In these times, I find it admirable that Swaledale is 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.
Bright Restaurant, London
Our Chef customers have the same passion for heritage breed meat as we do; they understand that the distinctive flavour and superior texture of our dry-aged native breed meat is unparalleled, it really gives their restaurant menu the wow factor.
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.
Fat is where all the flavour lives, and the ultimate fat is that which is put down slowly and naturally as an animal matures at its own pace. Slow grown and marbled, that’s the kind of fat we’re talking about, once you’ve tasted it you can’t go back to mass produced commercial meat.
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.

Our whole carcass butchery is an expert skill and a labour of love; it takes time and precision to separate each individual muscle group, but the results are so worth it.
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.
Leroy, Shoreditch, London
Swaledale meat is of a consistent high quality; all of our animals are native breed and grass-fed, and live freely in the wild landscape of the Yorkshire Dales. Our animals are free to exhibit natural behaviours and forage for a varied and nutritious diet. You really can taste the difference, happy and healthy animals provide top quality meat every time.
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.
