Farmers are not the only 'rare-breeds' in the countryside these days! High quality, high-street butchers have disappeared from many of our towns

At Wiltshire Village Meats we have been determined from the outset not to cut out, or take trade away from our local butchers but to work with them and support their business as well as our own. Walter Rose and Son have been established since 1847, the business is run by the brothers Steve and Andy Cook whose family have been butchers in Devizes for three generations. They have two shops, in the Wiltshire market towns of Devizes and Trowbridge. They understand the importance of sourcing the best quality local meats and how to handle the meat to preserve the quality. Walter Rose and Son supply many top class hotels, resturants and pubs and also several local Schools as well.

Where possible meat is sourced from farmers in Wiltshire, including our own farm at Bishops Cannings, but some meat is sourced from outside the county but only where it meets our high standards of welfare and quality.

If you ever visit Devizes or Trowbridge a visit to their shop is well worthwhile. The Devizes shop is justly famous for its superb delicatessen as well as its wonderful array of meat.

Through the advantages of mail-ordering now everyone buying from this website is shopping at one of the best high-street butchers in the West Country. All the meat available from Wiltshire Village Meats will be correctly and carefully handled, cut and packed by the butchers at Walter Rose. Ensuring the highest quality meat will be delivered to you in perfect condition.

2007 Devizes Food Festival

Steve and Andy Cook of Walter Rose and Son are sponsoring this years Devizes Food and Drink Festival. The festival is launched on the 14th July. On the 21st July there is a Wiltshire Summer Feast for over 150 people, with a menu involving the minimum food miles. This is something similar to the competition BBC Points West held in 2005 'Eat the West' which set out to produce a meal with the lowest food miles. It was a fun series but with a serious message and we were very proud that West End Farm pork in conjunction with Walter Rose won the competition. Recently the features made for the series have been put on the BBC Wiltshire website www.bbc.co.uk/wiltshire/etw
