Our Meat

Beef - Our beef is Scotch Beef from traditionally reared herds of Aberdeen Angus and Hereford Cross, grass fed and sourced from a co-operative of farms in Aberdeenshire and the North East of Scotland. The beef is traditionally matured on the bone, minimum 28 days for enhanced tenderness and flavour. Customers tell us again and again it is the Best Beef they have tasted!

Lamb - We offer only British lamb, free range, naturally reared & grass fed, at its seasonal best. The Organic Salt Marsh season normally starts from June to late September - our lambs come from a coastal farm near Caernarfon in Wales and roam on fields washed by the sea in the winter which grow special grasses and herbs such as sea lavender, samphire, sorrel and thrift giving the lamb its distinctive, sweet, light flavour. This is Welsh Lamb at it’s very best.

Pork and Handmade traditional Sausages - Free range Pigs reared traditionally outdoors from a farm in Gloucestershire. The same pork meat is used in making a selection of our meaty and tasty sausages.

Poultry - Norfolk high quality free range chickens reared outdoors with plenty of room to exercise. We also offer organic whole chickens delivered to us on Thursdays for a family weekend meal to be savoured.

Seasonal - British Game season starts with Grouse from 12th August with Partridge, Mallard and Pheasant from September through to February.

Festive Food - to Order for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year - we provide a Christmas Brochure with full details for ordering near the time, keep an eye out around November.

We also offer a selection of cupboard essentials, all chosen to complement our meat, organic eggs from Kent to a range of jams and chutneys from “Rosebud Preservers” based in Yorkshire where they take care to use fresh, flavoursome ingredients by gathering and buying in season from local English growers.

Quality and complete traceability assured

We are committed to working with British farmers who care about the food they produce, our meat is sourced from small farms that can offer quality meat by naturally rearing and maintaining high animal welfare standards - a happy and healthy animal produces the best taste and quality of meat. The close working relationship we maintain with a select group of farms means we can ensure total traceability of our products and guarantee continued consistency of the highest quality.

We work in conjunction with a family run abattoir established for 70 years and ideally located to source from livestock co-operatives within Gloucestershire and surrounding Counties. Being local to the area where the livestock is reared ensures minimal stress in transit and reduces food miles.

We source all our meat from small farms committed to rearing animals naturally and to the highest standards of welfare

Our close links to the local farming community means that organic, quality free-range and rare-breed livestock can all be sourced to customer requirements. Additionally we offer the opportunity for you to buy your meat from someone who knows their subject. We can tell you the age of the animal, where it comes from and how long it has been hung. We can offer practical advice to help select the best cuts for the purpose and then prepare those cuts to your specification.
