Our shop in Aldeburgh
We aim to combine the most natural, wonderful free-range and organic meat from our loyal local farmers with a progressive approach to butchery. Often this means using traditional and long-forgotten cutting and handling techniques, but it also means excellent service, interesting recipes and different or unusual cuts of meat.
In the shop we focus on seasonality and traditional breeds. Traditional-breed beef, mutton, local rose veal, seasonal game, organic lamb and hoggett and old English breeds of pork are all available. We also have a range of our own shop-specialities, including meat balls, traditional-breed beef burgers, wonderful pies, sausages (preservative-free to order) and unusual cuts that make great little meals for children or week-day suppers. Gerard has a special interest in rare-breed beef and is trying to resurrect old favourites like spiced potted beef, salted beef and brawn – with varying success!
But wherever possible we let the amazingly good meat speak for itself. Some of the meat available this season includes free-range Large Black pork from Oxburgh, Lincoln Red beef from Natasha Mann at Iken and Alde Valley lamb from Great Glemham.
We also have a fantastic cheese counter in the shop, selling the best artisan cheeses from the British Isles and Ireland. Local veg farmer Ru provides us with fresh seasonal vegetables and fruit, and we sell honey from Graham's hives in nearby Saxmundham, and apple juice made at Chatham Farm near Westleton.
Come into the shop, or order by phone or email if easier. We deliver locally and nationally.
