The UK is home to some of the highest quality breeds of farm animals. We work with farms that rear their animals the traditional way, well-tended and in a stress-free environment, to produce meat that is succulent and full of flavour. As farmers ourselves, we know what goes into producing high-quality meat and have handpicked our breeds based on their exceptionally high UK welfare standards and for producing superb flavoursome meat.
British independent farmers
As fifth-generation farmers and artisan butchers, we are committed to supplying excellent quality meat. Our expertise and passion have helped us to build partnerships with a network of trusted independent farmers across the UK who share the same ethos as us for animal welfare and sustainable practices. Our farmers rear their livestock naturally, specialising in free-range and high welfare standards, resulting in exceptional meat. Our farmers can rely on us for a fair price, and their meat will be expertly stored and prepared for guaranteed freshness, quality and flavour.
Powters began in 1881 as a family-run butcher in Newmarket, Suffolk, by our great grandfather, William Harper. Having trained as a butcher, he developed the recipe for our famous award-winning Newmarket sausage, which is now listed in most major UK supermarkets throughout the East of England and even enjoyed by royalty when they visit the horse racing.
We are proudly independent as fifth-generation butchers and farmers. We have our own farm just outside of Newmarket and our very own butcher’s shop in town. Our butchers pride themselves on their craftsmanship, having learned many of their skills from the previous generation of butchers. We are proud to have remained true to our traditional values and have built a reputation for delivering excellent customer service and supplying exceptional quality meat.
Newmarket is where our story began in 1881 and is still home to our family-run butcher shop in 2022. We use the very latest technology in our store and combine it with our traditional butchery methods to ensure we store and supply the highest quality and tastiest meat. Whether you select next day delivery or choose to click and collect in person, our butchers expertly prepare all orders by hand in our Newmarket butchers shop.
