Sustainability 

We're very conscious of the carbon footprint that eating a lot of meat can leave.

 

That is why we are strong advocates for eating less meat, and making sure the meat we do eat has the smallest possible footprint. 

We are also committed to minimising the impact the shop has on the environment. We constantly look for farms that take their environmental impact seriously. For example: 

 

  • Two of our newest suppliers are Pasture Fed Livestock Association (PFLA) certified, which means they operate regenerative farms. These young farmers are at the forefront of farming practices which look after soil and habitats. For example, re-wilding woodland to enhance biodiverstiy; using rainwater that falls on farm buildings to feed the livestock; and using mob grazing to eliminate the use of fertilisers and restore the quality of the soil 
     

  • We also buy beef from a carbon negative farm, which means his farm captures more carbon than it emits 
     

  • We have bought directly from the Surrey Wildlife Trust since we opened. The beef we get from here is conservation grazed- find out more here. 
     

  • As much of our meat as possible comes from farms and smallholdings nearby. It is all free-range and some is organic. Almost all of our meat comes from Surrey, Hampshire or West Sussex  

As well as taking care with the products we sell, we: 

​​

  • Use paper to package our goods wherever possible 
     

  • Use our loyalty cards to incentivise customers to bring their own packaging - we've had Tupperware, bread packing and the outer bag for multipacks of crisps amongst others. A completed loyalty card earns a 10% discount  ​​

 

  • Sell our own re-usable bags 

 

  • Buy our electricity from a renewable energy supplier  

 

We know we are not perfect, and are always looking for ways to improve how we do things.

 

We will always be a micro business that buys meat from small producers. Because it's not about selling more meat, it is about selling the best meat. And there's not tons and tons of that around!
