At Ashby’s we like to uplift local farmers and producers who make quality products and it doesn’t get more local than the Salcombe Meat Company who are our in-house butcher at Ashby’s of Salcombe!

Since 2014, Alex and Lauren Brazier have been hand-rearing and butchering their own traditional breeds of Devon Closewool and Herdwick sheep which they raise in their own fields which run alongside The Blue Whale Café!

In 2016, Alex and Lauren saw an opportunity to work with other like-minded local farmers to supply meat that has travelled the least possible distance from field to fork. Resulting in meat that’s healthier and better for the environment, and tastier too – the Salcombe Meat Company was born!

In their own words:

“We understand that raising slow-grown, grass-fed animals, and practicing whole carcass butchery, means our customers get the very best quality produce. From our own dry-cured bacon and gammon, to our sausages and burgers made in-house, to our renowned Dexter beef, our meat is always local, sustainable and – above all – delicious.”

“At the Salcombe Meat Company, our produce comes from our own farm and other local farms, where sustainable practices and high standards of animal welfare make for great tasting meat with a trusted provenance.”
