If you have sms’d, emailed or phoned through your order we will print you an invoice and deliver it with your order on the day it is delivered.
Why Is There A Cut Off Time?
We need to give ourselves enough time to place our order with our supplier to ensure that they order enough stock for the following day. This ensures we are able to provide you with the freshest produce possible.
How Do I Know How Much Milk To Order?
Because we order from our suppliers the day before we deliver to you, the goods are as fresh as they can possibly be. What this means is that you typically will receive milk with a use-by date at least 7 days after the delivery date, meaning you can use us to deliver a weeks worth of milk to you. We do however recommend that at the time of ordering you order 1L to 2L more than what your family would ordinarily consume in a week so that you can be confident you don’t run out. As we grow we hope to be able to increase the frequency of our deliveries to at least twice a week, but this first needs us to get more trucks on the road.
Receiving Your Delivery
We will deliver your order between 13:00-18:00. If no one will be home please let us know so that we can make another plan or you can advise where you would like us to leave your order. If you choose for us to leave it somewhere please make sure that you have a cooler box for the dairy products, particularly during the warmer months of the year.
Cancelling an Order
You can cancel your order so long as it is cancelled 24 hours before your booked delivery day (ie before midday on the day before delivery date ). You can do this by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org or you can sms us on +27 (0) 64 757 9142
