A FEW WORDS ABOUT US

Let us introduce ourselves

Originating in London in 1890, our family have run butcheries for over 125 years! Now run by 5th & 6th generation Hiron family members, we are proud of our provenance.

We relocated to North Devon in 2001 and have be running our shop in Bideford town center for 5 years now. We are really happy to now be dealing directly with farmers and local suppliers as this was not really possible in London where we required a specialist meat buyer who would visit local markets to purchase stock on our behalf.

In the 1960’s the family owned 9 shops in and around London, but with the introduction of meat counters at supermarkets and a shift in consumer buying habits through the 60s & 70s, traditional butchers were in demise and it is estimated that as many as 60,000 independent butcher shops have disappeared from high streets in the UK since 1960 with as few as just 6800 now remaining. We are pleased that our business survived these times.

FRESH, QUALITY BUTCHERS MEAT ONLINE

Traditional services available online…

Though the last few decades have not been great for independent butchers in general, we are pleased to now be seeing a shift in consumer attitudes and we are pleased that people are now showing more interest than ever in the origins of their food and also waking up to the consequences of large scale factory farming.

It is our mission to provide customers with best quality local foods, that have been ethically produced. We do this by working closely with our local farmers and suppliers which ensures great quality but also allows us to offer great produce at realistic and fair prices.
