Hello and Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

I hope that you had a great Christmas and New Year.

It is safe to say that 2020 was different! There have been some obvious lows, but also some positives. We have seen many more customers, both in store and online. People that want to support local, but more so, want to be part of the growing sustainable and regenerative agriculture movement. A year when people have reassessed and moved from fad diets and fast food to a more balanced way of living.

Our shop and website have been at bursting point, which has been amazing to see. It has given us the drive and confidence in what we do, and to keep pushing to improve our service.

It was a pleasant surprise to be voted ‘Best Butcher in Wales’ by the ‘Slow Food’ movement. ‘Slow Food’ is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. To be recognised by such a prestigious organisation is extremely pleasing.

It is your continued support that makes this possible and by supporting us you are supporting Welsh agriculture and supporting the ethical meat revolution. We are all playing a part in making farming better and allowing livestock and nature to coexist.

Please take any opportunity to share your recipes, food pictures and your family feasts on social media and don’t forget to tag us! @orieljonesltd

Thank you once again for your continued support,


Shaun and all at Oriel Jones
