Black Barn Butchers opened in 2012 when Director David Mitchell approached Charles Secrett about the possibility of opening a retail butchery unit at the farm. Since opening the business has gone from strength to strength with a loyal customer base and new customers finding us every day. In November 2014 the shop was awarded entry in to the Q Guild of butchers which is an organisation of the top 110 butchers in the UK. Now in mid 2015 we are about to expand our retail space to almost double to allow us to offer a wider range of fresh meat.
