outdoor experience.
