What is your busiest time of year as a producer and why? 
Our busiest times are Christmas for Game produce and the Summer months for Smoked Produce although both are available all year round. During the year we produce many different varieties of Wild Boar and Venison sausages and have seasonal varieties. eg at Christmas time we have Rudolphs Revenge (a spicy Venison sausage with Red Wine) and Santas Specials which are packed with Christmassy herbs and spices. It is not yet decided which we will have for the spring but there will certainly be at least 1 variety made with Wild Boar.
