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)
