MacFarlane Pheasants’ Food Division Gears Up for The Holidays!

On October 24, 2019 in Archive by spope

The middle of October is the start of the busiest time of year for our Food Division. By November, our orders increase from a few gift packs per week to a few dozen per week. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we send out between 30 and 50 gift packs per week! We are gearing up for the holidays for our customers and hope you will think of MacFarlane Pheasants and our gift packs when you think of delicious food for your friends, family, and employees.

Planning for the busiest time of year in the Food Products Division takes many MacFarlane employees. Shayne Noller, Food Products Manager is thankful to the many individuals who make every day a positive adventure. It all begins with the excellent work of the crews that raise our pheasants.

He also gives much-deserved credit to the production team in the processing room which is headed up by Luz. His amazing team processes 4500-7500 birds each week. Isaac, the new packaging/shipping/receiving employee has only been here 10 months but does an excellent job. Karina Haas, the Food Products Account Manager, took over a year ago and she is doing an incredible job. The success of our Food Products Division is a team effort.

Pheasant is a very traditional American game bird. It is extremely flavorful. If you don’t like to cook poultry, many of our customers love our smoked birds. It is a unique and thoughtful gift for any food lover or sportsperson. You can customize your own basket with the variety of products in our catalog and we ship via ground or two-day delivery, depending on where you are located. We always ship with dry ice and gel packs to ensure a safe arrival. We’ll even add a customized note or card.

Our classic dressed birds are always a hit. We have a free cookbook with many ideas for preparing them. It is always a popular choice for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. We also have some new brat flavors. They are competitively priced and healthier than traditional pork brats. The flavors we have tested and selected for this year should please any palate and are a great addition to tailgates and dinners.

Our gift packs usually include samplings of our products. One of my favorites is a smoked pheasant and a pheasant pot pie. Many of our baskets also include various jellies, sauces, or other condiments we sell in our Retail Store. Gift cards are available for customers who want to let their recipients choose their favorites. We also distribute turkeys that have been ordered from Wolff’s Bellefontaine Farms, a contract grower we work with, who provide the turkeys.

Please place your orders soon for this year’s gift packs or for your holiday dinners, so we can be sure you receive your order when you want it! If you prefer gift cards, that works for us too. Feel free to email us at [email protected] or call us at 1-800-345-8348 for more information about ordering. If you would like to receive our weekly email promoting our gift packs, you can sign up at to receive them. You might receive discounts or coupons in these emails, so be sure to open them.
