Cuts of Meat / Private Butchery

At Martin’s Meats we like to use every possible part of the animal to ensure we get value for money from all the hard work that it takes to rear Beef, Lamb and Pork in the Cotswolds.

The choice of cuts available can be very confusing. Here is a quick guide to whats on offer and what part of the animal is best for your meal.

If you want a particular cut of meat not shown online please feel free to contact us directly and we will cut it for you.

Private Butchery

We offer a private butchery service. This service is for Farmers and Livestock Owners. All our animals are slaughtered at P.J.King abattoir, Court Farm, Gloucester. This is a high welfare abattoir which is based 8 miles from our Farm and cutting plant.

Beef

For the cost of 85p per kilo (utm carcass weight) we will dryage / hang your carcass for 4 weeks in our unique salt ageing chamber, then butcher the carcass to your requirements, vacum pack in manageable size packs and label.

We are a licenced otm cutting plant UK1025ec. This enables us to also do private butchery for otm cattle, cost 95p per kilo (otm carcass weight)
