Turner & George are purveyors of the kind of meat you'd always want at your table. We take great care in sourcing our beasts and birds from suppliers and farms that reflect our own meticulous attitude to rearing and taste. More importantly, all of our meat is free from growth promoters, hormones, antibiotics and cruelty.
Whether it's lamb from the Essex Marshes, or beef from the Yorkshire Moors, you can rest assured that under the guidance of James and Richard, the suppliers from which we source our core range ensure the highest welfare standards are met and achieved.
Our Black Label Range, for the real meat connoisseurs, features singular rare and native breeds from farms we know share our passion for ethical rearing. After all, it's only meat that has been bred naturally that can truly taste amazing.
RARE AND NATIVE BREED
Thanks to an increase in industrial farming and cross-breeding, popular in the late 50s and early 60s, the majority of rare-breeds in Britain saw their numbers in a steep decline. Demand for European and Westernised breeds, which increased yield for the mass market, was bigger than ever, and those animals who didn't show the characteristics associated with quick growth were forgotten.
As a result, we are committed to stocking rare and native-breeds only; slow grown animals with fantastic meat qualities, and helping to re-create a demand.
Breeds we see coming through our shops include Highland, Belted Galloway, Longhorn (beef), Tamworth and Old Spot (pork) and Blackface and Texel (lamb).
