Supporting local is very important to the core values of our business and we endeavour to source all our meat from the local area
Coming from a farming background Toby and the team are very particular with the sourcing of all products. The Family Farm in Highworth supplies the shop with Lamb, Beef, game and eggs. Toby visits the farm regularly and liaises with the farmers with regards the welfare of the animals allowing him to ‘hand pick’ what is to go to the slaughterhouse directly for us at the shop. Ali (Toby’s wife) also has family connections within the farming community and they receive lamb directly from her relative’s farm in the Mendips.
Toby Haynes Family Butchers also has a good relationship with ‘Jamie’s Farm’ in Box, from which we receive pork and lamb. Chicken is sourced from a local poultry farm in Radstock and Venison is also locally sourced.
On top of these direct suppliers, we have a long standing relationship with a local slaughterhouse who assist us in locating additional local producers and stock as and when needed.
It is important to the business that we know as much of the provenance to the meat as possible so as to establish not only good working relationships with suppliers but the knowledge that our customers can rely on us to be in the knowledge that we are serving the best quality meat that we can source.
