We are a traditional family butchers with shops in Saffron Walden, Braintree and Bury St Edmunds. As lovers of great food and cooking, our priority is sourcing quality suppliers. Paul Humphrey and generations of his family before him were regulars at the local cattle markets. Along with grazing his own cattle, this has given Paul a keen eye for what makes great meat. With very few livestock markets in operation, nowadays Paul visits the local farmers and small abattoirs in our area to find out traditional breeds and the very best meat.
The beef at Humphreys Butchers is hung and dry aged, it is this traditional way of maturing meat, which gives it a fabulous flavour. Our butchers can prepare specialist cuts, add homemade stuffings or aromatic marinades to help you create a memorable meal.
Deep freeze orders and your home reared meats can be prepared and butchered at Humphreys Butchers to your requirements.
