The Butchers

We believe the best quality meat starts with happy, healthy animals.

The Butcher’s at Hartley Farm

Our story began over five generations ago and we have been farming livestock in the village of Winsley, in Wiltshire ever since. Today we are home to a suckler herd of native-breed grass-fed beef cattle. In 2008, in an effort to return great quality local meat to our local market we opened our farm shop and butchers and have not looked back since.

We believe the best quality meat starts with happy, healthy animals. At the heart of everything we do is the basic farming principle of high welfare and good animal husbandry. Along with our own beef we source from local farmers who also share our ethos. Our meat is traceable, properly cared for before and after slaughter and as a result has won us many awards over the years, most notably the Farmer’s Weekly Local Food Farmer of the Year.

Traditional butchery

Our meat is sourced directly from local farmers. We dry-age our meat, our beef in particular for at least 3 weeks. Our skilled team of butchers cut and prepare all our meat the traditional way by hand. All our sausages are homemade using our own unique blends of herbs and spices.

For today’s market

Today’s world has brought with it new challenges, especially at meal time. We work hard to find a solution for today’s demands. We have a range of gluten free products and also prepared meals for those last minute mid-week meals. Of course, we use the same high quality ingredients for our meal solutions to ensure convenience doesn’t compromise quality.
