I would add Daysdrove, Bishops Castle, Shropshire.  They also deliver to local butchers if you require bacon etc

I can personally recommend Bakers of Nailsea (Near Bristol) They are absouletly brilliant.. offer butchery if needed and having visited them myself I would never take any animal anywhere else, they are kind, considerate and as strange as this may seem it's a lovely place.

C snells wholesale south chard Its a third generation small family business with oldfashioned values with a excellent customer relation understanding. Nothing is a problem and when starting out the owner is only to pleased to sit down with you and go through what they can do for you ie prices, cuts ,etc if required you could even take your own animal to the end you could stand and watch what happens in the stunning pen! Gruesome im sure some people will say but evidence that this slaughterhouse has nothing to hide and in some smallholders cases in my eyes reaffirms the whole reason why we are doing this to provide the animals with a proper life and a painless end

I took my boys into STM at Henfield yesterday.  Seeing as I was in tears at the approach to the "farm" they were very kind, and the patience shown to my boys  by the handlers was fantastic.  Very happy to recommend them.
