At the heart of everything that Rhug does is Lord Newborough’s passion and commitment to an organic lifestyle. He feels lucky that he has a team around him that share his beliefs and passion and recognise the importance of sustainable farming.

The Sales team are based in the Estate Office and includes: Joan Redmond, Louise McNutt, Sarah Cowell and Charlotte Holliday.

We would like to introduce you to Louise. Louise McNutt has worked at Rhug since 2009 in the sales team. 

The build up to Christmas is definitely the busiest time for Louise as she manages the sale of Rhug's Award winning Turkeys and Geese.

Louise says, "We actually start preparing for the Christmas campaign in the spring and throughout the summer. The orders usually start trickling in around September and things get busier and busier from then on. By December, we’re flat out dealing with customer enquiries, collating the order to ensure everything is spot on for the all-important Christmas deliveries."

Having worked for Rhug for almost 10 years Louise says that she has been speaking to some of Rhug's deli customers twice a week for nearly ten years and enjoys the snippets of gossip or silly in jokes that develop.

Louise said, "Maintaining those relationships is really enjoyable. It’s the same with lots of our Turkey and Goose customers. Many of them prefer to call with their order every year rather than just ordering it online as it is part of their Christmas tradition. There are some lovely characters that I look forward to speaking to and some that throw in a strange request to keep us on our toes."

Before heading to work in the morning Louise enjoys joining other crazy members of staff for a swim in Llyn Tegid. She is also a trained masseuse and reflexologist and works from home two nights a week specialising in muscular pain relief, stress relief and relaxation techniques.

If you would like to speak to Louise directly to order your Christmas Turkey or Goose over the phone she would love to hear from you. You can telephone: 01490 413000 during office hours.
