National Butchers Week 11th – 17th MarCH
The 11th – 17th March is National Butchers Week – a great opportunity to celebrate the hard work of our highly-skilled butchers here in the UK. Unfortunately, most people now shop at large supermarkets (because they can get everything under one roof) rather than use local butchery’s and farm shops. Supermarkets have removed the need for customer interaction with butcher’s, as everything is available pre-packaged and ready to go off the shelf. However, in recent years there has been a gradual increase in awareness of food provenance, and customers seeking trust and transparency with what they’re buying. This is where supermarkets will never be able to compete with our beloved butchers. A butcher can advise you on the best cut of meat to suit your budget, and you know exactly where your meat is coming from. Yes, sometimes supermarkets can beat butchers on price (depending on cut) – but the true cost of cheap meat has been exposed many times in recent years. When you buy from your local butchery you’re getting better quality and you’re supporting local farmers and communities. You’re also helping to support our vital eco-systems by enabling farmers to encourage bio-diversity in the pastures. Our butchers are an integral part of the farm to table movement. Show your support this week by choosing locally produced, premium-quality meat!
