If you buy meat from our butchery counter, it will now come gift wrapped in butchers paper.  There are three reasons why our meat is wrapped in paper::

  1. The meat keeps better. While you can keep meat vacuum packed for longer, the meat does not taste as good.  With paper, the meat can breath and while it does lose moisture, it is the best method to preserve flavour and tenderness.
  2. No more plastic.  By wrapping the meat in butchers paper, we are doing away with vac pac bags and plastic bags.
  3. You get to unwrap your Farm Shop treat.  Each steak, chop or other cut of meat is now carefully wrapped by hand by our butchers, and tied with string.  We believe that we should be eating less meat, but when you do eat it, it should be a top quality treat.  Our venison, lamb and pork all comes from estates and farms on the South Downs and the beef is from Hampshire.  The quality is outstanding, due to high welfare and a natural diet, using heritage breeds.  When you reach into your fridge and unwrap your butchers gift, we hope you have the time to appreciate where it has come from.

So, what’s good at the moment?

Aged Steaks – We have a selection of steaks (sirloin, ribeye and fillet) that have been dry aged for 30 or 40 days.  This reduces the moisture content, resulting in a greater depth of flavour and incredibly tender meat.

Bespoke Burgers and Bangers –  We have different flavours weekly but let us know if you have a favourite flavour or combination and we can put a batch together for you.

Scott Free Range Pork – fantastic quality, succulent free range pork – BBQ one of these pork chops and you will be amazed at the quality, juiciness and taste, or go for a slow-cooked shoulder for pulled pork.
