How much meat do you eat?

By 17th July 2016Shop News

Riverford Farm Shop CowsEarlier in the year, sister business, Riverford Organics, posed the question ‘how much meat should we be eating?’ It’s a good question to ask – particularly if you’re a vegetable box company.

Like them we sell more vegetables than meat, but the butchers counter has always been a big part of the shops. It’s a statement of who we are and what we believe in – it’s how we started, and integral part of the business, and arguably livestock farming is what the South West’s all about. However, we do see that meat sale are falling off a little.

Are you eating less meat? Would you like more, quality, additive free meat products? Or are you buying elsewhere? Would you rather our meat was 100% organic?
