About Us

McIntyre Meats

Based at Bainbridge in Wensleydale, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. The Company is family run by Martin and Lindsey McIntyre. Established in 2001.
We are a family owned purveyor of fine fresh meats to Wholesale and Retail Specialist supplier of Dales Lamb and Beef

Finalist in The Meat and Poultry Processing Awards The Small Processing Business of the Year 2015...

McIntyre Meats moved to a new purpose built abattoir and cutting plant to promote local produce and provide a service for local farmers in Wensleydale.
• We comply with all the latest EC hygiene regulations, reinforcing the company's commitment to guaranteed quality.
• We are proud of our products and traditional good honest values underpins our business.
• We supply top quality meat from local Farms to businesses, butchers, supermarkets 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. Farming "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.

Martin McIntyre

CEO, Co-Founder

Martin McIntyre personally inspects all animals himself to ensure quality and security of provenance. "Animal welfare and environmental considerations are always a high priority for our business. Our business concept is quite simple and is operated with care and a passion for quality products. We buy all our lambs and beef from Dales farms and local auction marts to ensure traceability, quality and animal welfare assurance. We then process the locally reared meat from arrival to shipment to you. As we control all the processing at every stage following the purchase of the animal and are sure of the provenance of the meat, I can personally guarantee the quality of all of our products to you. I believe this is key to supplying and ensuring we provide top quality products. It ensures depth of natural flavour developed through traditional techniques and upholds the highest welfare standards."
