How much meat do you eat?

Riverford Farm Shop CowsEarlier in the year, sister business, Riverford Organics, posed the question ‘how much meat should we be eating?’ It’s a good question to ask – particularly if you’re a vegetable box company.

Like them we sell more vegetables than meat, but the butchers counter has always been a big part of the shops. It’s a statement of who we are and what we believe in – it’s how we started, and integral part of the business, and arguably livestock farming is what the South West’s all about. However, we do see that meat sale are falling off a little.

Are you eating less meat? Would you like more, quality, additive free meat products? Or are you buying elsewhere? Would you rather our meat was 100% organic?
