Buckingham’s Artisan Butchery was established in March 2017 taking on a Butchery concession at Greensmith’s Supermarket in Lower marsh, Lambeth. After 3 successful years trading owner Damon Buckingham decided it was time to find a long term home & moved the business to the beautiful village of West Meon.
We only buy native breed cattle as they are slower growing than some of the continental breeds and we believe they carry a greater depth of flavour & texture. Our Beef is Dry Aged for a minimum of 30 days before we sell it to enhance to flavour and allow the enzymes in the meat to break down naturally for beautifully tender meat.
We work with a number of small farmers who share the same passion for animal welfare as us & we visit all the farms a minimum of twice a year to ensure standards are being maintained.
We are lucky enough to have some fantastic cattle on our doorstep at Westbury Manor Farm, West Meon farmer Simon Cobden has a mixed breed herd from which we pick live to our specification.
We also have Beef sourced for us in Scotland by the Duff family, Macduff work with a group of farmers who graze their cattle on the lush Scottish grass and then Andrew & his team select carcasses to our specification & send them to us. www.macduffbeef.co.uk
