Cherry Tree Farm
The lovely people from Cherry Tree Farm contacted me recently about their new range of meats. Ever the type to be swayed by free food, I hastily agreed to receive some samples.
The samples arrived fairly quickly and I was impressed by the range. Turkey and chicken based, there are seven different types of meat available, all thinly sliced and all usable in a variety of dishes.
They also asked me if I fancied a challenge. “Can you make a meal in seven minutes?” they asked fairly rhetorically. I assume that this is to show just how versatile the meat is, and just how quickly it can be used in a meal.
I politely declined the challenge.
Although I have the kids at the weekends, during the week I’m generally out and about, and as my diary can be busy it leaves little time to actually plan meals. I did, however, say that I’d give an honest review of the food.
That said, I did manage to make a few decent meals.
Here’s where things started to go awry.
Coming towards the end of the month, with a fridge emptier than the wallet of a dad-of-four at Christmas time (trust me, that’s extremely empty), and payday still a few days away, I found myself looking for something to tide me over one evening.
I’d already eaten an evening meal, but had found myself unexpectedly home early.
So what did I do? I reached for the turkey slices. I told myself that I wanted to try a couple, just to get an idea of what to put down in the blog post.
Naturally, ten minutes later and the packet was gone. Whoops.
The same happened again a day or two later with the American-style chicken. So, although I cannot vouch for the easiness in including the meat in a meal, I can certainly verify that the meat is tasty and moreish.
The remaining meats were included mainly in sandwiches and rolls. Seeing as it’s all pre-cooked, it’s ideal for me and saves me time and effort in putting together a dish.
Better than that though is the clear pricing policy adopted by Cherry Tree Farm, with each pack costing either £1 or £2 so you know just how much it will set you back when you go looking for it.
