Our meat suppliers are chosen carefully for the quality of their meat and they do a fantastic job. We stock delicious, award-winning bacon, high-quality sausages and joints from local farms. We also have our own farm which we use to supply the shop with beef from our herd of Shorthorn beef cattle. The cows are grass-fed and well looked after, you can really taste the difference in the meat you are eating.

We bought our chickens from here, their keeper was knowledgeable, caring and friendly; no hard sell just good advice, reasonably priced. Nice layout, plenty going on, careful though you could easily spend a fortune.
