AND NOW – WHAT YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR (we hope!) – IT’S OUR WELSH BLACK BEEF SEASON.
Remember, our beef is from indigenous cattle that we breed, that graze on the hill all their lives (and they have good natural lives), and are taken to an abattoir that we trust to treat them well at the last. Then the meat is hung long enough and cut by our expert local butcher. That all adds up to a superb taste that you won’t get from the supermarket.
So we can offer lean beef as: -
* Bargain Boxes – mixed eighth of beef, all joints, at about £220
* Selection Boxes – about £60
* Individual joints, can be cut to order (but contact us asap)
The beef will be ready chilled for collection (visit the farm) or delivery locally, or by overnight courier this weekend, or frozen after that.
We also have frozen Tamworth pork, traditional pig, slow grown and tastier. Teg and mutton coming soon
Please phone / email Barbara, confirm your order if already booked – 01495 755557 / firstname.lastname@example.org
Breaking News (as they say) – our pigs did very well at the Royal Welsh Spring Festival – our young boar was best Tamworth male, and best of all breeds at show, and so has qualified for the UK national final of Young Pig of the Year in September. Great joy! It’s not often that Tamworths win over other, more ‘modern’, breeds
After a rest, we are selling again – top-class pork, beef, lamb / teg / mutton. Orders delivered locally (minimum applies)
Orders being taken for beef boxes of Welsh Black (eighth of beast), can be delivered. Phone for price
This weekend - fresh tasty Tamworth pork boxes, half and quarter pig, joints chops etc to order. Phone for prices
LIVESTOCK FOR SALE
Senior Tamworth boar, big boy, 4 years, working well
Sadly, this is our last day at Usk Farmers Market, after 20+ years. We’ll certainly miss all our customers / friends, and many stallholders. BUT WE ARE STILL SELLING OUR TOP CLASS LOCAL PRODUCE, we hope many of you will still enjoy our tasty meat, and many other people will find out how good home-grown, slow grown, traditional meat is We shall continue to: -
- Sell from the farm – come on up to Pontypool Folly, turn left and see our pigets, lambs and calfs (in season), and the wonderful views (in good weather!)
- Deliver telephone / email orders locally
- Send long distance by overnight courier
So ring Barbara on 01495 755557 or email email@example.com and enjoy!
Assuming you are not flooded out, we hope you had a super Christmas celebration, without suffering a hangover. After our Christmas rush we still have available some frozen Welsh Black beef and Tamworth pork, a few discounted boxes (quarter and half pig, eighth of beef), and a few sausages and porkburgers. Also, for a special feast, a whole suckling pig. So when you have finished the turkey (or are fed up with it), give Barbara a call for the most tasty Welsh meat.
We cannot get to Usk Farmers Market in January, but we can deliver a reasonable meat order locally, and with increasing internet orders we are sending more across the UK by courier
And of course we can sell you live pedigree Tamworth weaners from our prize-winning herd in Spring.
So we wish all our customers a happy and successful New Year, and hope we shall see or hear from you in 2016

TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS AND FRIENDS, WE WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
Evening – recovering after a busy Market today, thanks to all our customers, both for your custom and the chat, we do enjoy the social side! (Stallholders too). Particularly, thanks to one customer for 4 bags of unwanted acorns, our pigs love them! Early morning was particularly hard work, sloshing about loading and unloading in the pouring rain. At least it stopped for the return, and it’s certainly mild for November We still have some lamb/teg joints, and pork and beef (frozen) – and for the next market (21st Nov) we shall have fresh beef – but some of it is sold already, so do give Barbara a call if you wish to make sure of getting what you want. Free delivery locally to Pontypool. Also call us for Christmas orders – if you want large joints of beef or pork, please give us plenty of notice so that our butcher can cut them as you wish. We will have a limited supply of Gammon and bacon, and pork stuffing meat – again we have orders in hand already. Hope to see you on 21st.
THIS SEASON’S LIMITED SUPPLY OF BEEF IS AVAILABLE
Our beef is from the traditional Welsh breed – pedigree, outdoor reared, single-suckled Welsh Black cattle. The meat is hung for 3 weeks, butchered, vac-packed & labelled.
We sell it in individual joints, steaks etc, as from a butcher’s shop, or with 10-20% off counter prices in two sizes of box: -
Standard, with 10% off – about £60 depending on weight – containing: -
- 2 or 3 roasting joints
- 2 sirloin steaks
- 2 rump steaks
- chuck steak
- shin beef
- stewing steak
Large, an eighth of beef, with 20% off - about £240 depending on weight, containing all joints and steaks (including fillet)
We also have some frozen Tamworth pork and lamb
We check our prices against the local supermarket, and for many cuts we are not only competititve, we are cheaper! So far from having to pay extra for this more tasty locally-produced meat, you will usually save money
We deliver reasonable quantities locally around Pontypool and Cwmbran, and by popular demand, we are increasingly sending frozen boxes by courier to addresses throughout Wales and England (carriage extra)
Call Barbara on 01495 755557 for orders, or to ask what is available, or for cooking advice!
