All our beef is ethically sourced and comes from local farms. We know all the farmers we buy from personally and all meat is hung on our premises for maximum maturity and taste. Fed on a healthy grass and cereal-based diet, our beef is produced from our carefully chosen farmers and each cut is carefully prepared to ensure that it is suitable for its intended use.

Food For Thought

What is a Craft Butcher?

A craft butcher displaying the logo assures you of having the very best, traceable, traditionally prepared meat available. Meat from a Craft Butcher is sourced, slaughtered and prepared locally and so reduces Food Miles (helping our carbon footprint), and also eliminating stress to the animals. Transporting animals long distances before slaughter has a detrimental effect on the meat quality. By supporting your local Craft Butcher you can be sure of the highest quality produce.

CraftButchers are trained and are the best place to find value and quality in the current economic situation. Your Craft Butcher respects meat as a quality product and will happily provide cookery tips and storage advice to his customers. Get to know your Craft Butcher. This way, he or she will learn what you like and will always try to have it for you.

There is an old saying

“keep your business in town if you want to keep your town in business”

So buying locally contributes to the local economy and also ensures the quality of the meat is far superior.
