The Wensleydale Butcher

We source all our lamb and beef from within either the Yorkshire Dales or Lake District National Parks with an effort to support local communities.

It is not lost on us here at the Wensleydale Butcher how lucky we are to work, rest and play in one of the most stunning and environmentally rich areas of the country. You can taste that in our products !

From our base in upper Wensleydale, within earshot of Curlews and Lapwings, that have shared the pastures & meadows with traditional grazing cattle and sheep for centuries, there is now’t truly better than Dale to Doorstep.

The Concept

It’s a simple concept, operated with care and a passion for quality product. We buy all our lamb and beef from Dales farms at local auction marts to ensure traceability, quality and animal welfare. Reduced travel distances minimises our carbon footprint and the stress on the stock.

We then process the locally reared meat from arrival to shipment to you.

As we control all the processing, and are sure of the provenance of the meat, we can guarantee the quality of all of our products to you.

Why Are We Different?

The Farmers. We highly value direct contact with our local farmers for knowledge, innovation, welfare assurance and sustainable development. We know where all our meat comes from as it’s personally selected by Martin McIntyre, The Wensleydale Butcher. Our meat comes from local Dales farms and local auction marts to ensure traceability and quality.

We have close relationships with our animal suppliers, and often they are either delivered by the farmer or collected by us directly from the farm. We believe local is key to supplying and ensuring we provide top quality products to you. Our exclusive relationship with Clive and Amanda Owen, The Yorkshire Shepherdess, is a fine example of this.

It secures high quality natural flavour developed through traditional techniques and holds the highest welfare standards.

Why Buy Direct?
