Our third-party courier, UK Mail, is requested to deliver pre-12 noon on your delivery day. We cannot be held liable for any delivery delays.

Once your parcel has been collected from our Packhouse you will receive a text or email notifying you that your order is on its way and it will be delivered the next day. The next morning you will receive a text or email notification informing you of an hour delivery window for when your parcel will be delivered.

Do I need to be at home?

You do not need to be at home but please let us know where to leave the delivery when you place your order. If your plans change and you cannot be at home at the hour delivery window provided you can interact with the courier and inform them directly where to leave your order.

All orders are left at the buyer’s risk. Please note we recommend orders are transferred immediately to a freezer upon delivery as no refunds or replacements will be provided to product that is defrosted.

Do you deliver outside of the UK?

Due to our products all being frozen we are unable to deliver our perishable frozen fruit through our usual courier service. If you are interested in pallet quantities to be delivered outside of the UK please contact us on enquiries@windmillhillfruits.co.uk or call 01989 730229 with details of your order and address, we will endeavour to find a solution.

When will I receive my order? Can I choose my delivery day and time?

When you place your order, you can select the most convenient delivery date. We deliver on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays (additional costs apply for Saturday delivery). Orders can be placed up to 11.30am for next day pre-noon delivery. We will do our best to accommodate late order requests where possible, please call us on 01989 730229.

How is the order delivered?

We use the third-party courier UK Mail who will deliver your order pre-12 noon on your selected delivery day. The frozen fruit is packed in polystyrene boxes with dry ice (CO2) to ensure it remains frozen in transit. Please transfer immediately to a freezer upon delivery. We cannot provide any refunds or replacements for orders which are not immediately transferred to the freezer to prevent defrosting. Dry ice is extremely cold and should be handled with care when disposing.

When will I know my order has been dispatched? Can I track my order?

A confirmation text or email will be sent as soon as the order has been dispatched from our Packhouse. Within this message our courier will provide you with tracking details so you can follow your delivery or provide extra information if you are not going to be available to accept the delivery. On the morning of your delivery you will receive a text or email from our courier with an hour window of when this order will be delivered.

I live locally, can I collect from your site?

Yes! Please tick ‘collection from site’ when you place the order. Your order will be ready for collection 24 hours from order confirmation. Please let us know when you expect to collect the order within ‘special instructions’. We will not pack your order in polystyrene boxes with dry ice therefore can provide you with a 20% discount with zero delivery charge – no matter how much you order!

Of course! When you are at the checkout page and completed your billing address you will see a tick box labelled “Use my Billing Address Above”. Untick this box and another field will appear where you can enter a different address for delivery.

Why choose Frozen?

We believe frozen is best for a number of reasons –

  1. Healthy and Nutritious.

    All our fruit is frozen from fresh so all the value is locked in…frozen in time you could say! When we freeze the fruit nothing is added nor taken away therefore when it is defrosted it is still as healthy and nutritious as the day it was picked and frozen.

  2. Better Flavour.

    Freezing fruit means it can be picked at its optimum ripeness. The mature sun-ripened fruit is then quick frozen within hours of being picked to lock in the bursting flavour.

  3. Less Food Waste.

    The fruit in your freezer will last longer than fruit in your fridge!

  4. No preservatives.

    The freezing process is a natural way to preserve food therefore no artificial preservatives are required to achieve an extended shelf life.

  5. Availability

    Freezing fruit will enable seasonal fruit to be enjoyed throughout the year.
