Fresh meats

The provenance of our fresh beef, lamb, pork and poultry is of the utmost importance, and we take great pride in sourcing the vast majority of our meats from the north of England.

Our fresh meat is only procured from approved suppliers to exacting standards laid down in the AHDB Meat Purchasing Guide. All meat supplied by us is fully traceable from field to fork.


We launched our Lakeland Beef scheme in 2001. Every week we buy a quantity of live cattle through Harrison & Hetherington’s auction mart in Carlisle to help support the local farming community. All our beef primals are 100% guaranteed to be from British farms and are sourced locally wherever possible. All are carefully selected to meet thorough specifications, ensuring the highest quality final product reaches you.  



Our whole lambs are sourced from a small number of well-established family-ran meat processors. We work hard to maintain the quality you would expect for 52 weeks of the year.


The vast majority of our fresh pork is bought from Maurice Wharton of Black Brow Abattoir, based near Wigton, Cumbria. The pigs are bred and reared to the British Quality Assured Pork standard which is very similar in nature to the more familiar Red Tractor animal welfare.
