Best Butchers in London – Award Winners

Shane Holland Executive Chairman of Slow Food UK visited Morley Butchers in Crouch End to present the 2015 London Best Butchers award. The Slow Food London Awards are a real seal of approval because the entrants and the final winners are all selected by London food shoppers.

Now in their third year these awards were created by Slow Food London to support and highlight the growing number of quality food retailers and producers within London which are the polar opposite of supermarkets .

In their awards statement Slow Food London said “The London Best Butchers award to Morley Butchers recognises excellence in their butchery, time-honed skills, as well as their impressive range of game and quality meat.”

“We are so pleased to have won this award for the second year,running, particularly as it is based on votes from our customers. A huge thank you to them for their support and enthusiasm for our products and what we do in the shop.”

Free Range Chickens

We offer selection of tasty free range chickens from several suppliers,  Sutton Hoo, Beech Ridge Farm and Phil Truin. These are all slow growing birds that have enjoyed free range lifestyles and wholesome diets that ensure excellent flavour. Phil Truin supples us with larger birds (6-8 lbs) also Geese for Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Best Quality Farm Chickens

We are supplied direct from our producers who are all rearing free-range chickens in the traditional way – producing the best birds for customers using the highest welfare standards.

High Welfare and Wholesome Diet

All of our suppliers keep the birds in flocks outside in the meadows. This promotes natural behaviours in the chickens and also allows them to forage at will.

With plenty of  access to the out side world the chickens have all the space they need with grassy pasture to graze, insects in the bottom of the hedge to scratch out or small field shelters to rest in.

The birds develop naturally with plenty of exercise which is great for flavour and texture in the meat for your table. These chickens grow slowly to maturity. For comparison this process is nearly double the lifespan of a basic supermarket chicken.

Diet is very important in producing very tasty free range chicken. These birds eat cereals free from any additives and growth hormones.
