A reputation for exceptional product

We are a privately owned family business with a reputation for exceptional product, innovation and industry leading animal welfare standards. Our facilities combine traditional British butchery technique with some of the best technological prowess in the food sector.

Have a look at our Craft page for more information about the art of butchery and how we are tirelessly working to transfer our knowledge to the next generation.

our craft

Our business is conducted on our two sites – our main facility in picturesque Stapleton, Yorkshire and a secondary site in Skellingthorpe, Lincolnshire.

A committed team of over 700 staff oversee the whole process: from procuring the best possible livestock from our carefully picked group of farms, through butchery, retail packaging and despatch before it finally arrives on the supermarket shelf or as part of the restaurant dining experience.

Check out our cattle page for more information about how we are doing the best for our farmers and the animals they rear for us.
