2018 has kicked off and our Good Meat Club continues, trying to keep the focus on excellent local, free-range, grass-fed and - wherever possible - organic meat, as well as woefully forgotten or hard-to-find cuts. We continue to strive to be the link between our customers and the very best small-scale and like-minded farmers in the region. It’s always exciting to find new farmers to work with, like Karen O’Malley at Chestnut Farm near Hingham; and our ‘Iken Old Cow’ partnership with Yarn Hill farm, on the banks of the River Alde, is stepping up as demand for this delicious traditional-breed beef grows.
This February brings the very serious matter of the Salter & King Aldeburgh Marmalade Competition 2018. Over the years we butchers have been the lucky recipients of lots of lovingly made jars of golden chunks so this year we decided to have a marmalade-making competition. More details below, but it is open to all – from tots to great-grannies; there’s a gammon (and a cup…) in it for the winner; and all proceeds from sales of our Seville Oranges will go to the very worthwhile Alde and Ore Estuary Trust. Good luck – there’ll be fierce competition and it could get nasty….
Hope to see you in the shop soon,
With best wishes,
