Hanging beef carcasses

Lauren’s just taken these great photos of Apley’s in-house butcher Craig Whitehouse, who has made these Tiger Tails – children are guaranteed to love them. For pudding, dip into Apley Farm Shop’s freezers & take home some local Churchfields icecream too, perfect for these lovely hot afternoons.

Our traditional butcher hangs our carcasses, which means the meat is cut on site, as & when it’s required, not prepared in advanced. Beef, for example, is at its best when it has been hung for 28 days in a chiller. Using whole carcasses not only means the meat’s provenance is clearer, it’s also fresher & customers can request their preferred cuts. Whenever possible, we source our whole carcasses from the Apley Estate itself & local Shropshire farmers. The meat’s provenance can be traced from the farm marks on the carcasses themselves.

Tiger Tails are pork sausage stuffed with grated cheese & wrapped with bacon.

His 5lb specials are currently:

  • 5lb chicken fillets—£14
  • 5lb minced beef—£14
  • 5lb smoked back bacon—£15
  • 5lb pork sausage—£14
  • 5lb pork chops—£14
