When I opened the Garforth shop nearly a decade ago, there was no other butcher on the high street, where in the past there had been four. This was of course a good business opportunity, but also a chance to be part of a thriving local community that deserved a traditional, high quality, family butchers, with good access to the shop for all ages.
After the success of the Garforth shop the Boston Spa high street shop opened in 2007. I’ve been in the butchery trade since 1977 since leaving school in Leeds and my sons Ross and Lewis both work in the business. Both are fully trained butchers and Ross is also a qualified chef. He runs the Boston Spa shop. Both have food hygiene accreditations from Thomas Danby College in Leeds.
