Our butchery is a converted stone-built cart shed, created with the help of grant-funding from Dorset Rural Renaissance and is fully licensed and authorized with all the relevant authorities. We use the nearest slaughterhouse in Sherborne (a small family-owned business also set on a farm) to keep "food miles" down to a minimum and traceability of all carcasses is guaranteed. Our large cold stores allow us to hang our meat on the bone before being butchered (lamb up to a week, pork 5 days, beef up to 4 weeks and venison up to 5 days) to maximize tenderness and flavour.
Firstly, we'd like to thank our fantastic customers for your continuous support at this time! We have been overwhelmed with orders and enquiries, and we are attempting to fulfill as many as possible.
We are still operating during the COVID-19 outbreak, including serving only from the door on site, delivering regularly to our shops and a few 'to-door' deliveries when possible. As we are located on a roadside farm, we are very isolated so feel comfortable in serving the public and taking card payments from the door, minimising all forms of contact. We recommend phoning before travelling to place an order to minimise your time waiting outside the butchery. Deliveries may be possible but our time is stretched and we ask it's at least over £50, otherwise as previously stated you may safely visit the butchery to pick up.
Mark and his team of butchers are on site in the week cutting/packing meat, making our own sausages and burgers and curing/slicing our own hams and bacon. We are just off the road on the way down to Kimmeridge Bay with easy access and ample parking, see the map below for more details on how to find us.
