We are a friendly and traditional master butchers selecting and purchasing the whole animal before carefully preparing our meat ready for the kitchen. If you cannot find what you are looking for please contact us for availability as we can provide most cuts.
We have nurtured relationships over many years with the local meat industry and farms and all of our meat is fully traceable. If you would like details of the farm your meat came from please just ask us.
The roots of our expertise and business are grown from two generations of uncle and nephews. Butchery runs deep in the family.
Martin Wilkinson, our master butcher has many years of experience and knowledge. He works with great care to source only the best beast available considering welfare, traceability and tenderness before using his developed traditional butchery skills to create exceptional meat cuts and meat products.
Trevor Plane, our original master butcher and uncle to Martin began trading over 50 years ago and is still heavily involved in our business. His ethos has always been to source the best quality available regardless of price and this is still true to us today. Our prices vary according to stock and season and they are constantly checked with our customers’ pockets in mind. We work hard to ensure the balance between quality and price to provide consistent reliable value.
Carol Plane, wife to Trevor and auntie to Martin, has been devoted to the business since the beginning. Carol takes care of our orders and administration. Carol has regularly worked behind the counter, especially at busy times of year such as christmas, and knows many of our customers personally. It is this experience that enables her to keep everything running smoothly and efficiently behind the scenes.
Richard Wright is our other full time butcher. He is also Martin’s cousin and a nephew of Trevor and Carol. Besides Martin being able to pass on his knowledge they also make a great team, caring about the small details which set us apart from our competition.
Maureen also works with us in our shop. She has been a familiar face behind the counter for many years and is always ready to help our customers with their orders while keeping things running smoothly on Market days.
