Hi Nicki

This is genius! Does anyone have any recommendations for the Derbyshire area? Thank you. Kindest regards. Nicki

If you look in the guide you will see an entry for Coates in Alrewas near Burton on Trent.  We can't recommend them highly enough.  My OH has also been on one of their butchery courses and had a tour of the entire works and everything is a set up and operated to the very hightest standards of animal welfare.

Pigs are done on a Monday only ... see the entry in the guide.

The course was excellent .... and if you do what we did and time it right you can butcher your own half pig.

I take my pigs to Humphries near Chelmsford.  Its a large slaughterhouse but with me always puts my animals through first.  The staff don't change and the handler is very humane (but that may be because my eagle eye is on him  ;) ).
 
I used to send from there to a butcher from there but stopped because I think he "miscounted" the meat I was due back on several occasions.  The final straw was when he mistook my pig for a three legged pig he must have had for someone else, cos I only got back two shoulders and 1 leg.  He charged 40 for cutting and the slaughterhouse charge 22 for killing.
 
Is 66 for kill and cut about right?

I used taylors at witton le wear last time and although they where good at handling the pigs I didnt think the butchering was that good and they dont wrap the meat, it is all in a sealed box but they do only charge 26 for killing and cutting
Taking 2 to simpsons  on Sunday as they have been reccomended by several people so will let you all know how it goes

I am thinking of taking my pigs to Dunblane, I am sure that I have heard someone mention them but don't see them on the guide.
