Where we will be this week
Dear Customers,

The recent sudden departure of our butcher has caused Michael and I to make some necessary and very difficult decisions.

Since we began the business in 2010 we have found managing a farm, running a butchery and developing markets in London very rewarding and challenging. We very much enjoy the direct contact we have with the various farmers that we work with and feel happy that we are supporting like minded people that care about the quality of the soil, animal welfare and what people are consuming. We also enjoy just as much the contact with our customers who have been so supportive and appreciative of everything that we do.


However, in a nutshell, the workload has just become too great and we have been forced to cut the business right back and focus on areas that works for us. This means that we now employ a part time butcher at the butchery in Forest Row and I work alongside him. We are currently selling our meat locally in Plawhatch Farm Shop on the edge of our village and Seasons Wholefood shop in the centre of the village. We hope to continue building our trade locally which will be more sustainable for us.

With the limited time available for butchery we are able to supply one market in London which will be Crystal Palace. This is because it is the London market closest to us and they are committed to supplying organic produce only. We have been the only butcher on the market since it began and after a lengthy search they have realised that it would be very difficult to replace us.

The decision to leave Spa Terminus and Brockley Market was the difficult one. We are very grateful to them for giving us the opportunity to trade with them over the years. We hold both markets, and people that run them in high regard and are very sad to have to leave them. We also feel very sad that we can no longer supply the customers that came to these markets that we enjoyed serving so much.

Our doors to the butchery in Forest Row will always be open to anyone that would like stay in touch.


With kind regards,
Jayne and Michael
