Our Ethos

Embracing local farms and championing community support is the cornerstone of our ethos. We take great pride in crafting virtually everything we sell, establishing a genuine bond with local farmers. This commitment not only elevates the quality of our products, but it also fortifies the connection with the exciting rural food landscape of the Three Counties.

Beef – Sourced within 3 miles of the shop in Ross on Wye, using traditional breeds such as pedigree Longhorn, Dexters and of course world famous Herefords. Matured and butchered in the traditional manner on site by our highly skilled team.

Lamb – Elaine Arthurs is a 4th generation farmer benefiting from the rich Herefordshire pastures, she provides us with breeds chosen to produce premium animals for the best flavour profile.

Pork -  We source our pork from Alexander and Angell Farms from Gloucestershire. They rear a cross between the two breeds: Landrace and Large White. The Landrace is known for producing lots of piglets and is characteristic in its longer loin which is optimal for the fork end of the supply chain. The Large white provide a hardy breed to cross with as it can sustain a variety of environmental factors.

Game – We are renowned for our quality local game which is available for mail order nationwide with our accolades including being national “Game Butcher of the Year” 3 years running. Sourcing from local estates and also Tim hunting and harvesting a portion of the game himself ensuring the quality is up to the highest standard that Hanks’ have become known for.

Deli – Producing the majority of our cooked goods on site, our skilled team use only the best fresh components available to us to create tasty meal ideas for our customers. By making our products in house we are able to take any special requests given 3 days notice.

Our insistence of making everything from scratch adds a distinctive touch to each item making it more than a distinctive purchase – is a reflection of our dedication to authenticity and supporting our local community collaboration.
