This weekend we are releasing even more koi at special prices
ALL koi in the outside ponds are Buy One Get One Free to clear
Pond 2 has some Nagoshi Hybrid Yamabuki Tosai over 30cm all for just £145
It will be first come first served with these koi and no points with this very special price.
Pond 3 The cheaper range of photographed tosai, Buy One Get One Free. Pay the FULL price for one tosai and get another cheaper or same priced koi for FREE. No points with this offer.
Ponds 4,6 & 7 Will remain at 20% discount, points can be used. We can also offer if you buy more than one, 30% members discount. There will be NO further reductions on these koi this year.
10% on dry goods in store, for those visiting we can offer 10% members discount on all goods.
On Monday 17th September we plan to harvest the 10k, We ask that ALL koi are collected by the 30th of September at the latest, ideally they should be collected on the 22nd & 23rd. We cannot offer an over winter or further growing service for these koi sorry. A little later than originally planned, but mainly due to the weather.
50,000 & 100,000gallon Harvest
If you have a Richdon Koi Calendar then you will see these dates set in October.
October 6th - 50k Harvest
October 7th - 100k Harvest
We have decided to do both harvests over a weekend, to aid those travelling.
As part of our ongoing bio-security procedures we ask EVERYONE attending this event to email us before hand, to book your place. We will have in place VERY strict measures for this weekend, and will prevent anyone who has not registered from viewing this event, so PLEASE get in touch via email (not phone or pm).
This weekend event is surely going to be one of the highlights of the koi calendar here in the Uk, and the closest you can get to a harvest in Japan.
All koi harvested will be placed in different ponds, not in the fish house.
We also ask that ALL koi from the 100k be collected by the end of October and NONE will be kept a further year or over winter.
More details nearer the time.
Richdon Harvest Celebration.
On Saturday 6th October we plan to go to a local curry house to celebrate our Harvest weekend
PLEASE get in touch if you are near by, or staying over for the weekend.
Deadline to letting us know you are coming along is the 16th September, again PLEASE by email, not by word of mouth, phone or Pm, makes it easier to organise this way.
We assure you the venue for this meal is one of the best, and I am sure a few bottle of wines will be courtesy of Richdon Koi for those attending!
CEFAS Clearance & Bio Security.
With all the problems going round of late, some of which are true, some of which are gossip.
We are proud to display our bio-security measure plan AND letter of clearance for a recent health check by CEFAS in our shop.
We don't want this to become a advertising spin, it is to PROVE the steps we here at Richdon take to safe-gaurd your hobby. Like stopping visiting of the 50k & 100k, whilst not good for business it protects hobbyists koi in these growing ponds. In fact we have some koi for sale in the 50k, but we are prepared to lose potential sales, rather than take any risks.
We also kindly ask that you DON'T visit other koi outlets before visitng our facility. I am sure other outlets would ask the same?
See you VERY soon
The Richdon Koi Team
