About us

The Strolenbergs  and Dohertys  joined forces in October 2014. With Gareth’s Butchery knowledge and time managing two shops and with Greg’s ex Chef, Butcher and  a manager at a local wholesale meat company the stellar two embarked on a high welfare, locally farmed meat to table mission.

Both passionate about traditional butchery the  pair recognised that good food can be locally sourced and sustainable, and  believe the truth is in the tasting… and it is!  Low food miles means less stress for the animal and  ultimately delivers a better tasting meat. With Shimpling Park Farm, Rookery Farm, Barrack Farm, Brook Farm, Grove Farm, Collett’s Farm all on board the Lavenham Butcher’s journey began.

Our Lavenham  Butcher’s family consists of Greg (Master Butcher) &  Jen (P R girl/Girl Friday  (and anything else at the shop that needs doing),  Andy and Paul  our  master butcher’s  with many years experience, Mike our newest recruit ,  Andrew our onsite Pie-Maker, Michael our mid-week delivery driver.

Our Elmswell family consists of   Gareth (Master butcher) and Nicola (Book keeper) Jerry ( Master Butcher & Manager) and Jack our newly qualified  Butcher.

We aim to provide a great service with ample tips on how to cook, what to cook, and  what else  could complement your  meal.

We look forward to meeting you and serving you.
