About Rare Breeds
Using rare breeds, rather than intensively farmed commercial breeds, makes for the finest pedigree of meat in the UK. Rare breed farming methods mean the animals undergo minimal stress and mature naturally for longer. We source from small English farms, generally family run, who care as much as we do about animal welfare and the future of less commercial breeds.
Poultry & Game
All our chickens are fully free range, direct from farm and slow grown to maturity. With complete access to green pasture hedgerows and fed maize-rich additive free cereal they are free to roam come rain or shine.
We stock a great range of game seasonally throughout the year so please ask in-store if you have particular favourites!
All our lamb is fully free range and comes from small English farms who farm less intensively. Whenever we can, we also stock the wonderful Salt Marsh lamb that are grazed on salt marshes and have a very distinctive flavour and tender texture.
All our pork is fully free range - From our joints and pork sausages we make in the shop three times a week through to our pork mince. We work with small farms that breed, among others, Gloucester Old Spots, Saddlebacks, Large Blacks. They produce a succulent meat bursting with flavour as no additives or growth promoters are used.
We have an extensive range of cheese stocking both English and Continental varieties. Our cheese counter offers a wide selection of both organic and non organic ranges. Pop in, peruse and choose a delight ranging from your standard Cheddar Gorge to a beautiful Organic Stilton or be brave and go for a piece of Stinking Bishop!
The rest of our shop holds many a tasty morsel too! All our fresh vegetables and herbs are organic, we also offer a great choice of olives from our fresh olive bar and a fantastic range of essential and speciality foods to compliment your cooking.
