I've long looked for an exceptional butcher to work alongside and I’m genuinely thrilled to be working with Swaledale Online Butchers as they approach all they do with the respect and love so essential to such a trade. Conscientious to the marrow; their meat is remarkable.

Jorge and Charlie, our founders

Established by brothers-in-law, Jorge Thomas and Charlie Cowling, Swaledale Online Butchers work with a network of around 30 small, family-run farms and smallholdings dotted around the wildly beautiful Yorkshire Dales who exclusively rear the hardy, native livestock breeds of Britain.

What our customers say

  • At Bright we feel immeasurably proud to work with butchers like Swaledale. It’s abundantly clear that Jorge and his team have a passion for lesser known breeds of pork and beef, and have a fantastic relationship with their farmers across Yorkshire. The aroma, flavour and texture of their meat, when cooked slowly over burning coals on our grill, is a wonderful thing.

    William GleaveBright Restaurant, London
  • Good meat is a joy. When I first tried a lesser known breed of pork reared on a small farm it was a moment of revelation. Whether it be beef, pork or lamb, the breed of animal defines its flavour, texture and character. When married with a good butcher who understands the responsibility of taking these prime animals and continuing the love.

    Henry HarrisChef & Beverage Director @ Wright Brothers
  • Meat from Swaledale Online Butchers will always be nicely aged, well-sourced and excellently priced. The staff are professional and helpful, we have used them for years.

  • I've been working with Swaledale Butchers for some time now and cannot express what an amazing and consistent product they supply to myself at Leroy from their network of farmers in and around the Yorkshire Dales. Incredible heritage beef and please don’t forget the pork especially the chops. Give them a crack and support the local food supply chain.

    Sam KamienkoLeroy, Shoreditch, London
  • We’ve been working with Swaledale for a good few years now. Their product is top notch, as are their people. The love and care that goes into the butchery and animal husbandry really reflects in what comes through our kitchen weekly. Their beef in particular has a rich, unctuous fat ideal for barbecue – rendering through the meat slowly when smoking gently and caramelising beautifully on a hot grill. Top restaurant quality product available for the home-cook / backyard barbecue enthusiast.

    David CarterSmokestak, London
  • In these times, I find it admirable that Swaledale are switching from supplying restaurants to all of us at home. I know they are doing this, in the main, to help support the farmers that they have such a close relationship with. A win win situation for anyone who appreciates the best, and cares for our food producers, I can’t wait to receive my first Swaledale home delivery.
