Farm Shop Butchery


We passionately believe that only the best will do, so, as well as rearing our own lamb, we work closely with local farmers and producers, whose standards match our own, to bring you high quality traceable grass fed beef, free range pork & poultry.

Croots Butchery

Here’s what you can expect to see on our Butchery Counter at Croots Farm Shop:

Croots Beef
We source the finest beef and have an extensive range of the juiciest steaks, like the most tender fillet or the rump and sirloin. If you need a little help on how to cook the perfect steak, please ask our Butchers.
Rack of Lamb
Our lamb is naturally reared either at home or from local farmers for the perfect flavour and tenderness. With a wide range of cuts from a whole leg of lamb to our lamb steaks and lamb and mint burgers
Croots Butchery Pork
Naturally bred outdoors for their outstanding succulence and flavour, our Packington pork range varies from roasting joints with plenty of crackling to midweek pork chops to our large range of sausages.

Our range changes through the seasons – during the summer expect to see a wide range suitable for summer eating from kebabs, spatchcock chickens, ribs, burgers, sausages and the juiciest aged steaks. In the winter we have all sizes and types of beef, lamb, pork and chicken joints for roasting or for the slow cooker, casserole and braising steaks and a wide range of steaks and chops.

We offer 3 for £15 across a range of products including our award winning sausages range, Croots homemade burgers, chicken legs and dry cured bacon. We also offer a couple of meat packs- including our Healthy Meat Pack for £28 with 400g extra lean mince, 400g extra lean diced beef, 400g low fat sausages, 2 lean gammon steaks, 2 lean pork steaks and 2 chicken fillets!

We’ve got an ever changing range of prepared and ready to cook dishes from stir fries, meatballs, our very popular teriyaki to a wide range of prepared chicken meals such as Hunters chicken to Mexican flavoured chicken fillets.

Butchery Manager



The Butchers hang the meat for a minimum of 21 days, then prepare it all by hand ensuring the perfect cut of meat for you. Our expert team is on hand daily to answer any queries, assist you with requirements, help you choose the right meat for the occasion, and even give cooking tips to ensure our customers get the best flavours from their meat. All our meat used in the café or in our savoury bakery products are 100% supplied by the Butchery department and therefore they all use the very best ingredients.

Steak and Lemon
Lamb in the Bone


We have our own flock of ewes at the farm and they together with Kay’s Dad’s lambs give us a supply of home produced lamb to the Butchery for a large part of the year. The lamb is all reared outside, grass fed and allowed to mature naturally so tastes really good! We also take lambs to fill any gaps from local farmers nearby.



We work closely with local farmer the Heath’s family from Hazelwood Hall Farm a Derbyshire grass fed beef supplier with a herd of Limousin Cattle just 10 minutes away from us. The Butchers hang the beef for a minimum of 21 days, then prepare all the carcasses by hand to get that perfect joint or steak just for you!

Pork Joint


Rob & Alec Mercer from Staffordshire-based Packington Pork have been supplying us for many years. Their pigs are truly free-range. Born and living outdoors for their whole lives, they’re reared to the highest welfare standards, with plenty of space to roam, be sociable and wallow in the mud on sunny days.

Our free range chicken also comes from the Packington farms. All their chickens roam free on the farm’s pasture and they are recipients of the Good Chicken Award from the group Compassion in World Farming – so they receive the highest standards of care and welfare. The remainder of our chicken comes from high welfare British farms.
