I ordered 2 bulk bags late on a Monday evening - delivered early Thursday morning with pinpoint accuracy exactly where i needed them placed. I was expecting to have to pay a bit extra for delivery as i live just a little over 30 miles from the farm but it was all included - so really pleased and will definitely use again. Thanks.
