and direct to individual customers through our online shop.
Based in Upper Wensleydale, North Yorkshire we are positioned to accept locally
farmed and reared animals right on our doorstep.
They do not travel over long distances, reducing the stress on the animal.
We personally know the source and provenance of the animal and as we control the
whole process we can ensure the quality of our final meat products to you.
We believe in the welfare of animals and reducing stress to the animal which helps maintain the quality of the and hence the flavour of the meat.
Animal welfare and environmental considerations are always a high priority for our business.
To that end we have extensive accreditations and are audited by the British Retail Consortium to Global Standard Food Issue 5 - required in order to supply major supermarkets.
"Our meat is only as good as our suppliers. That's why we'll only work with the very best!"
One of our major strengths is in our procurement supply base which is Wensleydale and the surrounding area.
Our key point-of-difference is our personal links with our local livestock farmers.
We buy all our lambs and beef from farms or local auction marts, Hawes Farmers Mart, Kendal Auction Mart etc. to ensure traceability, quality and animal welfare.
Working in close partnership with our suppliers is core to our business and we value highly direct contact with our farmers for knowledge, innovation, assurance and sustainable development.
We believe this is key to supplying and ensuring we provide top quality products.
