In 2008, we converted a traditional stone-built cart shed, created with the help of grant-funding from Dorset Rural Renaissance, into our own butchery.  It started off as a processing unit so we could sell boxes of meat to family friends, and over the years it has become a full-time butchery that is fully licensed and authorized with all the relevant authorities. 

Most of the meat processed in our butchery is our own, with the need to source extra meat locally in busy times such as the summer.  We take our livestock to the nearest slaughterhouse in Sherborne (a small family-owned business also set on a farm) to minimise food miles and traceability of all carcasses is guaranteed.  Our large cold stores allow us to hang our meat on the bone before being butchered to maximize tenderness and flavour.

We are on site in the week cutting/packing meat, making sausages and burgers and curing/slicing our own hams and bacon.  We are located just off the road enroute to Kimmeridge with easy access and free parking, please see the map below for more details.


Thank you to our fabulous customers for your continued support!  We are able to serve you on the premises or from the front door, whichever makes you most comfortable, and local deliveries over £60 should be possible.  We are now accepting cash or card/smartphone payments.
