Celebrations, giveaways, and surprises - it's National Butchers' Week...

It's National Butchers’ Week from March 8-14 – a chance to celebrate the top-quality meat and service you receive from your expert local butcher.

This year it’s particularly special for us, as it coincides with our own 45th anniversary.

The third generation of the Badley family is now proud to be leading the business which was founded by Gordon Badley back in 1976.

Now, just like back then, we’re proud to be providing the very best produce by supporting our local farmers.

As a way of saying thanks to our loyal customers, we’re currently running not one but TWO fantastic giveaways.

We’re really grateful for all the support which you have shown to us - particularly over the past year which has been difficult for us all. And we want to give something back by way of saying thanks.

So . . . on offer is one of our new Breakfast Packs worth £20, plus a Butcher’s Essential meat pack worth £30.

You’ve got to be in it to win it, though: all you have to do is fill in our entry form no later than Wednesday March 10. The winners will be chosen at random and announced later in the week.

The past week was British Pie Week, of course – and thanks to everyone for their kind comments about our legendary pork pies, which continue to be a firm favourite.

If you’ve not yet treated yourself, well what are you waiting for? 

How do you eat yours? Send us your pictures, or indeed any pie recipe suggestions: we’d love to share them.

We were delighted to welcome the Shropshire Star last week to feature our business, as part of a look at the changing face of butcher’s stores since the Covid pandemic.

If you’ve not seen it yet – and the picture of our director Kay out on her socially-distanced delivery round – take a look here:

If you’re interested in knowing more about the behind-the-scenes secrets of our business, keep an eye on our social media channels over the next few days.

As part of the National Butchers’ Week celebrations, we’re working on some videos which will give you a flavour of various elements of the company, from creating our best-selling burgers and pies to linking sausages, cutting the perfect steak, and more.

Thank you, as ever, for your support. We look forward to seeing you soon.
