Oakes Farm Shop Balsall Common - Passionate About Local Foods

Our butchery sells a wide variety of produce, some of which has been reared on our own farm. We place great stock on the welfare of our animals during their lives and rest assured that our animal husbandry of our chosen suppliers is of the highest standards.

We are delighted that the expansion of our business has provided the vehicle to showcase some of the region’s top quality local produce. This includes lamb and beef passionately reared on our land by Steve Truelove of Temple Farm, Fen End, free range pork and chicken from Packington Free Range and turkeys from Adlingtons of Balsall Common.

Our in-house butchers, Paul and his team, are never happier than when chatting to customers, offering advice on recipes, cooking times and meat preparation. Their passion and respect for the meat is obvious. If you’re preparing a dinner party, a Sunday roast or a more informal BBQ, come along and have a chat with us. We’d be delighted to help you through the choices.

We pride ourselves in finding the best local produce for our customers.
We like to keep our food miles to a minimum… check out our suppliers below!
