Packaging and Recycling

How will Hayes Meadow perishable produce arrive?

When you receive your Hayes Farm meats and perishable produce, they will arrive in one of our recycled cardboard boxes. We only use sustainably sourced and recycled cardboard. Once you open your box you will find a wool pouch

Why WOOL makes the best insulated packaging?

  • Excellent for ensuring produce arrives in the best condition – at the appropriate temperature and undamaged.
  • Proven to perform better than polystyrene – keeping chilled contents below 5°c for at least 24 hours
  • Reduces the number of ice packs required
  • Protective – snugly cushioning contents in transit
  • Environmentally friendly – wool is completely biodegradable and compostable

You’ll usually find an ice pack in your meat box. This can be stored in your freezer to use again.

Recycle & Up Cycle

All paper, card and cardboard can be recycled or composted. Our ice packs can be stored in the freezer to reuse.

Remove the wool from its plastic wrap (put the wrap in the recycling) the wool can then be re-used or composted.
