Behind the scenes at a butchers for Christmas
Once most businesses have had their Christmas parties and have shut their doors for the Christmas break that's when you see the butchery trade kick into overdrive.
With a reputation to maintain in providing quality and freshness we have to wait until the last moment to get the meat orders delivered to us and then it is all hands to the pumps. 1,000's and 1,000's of fresh sausages need to be made, many hundreds of Christmas orders need to be made up.
The only way we can deliver the quality we are known for is starting at the crack of dawn, in reality well before dawn. When most normal people are fast asleep our dedicated team are here with knifes clattering against steel as they create the joints that families will use to create their perfect Christmas dinners.
We know that there will be queues and thank our customers for their patience, we always seem to have a happy queue (a proud British tradition!). We wanted to reassure you that we are flat out behind the scenes working frantically with safety and quality in mind.
