How do I convert Kilograms to Pounds and Ounces?
Often older recipe books will have measurements in pounds (lbs) and newer recipe books will use kilograms (kg). Many of our customers still think in pounds and ounces however it is now only legal for us to sell products in kilograms. Here are some useful conversions to the nearest full gram or ounce.
Pounds and Ounces converted to the nearest gram.
1lb = 16oz = 454g
1/2lb = 8oz = 227g
1/4lb = 4oz = 113g
Kilograms converted to the nearest ounce.
1kg = 1000g = 2lb 3oz
1/2kg = 500g = 1lb 2oz
1/4kg = 250g = 9oz.
How should meat be stored?
Please store all meats in a fridge.
When you get your meat home it is a good idea to remove it from the packaging so that air can circulate around the meat while it is chilled in the fridge.
Raw food and ready to eat food should be kept apart at all times and if possible raw meat should be stored in the bottom area of the fridge not touching any other foods to reduce the risk of cross contamination. If this isn’t possible due to space, it would be a good idea to store the meat in a sealed plastic container.
It is recommended that a fridge should have a cold running temperature between 1-4°C.
How long will it keep fresh?
Although some meats will stay fresh longer than others, if you are unsure please follow this guide.
Cured meats - approximately 7 days
Home Cured Sliced Bacon - approximately 2-3 weeks
Sausages - approximately 3 days
Steaks, Roasting Joints, Chops approximately 3-5 days
Poultry - approximately 2 days
Mince, Stew, Burgers - approximately 2-3 days.
Can we vacuum seal meat?
Most meats can be vacuum sealed which will increase the amount of time it will stay fresh in the fridge however sausages and burgers will often lose their shape and so it is not recommended. Please ask at the shop for individual requests.
Can I order online?
We do not have an online ordering system at the moment. If this is something you might be interested in for the future please contact us to let us know.
We are able to take orders over the phone or by email and have these ready for you to collect in store. Delivery can often also be arranged.
Do you deliver?
See our delivery page.
Is your meat traceable?
We purchase the whole animal before carefully preparing our cuts ready for the shop counter. Purchasing the whole animal and butchering the meat ourselves rather than buying it already cut makes all of our meat is fully traceable. If you would like details of the farm your meat came from please just ask us.
