This is a quite exceptional shop. The meat is of outstanding quality, largely rare breeds sourced from the owner's farm. The staff are charming, helpful, and always have excellent advice. You can get your organic milk there (with refillable bottles), and the produce is all exceptional. Whether it is giant free range chicken breasts, fantastic beef fillet, or wonderful lamb (their own or from nearby Plumtree) it is all of the highest quality. The sausages are outstanding, as are the burgers, the steak haché, the pre-prepared kebabs, and a variety of other easy options (the stuffed chicken breasts when available are a complete joy, as are some of the stir fries). The local cheeses – including fantastic stilton – are first rate. You also know that you are buying from responsible farmers who care about the environment and about the food they produce. There is no factory farming here, but people who appreciate their livestock and farming heritage. Absolutely outstanding.

A new adventure for Elms Farm in Ruddington village, 

Having been introduced to Ruddington Village through attending the Village market in 2019, it felt like a natural move to look at opening a butchers shop here when the previous butcher closed. 

We moved to a new premises at 17 High Street, formally Thomas James offices, the building has lent itself very well to our new shop. 

Ruddington Butchers is headed up by Paul Yates, who made the move from working at the farm to take up the reins in managing this shop. Paul is helped by his wife Liz. Chris Brown turns his hand to butchery and you will find him in the shop on Friday and Saturdays, he is full of information about the farm and will be able to talk to you about where your meat comes from. New to the team is Oliver Bowler who splits his time between helping with the butchery back at Costock and working here at the beginning of the week with Paul. 

Ruddington Butchers has a wide variety of meat available, an ever growing deli counter with great british cheeses and cured meats.

Taking pride in our producers, looking after our livestock, 

Here at Elms Farm, we produce our own beef and lamb. Our livestock enjoys a lovely outdoor life and is given plenty of time to mature on our lush grass. We are a non-intensive farm and put the welfare of our animal first. When selecting a producers, we always choose farmers that share our values and provide our clients with products that we are proud to sale. We give priority to local producers and are producers here at Costock Butchers and Farm shop are 100% British.
