Jan said: “We are really happy to be open in time for Christmas.

"We have missed all of our friends and customers from Long Crendon and surrounding villages.

"Last orders for local free range bronze turkeys and barn reared whites is Tuesday 18th December.”

"A huge thank you to Eddie Rixon for all his help and hard work, to Stuart’s Barr’s guys for doing a great job and to everyone else for being so patient and all the lovely comments we have received over the last couple of days”
